Our attitude, nearly always, determines our altitude in life...dare to soar!
- I established Flying Solo Counseling in Windham, Maine, in 1999, and offer hope, help and healing for women and men, age 18 and older. I have been a Licensed Pastoral Counselor (LPasC) in Maine since 1992, bringing a diverse faith background and professional training to help with emotional, psychological and/or faith issues (when relevant). That being said, faith issues remain the agenda of each client and need not be part of our work together unless presented by the client.
- My practice is a judgement-free zone, with compassion for each client's struggles. My clients include those of great faith, little faith, lost faith or no specific faith....all are welcome!
- I have earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University (1980) and a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard University Divinity School (1984). I continue professional education in an effort to offer my clients the best, most up-to-date treatment options.
- * Confidential, compassionate, problem-solving approach
- * Each client is encouraged to set the agenda for each session so your issues are the focus of our time. Sessions are 45-50 minutes in length, with a commitment to begin and end on time.
- Counseling sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays
- NO INSURANCE IS REQUIRED: private pay is accepted, fee negotiable, with special fee reduction during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please inquire!
- In addition, the following insurances are accepted, with applicable copay, deductibles and other limitations:
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Harvard Pilgrim
- Magellan EAP
- Martin's Point
- United HealthCare
- Credit, debit and HSA cards accepted.
- (As a licensed pastoral counselor, I deeply regret that I am unable to accept MaineCare, TriCare or Medicare, due to federal and state licensing limitations; however, some church members may be able to secure funding from their pastors or congregational groups)
- Please note: To protect the privacy of clients (past, current and future), I do not participate in any social media.
- Please phone/text Cheryl at (207) 892-SOLO (7656)
- or email WeFlySolo@me.com
Where we begin:
"Hope, help and healing are the goals at Flying Solo. I believe that, for many of us, it may take a great deal of courage to reach out for help, and I deeply appreciate how difficult it may be to take that first step.
Our goal is resolve whatever is troubling you,
as quickly as possible.
I feel truly humbled to be invited to share the pain, sadness and anger--the full range of feelings---as I work alongside individuals to find solutions to the concerns, problems or issues brought to our sessions." Cheryl Klein, M. Div., LPasC
We live in challenging times. Some of us have developed anxiety and/or depression over the past months, as a response to the impact of COVID-19 and its implications for our social, work and family connections. Others of us may have a history of anxiety or depression which has grown deeper facing these or other challenges. Either way, there may be remedies you haven't yet tried, examination of the causes of these feelings from a new perspective. I'd be humbled and honored to see how I might be most helpful to you in the issues you're facing, whether they are recent or more long-term.
Specializing in women's issues
Women often find themselves under a great deal of stress, attempting to manage spouses, children, care of home and pets, and other work outside the home. This may result in anger, frustration, and a feeling of powerlessness, as well as exhaustion (physical, emotional). Let's look at the issues you're facing and find options for decreasing stress, increasing energy, and taking good care of yourself.
We've all had to make decisions about relationships at home, at work, and in our social connections. There are two issues which most often seem to come up when there are problems: the need to set clear, healthy boundaries (without feeling guilty) and the ability to communicate clearly what we want and need from others. There are many strategies that can help make changes in these areas, and I'm glad to share what I know and have learned about the best ways to have happy, healthy relationships with family, friends and co-workers.
When you're ready, here's how to get started.....
When you contact me (by text, voice mail or email), my first questions to you will be regarding what insurance you're planning to use (if any) and what your availability for sessions might be. I am covered by most insurance but not all (see above). I will let you know what might be available, and if you let me know that it looks like the day/time will work on an every-week basis, I will then email you the Informed Consent and New Client Registration forms to complete and return within 4 days (by email or text message). If there are questions or information you're not comfortable with providing by these electronic means, we can take care of this during the first session. When the time for your session comes, you'll be contacting me at my phone (207) 892-7656, whether phone or Facetime. I'll want to hear what's most important for you, at each session, and listen carefully, so I can provide you with support, strategies, tools to help. We'll work together on a one-session-at-a-time basis, at the same time each week, which seems to work best for counseling clients. I'm always glad to hear and answer your questions and concerns about my training, background or any other aspect of our work. I am both humbled and grateful to be invited on the life journeys of my clients. Having worked on three hotlines before establishing my own private practice, I am well-versed in working effectively telehealth sessions.
