Sheri Blue, LCSW, CADC I
Accepting, nonjudgmental, and warm, Sheri Blue uses a collaborative, strengths-based approach with her clients so they feel safe to share their thoughts and feelings. Sheri believes that by helping clients identify old beliefs and patterns, they are able to have more choice in their lives. She encourages those with whom she works to target and implement changes that will aid them in breaking old habits and creating the life they want to live.
Her work draws from psychodynamic theory, motivational interviewing, stages of change theory, and mindful experiential therapies. She continues to study Hakomi and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). A longtime member of Hawthorne Wellness Center, she collaborates with practitioners in other modalities and, when needed, refers clients for alternative and traditional care.
Sheri’s clients seek her support in addressing anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, and in responding to significant life changes. She is also experienced in treating the trauma of motor vehicle accidents.
Sheri graduated from Portland State University and is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). She has earned certificates in both alcohol and drug counseling (CADC I) and in gerontology. Sheri is also a licensed massage therapist. More information about her massage practice can be found at the Hawthorne Wellness Center massage page. Additional information about her counseling practice can be found at sheriblue.com.
When not working with clients, Sheri keeps busy with her friends, her family, and her home. She has a bachelor’s degree in literature and likes to read, write, knit, and work out.
