Welcome to Theater Therapy

Welcome to my journey of blogging. My name is Sherry Coggin.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have had the privilege of counseling brave clients since 2000.  I am also the wife of an amazing man named Michael, who is a pastor and counselor. Together we have four kids, 3 boys and a little girl. Sometimes I am reminded that as a counselor I have a unique lens in which I view the world. Recently I went to the movies with my friend Mary. After the movie as I was giving my opinions and feedback of the movie, she said, “so this is what it is like to see a movie with a counselor.”

One of the reasons I love movies is because I believe they are a powerful cultural medium in which to discuss deeper issues.  My goal in this blog is to discuss the deeper themes I see in movies and relate them to my experience as a counselor. It will also be my excuse to take a break from mom duty and go to the movies 😄.
