Cheryl Pace, M.A., L.P.C.

Cheryl Pace joined Connell & Associates in 2017 after returning from Ecuador.

Cheryl and her black Russian terrier, Anastasia, have done quite a bit of traveling together, including a two-year stint in Cotacachi, Ecuador, where Cheryl worked for a philanthropy group that helps countries struggling with animal overpopulation issues.

While in Ecuador, she grew to love a simplistic lifestyle, and carried that methodology home with her. One of her role models is Bert Hellinger, a priest who went to Africa to tame the Zulu people, and was tamed himself.

Cheryl applies his psychology theories, known as Family Constellations and Systemic Constellations, to her counseling practices. She combines Family Systems Therapy with Cognitive-behavioral therapy.

“I don’t like to assume things,” she said. “I just do a lot of listening.”

Cheryl became licenses in professional counseling in 1995 after experiencing the benefits of counseling in her own life. After dealing with the aftermath of her parents’ separation, counseling helped her to understand how to avoid patterns of trauma and substance abuse.

“I was so amazed,” she said. “I thought my counselor was magical.”

Cheryl attained her undergraduate degree from University of Texas in Dallas and received a masters degree in clinical and counseling psychology at Southern Methodist University.

Cheryl is a mother to three sons and a grandmother to three. When she’s not working, she likes gardening, and has previously been an avid diver, snow and water skier, and skydiver.

    TESTIMONIALS

    Awesome clinicians working here. I was able to get my child's diagnosis so I can get him services. Early diagnosis is the the key. My son is autistic and has ADHD as well as other health issues. Kisd was able to get my son the services he needed based on his diagnosis he received at this office. My son is now 6 and has made a 200 percent improvement due to reviewing intervention early on.

    Dr. Connell was very easy to talk to. He listen to all of my concerns and addressed them. Him and his staff made me feel comfortable. I have been waiting for over a year for a appointment at scott and white. As soon as I called his office I received a appointment right away.

    Dr. Connell's office has been professional and courteous. My husband and I like how well he listens to our concerns and how we explain ourselves about our daughter. We are hopeful on this new path with his help with our daughter.

    Doctor Connell and his staff went out of their way to assist my daughter and I with the process of obtaining a diagnosis (report) and submitting referrals for the care she needed. This was an acutely difficult period for both she and I, as it was her first diagnosis and testing experience. All around they were patient, kind, thorough and efficient. Highly Recommended!

    When you walk into the office you are welcomed right away. You don't have to wait.for someone. It doesn't have the feeling of most Dr.'s offices. It has a relaxing feel which is important for the children.
