About Cheryl Rich
Clinical Psychologist Specializing in Trauma Recovery.
“Pregnant at 11 yrs old.
Drug addictions to criminal convictions..to landing inside of entertainment as an Executive Producer.”
Hi! I am Cheryl!
When my mom found out she was pregnant with me, she paid for an abortion, but the Universe had a different set of plans for me. Two weeks later she realized the abortion failed. Although I was born, I was unwanted, unseen, broken, poverty stricken, and saw things no child should ever see or experience.
Struggling to be seen and loved, I got pregnant at 11 yrs old. I was a baby with a baby and had no real parental guidance to guide me through it. I resented my child and didn’t understand what was happening to me. I eventually turned to drugs which led me down a road of crime. At 25 landed in prison as a convicted felon for 4 years and 5 months. When I got out, I was finally ready to have a relationship with my son. By age 18 he fell into drinking and drugs. Unfortunately, 6 months and 17 days later, he was the cause of a fatal car accident in which died.
Like a phoenix who has risen from the ashes, I have turned my pain into purpose.
I am now a Clinical Psychologist, a Certified Intervention Specialist, and a Licensed Victim’s Assistant Mediator.
I created The Rich Life to empower you so that you may transform your traumas, pains, and struggles into a life filled with purpose.
