Cheri Skavlem, MSW, LICSW

Crisis Services Manager

Location: Crisis Stabilization Unit
\”I have a passion to empower individuals and families to overcome obstacles using a holistic and client-centered approach to instill hope that people can learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs and attitudes, and experience positive change. I have practiced in a variety of outpatient settings with over 20 years of experience working primarily with children, adolescents and families. I see children in the school setting providing diagnostic services and offering treatment recommendations. I provide family-based prevention and intervention therapeutic services and address complex and multidimensional problems using a client-centered and culturally sensitive approach. I believe in a strengths-based approach that is holistic, eclectic and guided by the individual needs of the client.”
