Cher Hamilton-Tekautz, LCSW

Cher is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who believes acceptance and compassion are key to finding healing. Her approach to therapy is relational and individualized to each client’s situation and needs.


She incorporates mindfulness and a body-based approach into her work with clients to teach them coping skills to manage stress, depression, and anxiety. Cher enjoys helping people with identity concerns, life/work balance, trauma, recovery, and chronic health conditions.


Cher completed her Master’s in Social Work from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. She has experience working with LGBTQ identified 18-25 year olds, older adult men, victims of sexual violence, and people with chronic health conditions. In addition, Cher recently completed a certification in yoga-informed psychotherapy through Live Oak.
Cher brings compassion, empathy, and authenticity to the therapeutic relationship so clients can have the space to be themselves and to reflect on and identify changes needed in their lives. She uses a collaborative strengths-based approach and believes change is possible when clients can develop acceptance and compassion for themselves.
