Cheryl Rutherford is a native Texan and is married with a blended family including three children ages 24, 32, and 41 as well as five grandchildren. A lot of the experience she brings to the counseling relationship has been earned through tough personal challenges and choices and the restoring work of Jesus Christ and His Word, as well as working the past 15 years with individuals of all ages over 8, married couples in crisis or in marriage preparation, and families blended or otherwise. Her private practice is on Main Street in Grapevine, Texas.
Cheryl loves to work with individuals who are stuck in some area of their lives. Toxic thinking, cycles and behaviors can detour most people from enjoying the best life possible and processing what those roadblocks may be and working through them is a powerful key to unlocking potential in relationships with God, self and others. Her heart is for married people struggling in their relationships. Blending families is one of the toughest challenges of our times and there are some great helps for this challenge that many of us face. Family of origin issues sometimes set us up for triggering negativity in many areas that keep us from being free to love and live well with the person we have chosen to do life with. In just a few visits, doing some intentional homework, insight begins to help us understand where the challenges really come from and what those roots are that need to be addressed.
