About Me

Let me introduce myself, I'm Roxanne Cherry. Marriage, Family and Child Therapist. I’m committed to helping couples in relationship, adolescents, children and families resolve problems and improve communication.

By asking key questions I help clients gain insight. While focusing on your strengths, I coach, guide, and advocate for you and your best interest. You’ll learn how to navigate through common issues including anxiety, depression, anger, grief and addiction. Whether your current challenges are short or long term, together we will address issues including communication, intimacy, sexuality, gender identity, workplace, financial or learning difficulties.

Clients with special needs including those related to Transgender issues are a focus of my practice. Other areas of focus include group work with parents, women, children, the LGBT community and members of a 12-Step Recovery Group including Orange County AA.

Most times counseling takes place in my office, other times by in-home counseling, video chat, or phone. Please feel free to call with any inquiry.
