Cheryl Underwood, MA

St. Simons Island and Kingsland Locations


Cheryl enjoys working with individuals and married couples whom need a more cognitive behavior approach. Using empathy and their belief system together to define the core issues Cheryl and her clients set goals. By altering behaviors to achieve a sense of well-being and emotional health the client begins to have a sense of peace. Everyone wants to live rich meaningful lives yet there are challenges in life that can be difficult to manage alone. Losing hope of obtaining a resolution defines a moment when a professional therapist like herself can be helpful. Attending therapy in a safe, inviting, and non-judgmental session creates the trust clients require for a positive experience.

Cheryl’s goal is to help her clients resource their strengths for a healthy fulfilling life ahead in a trusting environment.

As a native Georgian, Cheryl completed her master’s degree from LaGrange College. Cheryl’s work in mental health includes working with severe diagnoses, drug addiction, and couples counseling.

Her favorite work is private practice, which combines all of her life’s experiences and education to assist clients in revealing and healing their best self. Prior to mental health, Cheryl’s background included owning a business, working in education, and most importantly raising three well-adjusted young professional adults. She loves pets and utilizes a therapy dog, Emma.
