Welcome to Tranquil Waters Counseling – Serving all of WNY

When life presents us with challenges and unexpected turns, we are given options for an opportunity for change; to not allow them to define our present or our future.

Many of us face difficult situations that can get in the way of a full, satisfying life. Each individual has the strength within to grow and find a healthy balance. Sometimes, we need a little extra guidance to see that life’s challenges can be transformed into healing opportunities.

Therapy can offer a breath of hope to those who feel lost, stuck and alone.

Client Testimonials

Ashley M.

“I have been working with Cheri for a little over three years and we have made so much progress mentally and emotionally. She always makes herself available for me when I need her most. We have made so many strides with my past family trauma and are working towards learning coping skills for the future. She is always open to trying new methods and approaches to best suit me personally. I am forever thankful to have her as a resource in my life. “

Tracy S.

“First of all, I would like to thank Penny for all she has done for me. I am so grateful for her guidance, kindness, comfort, and compassion. I have been seeing Penny for quite some time now regarding several issues that needed to be addressed, including anxiety, panic attacks, the loss of my Mother, and everyday issues. Penny goes above and beyond to listen and directs me in the right direction. After seeking out several other counselors, four to be exact I was not satisfied with the outcome from any of them. On my first visit, I was greeted with a huge smile like we had known each other for years. I knew right then and there we were a match. It’s so relaxing, and comfortable to talk with her. She truly has been an inspiration in my life. Your dedication to the field you work in is absolutely amazing!”

Sarah P.

“After the traumatic loss of my mom years ago, I began going to Cheri to help me primarily with grief counseling. She helped me so much with that and the changing seasons in my life that I have continued to stay in counseling with her.
Her kindness, compassion, comfort, and experience are just a few of the many reasons I continue to see her and why I have recommended her to countless family members and friends, as well as patients in my own practice.
Feeling supported and cared for in my mental health journey by Cheri has meant the world to me and I am so fortunate to say she truly has helped me become the best version of myself.”

Steve H.

“I had trouble finding a therapist to take on my anxiety, OCD, depression, and anger/antisocial issues. Cheri at Tranquil Waters has given me my life back. She has helped me face and overcome these issues plus the effects of several rough life events. Cheri has helped me rebuild my self-esteem, curb my temper, face my anxiety and develop the skills I need to face adversity. I’ll always be a work in progress, but Cheri has made such a difference for me that my wife (also a therapist) recommends Tranquil Waters to her own friends.”
