Cheryl Korb O’Connell is a professional counselor whose shortcomings motivated her to learn about the inner workings of our hearts and minds. She pursued her studies as a direct result of coming to terms with the pain of her past.
Cheryl was a churchgoing believer when the unplanned pregnancy occurred. Shocked by her own reaction, she breezed through the decision and the abortion with very little reflection. In the short term it appeared to have been a great decision as her life continued on track.
Cheryl now works to help her clients deal with individual and family issues. When dealing with those who have experienced abortion, her healing as well as her training has helped her see the need to address common issues:
- Denial-how to break through to yourself
- Spiritual vs emotional needs
- The value of sharing your story in a safe space
- Identifying grief as separate from guilt
