Sheri Bessi Eckert – Counselor


Welcome, and thank you are taking a minute to learn more about me and the scope of services I provide. Please note that this is an overview and if you don’t see what you are looking for, don’t worry, together we can come up with something that best suits your particular situation.

The Other Side of Ugly is my own story of healing and personal growth. From it, Dear Human – Letters to Humanity, was birthed. Innerwork, a private counseling practice, coaching services, and a Domestic Violence Batterers Intervention Program is how I offer my services to the community and the world at large.

My approach to mental and spiritual well being is based on mindfulness and positive psychology. I am of the mindset that one can heal the hurt by shedding light on personal misconceptions of self and community, understanding how belief systems are adopted through cultural and familial exchanges and the impact they make on your daily decisions, and most importantly, realizing ones personal innate identity. With these insights humanity seems a little better and life is much easier to navigate.

Currently my practice is located in Portland, Oregon. I do however offer individual and couples counseling sessions via Skype. My services are focused on self-observation, the art of mindfulness, and healthy communication. A journey inward produces a much more meaningful external outcome.

My mission is to inspire awareness, healing, and growth through a variety of channels, such as innovative methods drawn from existential, humanistic, psycho spiritual, cognitive-behavioral, and eastern traditions. I see beauty and complexity in each individual and am motivated to facilitate the ease of your growth process.

Coaching and Counseling Services – Counseling and therapeutic services differ slightly in focus from coaching. While counseling and therapy emphasize healing, coaching can include healing but is more oriented toward strategy and achievement. Collaborative coaching sessions emphasize personal skills, strengths, and resources in support of attaining your desired goals. Whether your objectives are for personal or professional development and well-being, coaching services aim to clarify an individualized “practice” that facilitates confidence, courage, wisdom, and success.

My interest is in working with anyone who desires self-understanding, personal growth, healthy relationships, and effective engagement in the community. Whether you are experiencing emotional challenges, navigating a big change, or simply wanting to improve your habits and overall outlook, it would be my honor to help you achieve an effective state of mind.

Services can be provided in person, via Skype or using FaceTime. Please contact me at 858.337.5709 to schedule your free 15 minute consultation.
