Cheryl Kack

My name is Cheryl Kack MSW. LICSW.  LADC. , the owner and operator of Stepping Stones Counseling. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Licensed in Minnesota and Iowa. License # 117250.

The relationship that is established is the most important aspect of therapy as it is the foundation from which change begins to occur. I provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment where you can feel comfortable and safe in order to explore and share your concerns. My style in therapy is compassionate, warm and interpersonal but direct to help you find solutions that work for you. When individuals come to me for therapy they are trusting in my knowledge and abilities to help with the process of change by sharing their inner most thoughts and feelings, and I hold that with upmost respect. My philosophical orientation is to empower by helping you acknowledge and identify your own internal resources and self- awareness to resolve your difficulties and struggles.

As a therapist, my specialties address relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, PTSD, alcohol and/or drug addictions and more. Each individual’s treatment is specifically tailored to meet his/her needs and goals using effective evidence based approaches. I work with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.

I am dedicated in providing a high quality and therapeutic experience. Whether you are struggling with mental health and/or substance use issues, I welcome you to find out how I can help you become a happier and healthier person.

I value offering a safe, supportive, inclusive space for when you instinctively feel exploring change is important. Together we will increase your resiliency, explore the relationships and experiences you want in life, building on your unique personality and strengths to achieve what you most desire. I have 20 years of experience working with people with various needs. I offer a range of approaches to assist you in moving through challenging life conditions towards finding more ease in life. I focus on relationship difficulties, life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, addictions and helping you integrate spirituality. I also offer brainspotting as a mind/body based approach to release what’s held in the body impacting mood, stress level and performance along with brining inner resources forward to support a higher quality of living.

I specialize in mind-body connection, mindfulness, Buddhist psychology, health realization and energy psychology approaches to therapy. I welcome all populations and, as a clinical social worker, place emphasis on incorporating social justice into my practice.

I am passionate about serving the LGBTQIP2SA community. I am also dedicated to working with clinicians and healers to process their personal healing journey and craft a personal practice to support the highest level of wellness and outcomes in all aspects of life.

Life can sometimes take control of us, bringing us down, making us feel undervalued as a person: Our emotions, our thinking, our personal and professional relationships, our physical health, and our faith/spirituality may be struggling to stay afloat. Well, relief is here!

While walking with you on your journey of healing, my treatment and care will transform you, move you toward emotional freedom, positive thinking, relationship stability, physical wellness, and growth in spirituality. As a team, we can do this thing called life together: I welcome you with kindness, a listening ear and a smile. I look forward to meeting you!

Your treatment plan is uniquely created for you and only you! I am skilled in Mindful Practice, Attachment Theory, Psychoanalytic Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, CBT, DBT-informed Therapy, Strengths-Focused Theory, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
