Sherilyn Lacy, LPC-MHSP and certified EMDR therapist, completed her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling in September, 2013 at Southern Adventist University. She has experience counseling people struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, grief, marital and family conflict, post-traumatic stress, and other issues. Sherilyn’s special interest is engaging people’s hearts in their own healing journey and encouraging them to practice compassion toward themselves and others. She says, “A lot of the emotional pain I experienced in my own life before beginning my healing journey was because I didn’t know how to treat myself compassionately.” Sherilyn offers individual therapy for adults. The foundation of her approach to counseling is a belief in a loving, present, and powerful God. The counseling theory she most incorporates in her counseling approach is the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Theory, the theory upon which Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is based. Sherilyn completed her EMDR Therapy training in March, 2016. She integrates elements of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, client-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory, family systems theory, and other theories in her counseling. She currently practices at Collegedale Church of Seventh-day Adventists Counseling Center and at Center for EMDR Therapy in Chattanooga.
