Dr. Cheryl has created a dream laboratory that allows people to explore, develop, and attain dreams. In addition, her methods have helped countless individuals enhance and repair their relationships with others.
“My training as a clinician and a coach provides me with a unique perspective and resources that I draw on in serving others. Cultural competency training and lived experiences as an Afro-Caribbean-Panamanian, raised in a country previously occupied by the American government, allow me to appreciate, serve, and navigate well within various cultures,” Dr. Cheryl proudly shared.
With close to five decades worth of experience, Dr. Cheryl has been instrumental in changing the lives of many, and her passion for understanding the many facets of human behavior has allowed her to inspire and empower others.
“My 40+ years of experience providing international life-transforming services and testimonials of former clients inspired me to build my own brand,” she said. “I have been honored to be a part of the transformational life journey of clients during my career as a school social worker, psychotherapist, coach, and trainer. Not only have my clients grown, but I have also grown through my experiences with them,” the visionary added further.
