CHANGING YOU, CHANGES EVERYTHING
Changing the Face of PTSD
If you are a survivor of domestic violence and h ave struggled to move out of the reactionary mode induced by your trauma into the action of self-creating a healthy, happy life, you have come to the right place. Cherie Doyen is a PTSD change agent who offers tangible tools and personalized strategies to diffuse emotion around trauma and begin the process of rebuilding one’s life to not just survive, but truly thrive.
Cherie’s approach is arguably unprecedented. Why? Powerfully intuitive, she identifies and helps the client excavate long-held wounds, emotions, fears and memories that may have been previously difficult or impossible to access. A fierce and fearless warrior of the light, Cherie’s unique process:
cleans up the trauma survivor’s timeline to release trapped emotions and information induced by trauma.
reintegrates the scattered pieces created through disassociation back into wholeness.
clears all shadows, breaks unhealthy patterns and gives practical tools to finally free oneself from emotional pain.
Changing the System to Protect Mothers and Their Children
A fierce advocate for mother-child rights, Cherie speaks out in support of creating alternatives to the current system around domestic violence, women and children’s rights, the world of foster care, and the constant separation of the family—specifically, mothers from their children. She is a social activist who sheds light on the dark spaces that are typically shied away from and not spoken about. Cherie’s many formats for doing so include her public access TV show, nAkid trUth.
Helping YOU to Change, From the Inside Out
Cherie Doyen is a relentlessly passionate advocate for children (small and grown) who have been subjected to physical, sexual and emotional abuse, as well as for the prevention of domestic and child abuse by educating children on how to get help. Her goal is to help survivors reclaim their power and rebuild their families.

Cherie Doyen has helped me when no one or nothing else could. I don’t know how to describe an interaction with an Angel, because that is what she is. She can see into your heart and give you the right dose of understanding; humility, courage, help or healing that is needed in the moment. She will give the credit to God but she’s a very special person. I’m eternally grateful our paths crossed and so very grateful to Cherie for all of her help. I am very, very happy to write this recommendation. I love her and you will too.
I have known Cherie Doyen for nearly 15 years. I knew her to be a caring and compassionate person who offered good advice to her clients. We saw the devastating impact of the memories of abusive childhood. But then watched in awe as she pushed herself to become healthy and whole again.
Nearly 12 years ago years my son was killed in car crash. My family held together through our love for one another and our desire to get through it. But eventually the strain of loss and grief catches up in ways you do not anticipate; you hold on too tight, control too much, and are inherently fearful of when the next shoe will drop. My daughter suffered the most. As she grew into an adult, we started battling our way through very tough times. Cherie said to me, you have to get healthy first, before you can help her, you have to help yourself. Once you are strong and healthy again everything will begin to fall into place once more. I worked with Cherie weekly to learn to open myself up to the possibilities of my life, and to trust myself, my faith, and my love of my family enough to stop hanging on so tight, and to learn to discern what is important. I have quit trying to control my daughter. Today nearly 2 years later, she daughter is doing wonderful. She is strong, beautiful, and making the right choices in her life. I continue to do too much, but am aware of what is causing my stress. The most important skill I have learned is to discern the path I am to be taking and to stop and embrace the joy of living and loving. Lisa
Cherie’s own life is a testimony to her motivation, determination, and healing power. I knew her while she still carried her childhood sorrows, and when she started seeking healing through meditation, intuition, and other spiritual practices, the transformation in her was profound. You could feel the light and joy around her, as she grew into her sacred purpose. My own life is divided like a book into two parts, and Cherie is the stitching seam that divides those parts: Part I: BEFORE I met Cherie. Part II: AFTER I met Cherie. To know Cherie is to be transformed by her. She taught me to meditate; to take responsibility for my own happiness and that of my children; to face the truth, even if it is ugly; to live in truth and authenticity, instead of pleasing or “face-flipping in order to survive; to risk rejection if that is the consequence for being real; and best of all: how to BE A MOM who honors, respects, listens to, and guides her children into their destiny. My family was torn apart by alcoholism and many other wounds. We were a mess. Cherie transformed me and my relationship with my children, who now know their worth, are also taking responsibility for their lives, and who…laugh and play again. I love her and consider her my spiritual mom, and I will forever be grateful for the difference she has made in my life. Barb
