our team is built for brainsavvy success — and an integrative approach

Cherie Dikelsky, ACC, ECPC is a trusted pathfinding partner to visionaries whose success thrives on their scope of mind.


As the founder and principal success coach at Hemispheres, Cherie has devoted over two decades to the study and development of thinking and behavior frameworks. Her journey, which began in behavior design, was profoundly influenced by an experience with brain injury that turned her passion for brainsavvy into a calling. Today, Cherie helps clients use coaching to transform their uncertainties into creative, vital spaces where the mind and the neuroplastic brain join forces, revealing and expanding their discoverable pathways and resources.
