Hi! I’m Cheryl Tarnofsky and I’m so glad you’re here.
I help women rediscover what it’s like to have fulfilled and meaningful lives.
Perhaps you’re struggling with a recent traumatic incident or want to explore and process issues related to relationships, self-esteem, work or school.
I meet my clients where they are at – we’ll go at your own pace and work collaboratively on what you want to accomplish.
Together we can work to ensure that your voice is heard and supported, even in the midst of depression, anxiety, and stress.
I’m happy to provide the opportunity for us to utilize art therapy in a safe, contained environment. We’ll be able to dive deep using creative expression when words aren’t enough. I believe that therapy doesn’t have to be super serious all the time and art is a great vehicle to let loose and have fun!
While what we do in therapy will be unique to every individual, I tend to draw from a combination of mindfulness, art therapy, and DBT/CBT (Dialectical/Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
A few more details about me:
I hold a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy with a specialization in Clinical Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University.
Prior to going into private practice, for many years I worked with adolescents who suffered complex trauma, and adults in outpatient and inpatient settings who struggled with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders (i.e., depression, anxiety, PTSD, and personality disorders).
In my free time, I’m weaving on my loom at home, hanging out with my two cats, or training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