My daughter was having issues with anxiety and some obsessive compulsive behaviors that expressed itself in lowered self esteem, worry about what others think about her, with some obsessive behaviors related toward social media communications. Cherie met with her (me observing) a couple times and was able to break down the “jail” barriers that she had set up around her, freeing her from her anxiety and obsessiveness related to poor self esteem and worry over what others think. Since then she has encountered stressful time related to girl relationships, boy relationships, school work, and parental relationships and has had noticeably decreased anxiety and obsessive behaviors since then to what would be normally expected in an adolescent. Very helpful and effective. Jessica
Cherie has taught me how to truly be my own best friend by self knowledge/awareness and empowerment to access and use the energy available to and through me in ways that were once blocked by my former ways of thought (perception) and choices. I now utilize these tools to maintain my own peace so I can now exercise my skills and abilities to serve others and do the things I am passionate about with the most power possible for where I am at today in my development. I have literally learned how to change the way I think, speak, and what I focus on which has in turn changed my life for the better. And that is an understatement. I have an inner contentment that is also now outer as well. I am happy. Challenges do not stop in life however when we tap into the source available to us all we can truly have and do what we want in this life and it starts with us… the woman with the thoughts words and actions. The woman choosing her reality.
…..I recorded several of my sessions with her and relistening a few times and this assisted me in gaining the most from them and remembering the realizations I came to and the methods of “self maintenance” so to speak that are at my disposal. Her way is not outside in or her telling you what to do. No. She helps you by your own volition to mine the gems (gifts and true self) within yourself and bring them to the table of life to shine and be able to serve their purpose. Amber
My time with Cherie individually and with Women Rising has been one of the best things that I have ever done for myself . I am so grateful to have found a person that is open, loving, trustworthy, and supportive. Cherie has put together a group of women that can connect, love and support each other and give each other a safe space to be once a week. I have found the best meditation, openness, laughter, and healing with Cherie by my side and couldn’t be more pleased. Immediate ly after joining Cherie, I brought my family members and they loved Cherie and had the immediate belonging that I did. Whether it be talking about family, relationships or just life, I went to Cherie when nobody else would’ve been there. The days that work seemed to be too much, I went to Cherie (a hairstylist with years of experience) and always came out feeling better. When my puppy was just out of the hospital she came to my house to make sure we were both ok. She sent prayers to my family and I in our times of loss, and celebrated my success. I have always texted Cherie for advice, and support and gotten nothing less than 100%. This is a woman who gives her energy and love willingly and fully and I would 200% recommend getting to know her, I am sure glad I did. Morgan
When I came to Cherie, I was in major need for support and guidance. She provided me with that, plus so much more. She guided me out of the darkness and into a space where I was able to learn how to guide myself. Cherie has a magical ability to advise and guide while simultaneously stepping back and allowing space to explore. I believe this is a special and crucial mentality to experience when working on healing and growing. Working with Cherie is healing, transformative, deeply loving and very well crafted. I recommend it to anyone who is ready to take the leap into thriving in life, and not just surviving it. Sara
Making the decision to work with Cherie has not only transformed me individually but my family as well. Struggling through a divorce that was unexpected brought me to a debilitating place personally. As a mother I understood that healing myself would help my children. After many counselors, I took a leap of faith and decided on Cherie as my Life Coach. That was a decision that I am grateful for today. The journey has been filled with insights and lessons that I will continue to use. As witnesses of my transformation, my extended family decided to walk the same path. Today, I am incredibly blessed to have taken that first jump. It is true what she says….. Changing you does change everything.
