Cherie Spellmen M.S. LMFT

“I am fearfully and wonderfully made” –Psalm 139:13-14. It’s incredible how God has created us and that we are remarkably made to heal ourselves! I seek to provide individualized therapy to every unique person, helping them find new ways to grow, change, and connect to themselves and others.

I hold licenses as a Marriage and Family therapist in the State of Texas and the State of Colorado. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University and bachelors in Mental Health from Franciscan University, where I also enjoyed studying Theology. I started my career work on a team with severe mental illness and substance abuse. I then worked at Catholic Charities for 4 years where I served multiple populations. My first focus of work was with women: women in crisis, pregnancy, post-abortion, and coordinated with pregnancy centers. I also worked in schools, working with children and teens for several years. I worked with adults in different therapeutic settings as well as with refugees. I also worked at the Archdiocese of Cincinnati as their Coordinator for Survivors of Sexual abuse for four years. I then moved to Denver and went into private practice, focusing on couples, individuals, teens and children. We have now expanded that practice to Texas. I now focus on the Dallas Fort Worth areas, while still helping Colorado clients through online therapy.

I utilize Brainspotting Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method, Play Therapy, acceptance therapy and mindfulness-based techniques to help my clients facilitate change. I also incorporate systemic and attachment based approaches. Utilizing these therapeutic methods, I have seen people rediscover themselves and improve their ability to fully engage in their lives. I believe and know that you can do the same.

I have realized that we all need more understanding, kindness, and acceptance in our lives. I long to support and inspire people to be more present, conscious, and intentional. We can move forward to a fully enlivened life by learning to intentionally stay connected to self, relationships, and community. It is very exciting and uplifting to see people heal, transform, and become fully alive again.

I can’t wait to meet you!
