My name is Cheryl Buss and I have over 25 years of post graduate experience in mental health counseling. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology from Eastern Illinois University and my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. I was born and raised in Illinois before moving to Florida in 2004. 

My experience has been gained in a variety of settings including various hospital inpatient departments, child welfare, Easter Seals, hospice, private practice, and community behavioral health. 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Florida, and I am very excited to be joining Tampa Bay Psychiatric Services as a therapist because  My role as a therapist is to carefully listen to you and to use that information to act as a "professional guide" to assist you in finding the solutions that will work best for you.

Therapy involves a commitment of time, honesty, and hard work. I utilize variety of therapeutic methods individualized to meet each client's needs.
