Hi, I'm Cheryl Klein. Welcome to FLYING SOLO Counseling, offering adult women and men telehealth counseling sessions by phone and/or video (your choice!) using your phone, tablet or laptop. There's no need to face life's struggles alone: confidential, compassionate help is available. Cheryl Klein, M.

Our attitude, nearly always, determines our altitude in life...dare to soar!
- Cheryl Klein established Flying Solo Counseling in Windham, Maine, in 1999, and offers services for women and men, age 18 and older. She has been a Licensed Pastoral Counselor (LPasC) since 1992, bringing a diverse faith background and professional training to help with emotional, psychological and/or faith issues (when relevant). That being said, faith issues remain the agenda of each client and need not be part of our work together unless presented by the client.
- Her practice is a judgement-free zone, and her clients include those of great faith, little faith, lost faith or no specific faith....all are welcome!
- Cheryl has earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University (1980) and a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard University Divinity School (1984). She continues professional education in an effort to offer her clients the best, most up-to-date treatment options.
- * Confidential, compassionate, problem-solving approach
- * Each client is encouraged to set the agenda for each session so your issues are the focus of our time. Sessions are 45-50 minutes in length, with a commitment to begin and end on time.
- Counseling sessions hours: 9:15-6 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays
- NO INSURANCE IS REQUIRED: private pay is accepted, fee negotiable, with special fee reduction during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please inquire!

Where we begin:
"Hope, help and healing are the goals at Flying Solo. I believe that, for many of us, it may take a great deal of courage to reach out for help, and I deeply appreciate how difficult it may be to take that first step.
Our goal is resolve whatever is troubling you,
as quickly as possible.
I feel truly humbled to be invited to share the pain, sadness and anger--the full range of feelings---as I work alongside individuals to find solutions to the concerns, problems or issues brought to our sessions." Cheryl Klein, M. Div., LPasC
We live in challenging times. Some of us have developed anxiety and/or depression over the past months, as a response to the impact of COVID-19 and its implications for our social, work and family connections. Others of us may have a history of anxiety or depression which has grown deeper facing these or other challenges. Either way, there may be remedies you haven't yet tried, examination of the causes of these feelings from a new perspective. I'd be humbled and honored to see how I might be most helpful to you in the issues you're facing, whether they are recent or more long-term.
Specializing in women's issues
Women often find themselves under a great deal of stress, attempting to manage spouses, children, care of home and pets, and other work outside the home. This may result in anger, frustration, and a feeling of powerlessness, as well as exhaustion (physical, emotional). Let's look at the issues you're facing and find options for decreasing stress, increasing energy, and taking good care of yourself.
We've all had to make decisions about relationships at home, at work, and in our social connections. There are two issues which most often seem to come up when there are problems: the need to set clear, healthy boundaries (without feeling guilty) and the ability to communicate clearly what we want and need from others. There are many strategies that can help make changes in these areas, and I'm glad to share what I know and have learned about the best ways to have happy, healthy relationships with family, friends and co-workers.
Many of us find ourselves differing in opinions, ideas, and behaviors in our immediate and extended families. This may pose some unique challenges as upcoming family events occur, requiring us to consider alternative plans or celebrations. With the COVID-19 pandemic weighing heavily on all of us, and the questions of staying safe, let's talk about what might work best for you and your loved ones.
