Dr. Cheryl Mansfield

(PhD, LCSW, CSAC)

About Me

Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Virginia with 20 plus years of experience working with couples, families, and individuals experiencing a range of complex issues. Life can be difficult and every so often things do not go as they should. So, when times get hard many people reach out to a therapist to get some much-needed support. My aim is to provide wise, biblical, loving, and faithful counsel. God remains the focus and an important goal is to assist you to grow a rich and accurate view of God specific to your life’s circumstances utilizing spiritual resources of faith, prayer, and worship. I am a practicing Christian who believes that God's Word is sufficient to counsel for all of life's issues (2 Pet. 1:2-4; Heb. 4:12; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
My counseling style is welcoming, straightforward, and collaborative. My goal is to create a safe and confidential therapeutic environment in order to build trust, honesty and understanding. It is also particularly important that my clients feel part of the process by participating in identifying specific concerns and creating a treatment plan that works for them. So, our sessions and your treatment plan will be based on your individualized needs.
Successful treatment outcomes often depend on a combination of approaches to resolve problems; therefore, I use a variety of evidence- based approaches aimed at giving my clients efficient, long-standing relief. I emphasize a strength-based perspective while providing therapeutic services utilizing a holistic, eclectic approach that includes techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, and solution-focused therapy. I am committed to working with individuals to successfully overcome their specific life challenges that led them to seek out therapeutic services. I am passionate about working with people and strive to offer a warm, welcoming environment that allows them the ability to relax while sharing their thoughts and feelings. Most of all the emphasis is on providing a positive, safe, supportive and confidential environment for both individuals in the session.
I genuinely appreciate you reaching out for help. I look forward to being given the opportunity to work with you and to discover how to best assist you. Have a wonderful day!
