A Counseling Relationship to Guide You on Your Journey
If you’re thinking about starting therapy, you’ve taken the first important step on the path to a sense of true, embodied well-being. It’s a journey that takes courage and commitment, and it ends with a renewed sense of emotional freedom, increased self-acceptance, and a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you.
I’m Sheryl Lilke. As a professional counselor in Madison, WI, I’m devoted to supporting you on this challenging and transformational journey. I’m also a fellow traveler.
As I’ve traveled my own path to wellness, I’ve discovered that no single philosophy or intervention holds all the answers to life’s many challenges. When you and I work together, we’ll draw from a variety of counseling approaches including:
Somatic Psychology, which tells us that the physical sensations we experience in our bodies hold deep meaning and amazing transformational power.
Mindfulness, which enhances psychotherapy by teaching us how to be fully present with our moment-to-moment experience in a curious, non-judgmental way.
EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a method of processing trauma and PTSD that has been proven to reduce the negative effects of distressing thoughts, images, emotions, and body sensations. As a Level II certified EMDR therapist, I have extensive experience using EMDR therapy as an extremely effective treatment for PTSD as well as trauma-related anxiety and depression.
Emotional resourcing, which enables us to access our innate sense of grounding, resilience, and self-compassion.
Good old-fashioned talk therapy, because nothing else matches the healing power of a trusting, intimate relationship with another human being.
If you’ve come to a roadblock on your path - anxiety, depression, confusion, PTSD – I’m confident we can get you moving forward again.
