About·Garden Gate Counseling


Cheryl Trenwith, LMFT:  with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, I have been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist for over 15 years. I have extensive training and experience with a variety of effective healing and therapeutic models of counseling and coaching to help individuals, couples and families become the change they are seeking in their lives and relationships. Our work together will focus on helping you find solutions rather than focusing on symptoms or problems.


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.  ~ Helen Keller
