Thank you for your interest in exploring the opportunities that counseling has to offer. As a professional counselor, I consider it my calling to assist individuals in finding or regaining the tools necessary to function independently again. I believe that our behavior, emotions, and thoughts are all intertwined, but that we are largely guided by our perceptions of ourselves, others, and our world. I also believe in a holistic approach to growth and healing that takes into consideration our relationships, social and cultural issues, our physical state, and our spirituality.
I have experience working with substance abuse disorders, depression, anxiety, intensive outpatient, pediatric and adult inpatient, dual diagnosis, grief and loss, crisis, self harm, and trauma. I provide services for children, teens and adults.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with the State of Michigan. I graduated from Spring Arbor University with my Masters of Counseling Degree. In 2017, I received certificates and speciality training in trauma at TLC National Institute of Trauma and Loss.

Larena Cherry MA LLPC NCC
There are times that we are so inside a problem that we can’t see beyond it (think the “can’t see the forest for the trees” metaphor). I can help you navigate the forest and the trees to identify the problem, figure out your goals, and create a plan of action. None of this means we’re not functioning or getting through the day. You probably are. But do you feel enriched by your life? Happy with your choices? Do you find enjoyment in your life? Are you inspired to achieve your dreams?
My focus is always the client in our sessions. I strive to provide an open and nonjudgmental environment that is safe to explore uncomfortable thoughts and fears. I mainly use a mix of cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapy, and solution focused therapy to address your particular concerns.
Let me help you find solutions to problems in a supportive environment.
