I am a Clinical Professional Counselor licensed in Nevada with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including coping skills, anger management, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, sexual issues, OCD, ADD/ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I started my career working with homeless veterans with trauma and addictions issues as well as children victims of severe sexual trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic solution-focused therapy and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Sotelo really listens and lets us work through the problem. She has helped give us tools to address issues in our marriage and set a great foundation from the get go about how we are going to handle things. We have a long way to go during counseling but I feel we have a great partner to help us through tough conversations.
She has guided us to making amazing improvements in our relationship.
Cheri has been both an incredible resource and counselor. She is attentive, caring, and knowledgeable on a variety of subjects. She has been an excellent aid for assisting in our communication struggles. I could not recommend her enough!
