DNUSD Parent Webinar - October 20th @ 6:00 PM

Cheryl Simons, MA, MFT is a California-licensed marriage, family, and child therapist who has maintained a private psychotherapy practice in Crescent City, California for the past 25 years.  Cheryl began her career with a focus on Jungian therapy and a passion for working with children and families.  Her discovery of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in 1998, added to a growing realization that having the ability to work with one’s emotions was a key to a good life and to good mental health.  DBT’s “skills deficit” model, which posits that, at the root of many mental health issues, is a simple lack of skills, helped Cheryl more clearly conceptualize and articulate her own thinking developed through years of experience.  Using the DBT model, Cheryl created and led Emotion Education Groups for boys aged 6 – 12 years.  Many of the techniques Cheryl teaches were tested and developed during these groups.  Cheryl has given talks on various topics in the field of psychotherapy for 18 years and on Emotion Education since 2009.
