More than just opening our doors on Sundays, we want to walk with you through difficult times.

Ridge Care provides pastoral care in the areas of marriage and family relationships, premarital education, one-on-one mentoring, dependent care for individuals with special needs, divorce recovery, addictive behavior recovery, and grief support.

We also want to support and pray with you as you experience any type of life-transforming circumstance, such as birth, illness, hospitalization, or death.

To let us know how we can help, please fill out the Care Form below.

  • Cheryl Vaughan

    Cheryl Vaughan

    A Texan through and through, Cheryl grew up in the Dallas area. She attended the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!) for both her undergraduate and graduate studies earning a Bachelor in Psychology and a Master of Counselor Education. She met her husband, Luke, in 2003 while attending college. Her relationship with Luke and a relentless roommate inviting her to Bible study led Cheryl to Christ at the age of 22.

    After becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor and spending years in secular counseling, Cheryl was offered a job at Ridge Counseling where she enjoyed the freedom to invite Jesus into the counseling room. It was this experience that reinforced Cheryl’s conviction that there is no hope outside of Christ and the pivotal role of a relationship with the Lord in reaching mental health goals. After taking some time to be a full time mom to her three daughters, Cheryl is overjoyed to return as a member of the Ridge Care team. In her free time, Cheryl loves all things crafty: quilting, knitting, embroidery, and sewing!
