Cherie Spellman, M.S. LMFT

 Certified Brainspotting Therapist

“I am fearfully and wonderfully made” –Psalm 139:13-14. It’s incredible how God has created us and that we are remarkably made to heal ourselves!

Get unstuck, heal from trauma and have more fulfilling relationships. I provide individualized therapy to every unique person, helping you to find new ways to grow, change and connect to yourself and others – utilizing the best of both the Psychology Field and Christian Faith.

I hold licenses as a Marriage and Family therapist in the State of Texas and the State of Colorado. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University and bachelors in Mental Health from Franciscan University, where I also enjoyed studying Theology. My journey in the field started with serving severe mental illness and substance abuse. I then worked at Catholic Charities for 4 years where I served multiple populations. The focuses of my work there have included women’s issues: women in crisis, pregnancy, loss of pregnancy, and post-abortion.Working in schools with children and teens in several different therapeutic settings and adults with ranging mental health issues and disorders. I also got to serve at the Archdiocese of Cincinnati as their Coordinator for Survivors of Sexual abuse for four years. From there I moved to Denver Colorado in 2017 and went into private practice, focusing on couples, individuals, teens and children. We have now expanded that practice to Texas in the DFW area.

I utilize Brainspotting Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method, Play Therapy, acceptance therapy and mindfulness-based techniques to help my clients facilitate change. I also incorporate systemic and attachment based approaches. Utilizing these therapeutic methods, I have seen people rediscover themselves and improve their ability to fully engage in their lives. I believe and know that you can do the same. I also really enjoy utilizing my catholic theology education and bringing in the many fruits that the Church offers us to grow, heal, change and live life to the fullest.

I have realized that we all need more understanding, kindness, and acceptance in our lives. I long to support and inspire people to be more present, conscious, and intentional. We can move forward to a fully enlivened life by learning to intentionally stay connected to self, relationships, and community. It is very exciting and uplifting to see people heal, transform, and become fully alive again.
