Thanks for working here this week: Cheryl Trembath, LPC, Behavioral Health Services

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Allow us to introduce Cheryl Trembath, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and the Lead Therapist at Behavioral Health Services in Gillette, Wyoming. For those who do not know, BHS provides treatment and counseling of behavioral disorders, mental illness and substance abuse treatment following detox. For patients who may be experiencing severe episodes of mental illness, CCH offers an eight-bed inpatient adult and adolescent unit to provide monitored care.

Cheryl earned her master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minn, and her bachelors’ degrees in psychology and criminal justice from the University of Wyoming; she became an LPC in Wyoming in 2019. She has a certificate in addictions, is trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), as well as equine therapy. Before working for CCH, Cheryl worked as a juvenile probation officer for 10 years, and a year in child protection services. She joined CCH in 2020 after working for a year in the women’s prison as a mental health provider.

Cheryl is working in healthcare because a friend who she worked worked with at the Department of Family Services encouraged her to go back to school to get her master's degree.

“I love being a therapist. I love the fact that I get to walk a short distant with each one of my clients on their journey to a healthier life,” says Cheryl. “I know first-hand how much a good therapist can assist us on our journey to a healthier life style, and how important it is to have the right fit in order for us to heal and move forward on our journey in life. I enjoy working with all ages, however, I find trauma and substance abuse work most rewarding.”

Cheryl’s approach or philosophy on patient care is very simple, she says. “I am very person centered in my treatment. The client is the center of his or her therapy. They know themselves better than anyone else ever will,” she says. “To assist a client to become healthier is the best feeling ever.”

When Cheryl's not at work, she loves the outdoors, riding horses, spending time with her dogs and just hanging out with friends. “However, I also love to work on houses as well as drive trucks and run heavy equipment like backhoes and front-end loaders,” she says.

We asked Cheryl what she likes most about working for CCH. Check out her response:

“CCH is a great place to work. I had heard great things about CCH when I first moved to Gillette in 1996. Working here is a chance to give back to the community that I have grown to love. When it comes to what brings the most pride in my work is when I see the people I work with have those ‘ah ha’ moments.

One piece of advice for a therapy-seeker would be life is a journey and at times, we all need assistance on that journey. Do not be afraid to reach out and ask someone to walk with you on that journey no one has to do it alone.”

Thank you, Cheryl, for encouraging everyone to not be afraid to reach out and ask for help. We are proud to have you on our team.
