Sheryl Cohen

Sheryl Cohen, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist who is in her thirty-seventh year in private practice in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio.  It is in Cincinnati where she was introduced to the Enneagram when Helen Palmer first started teaching there in the early 1990’s.  It became a hub for students from all walks of life to become certified as teachers and Sheryl enjoyed referrals from them for many years. 

Sheryl is the first practitioner to become certified in the Enneagram Professional Track in 2015. She has served first on the board of Enneagram Studies in the Narrative Tradition and then as President of the Board for the merged organization The Narrative Enneagram.

Her clinical interests include grief, loss and bereavement, couples therapy, clinical consultation for other psychotherapists and using the Enneagram in work with clients. 


Jack Killen, MD has been working with the Enneagram personally and professionally for 25 years. He was certified as a teacher in the Narrative Tradition in 2004, and as an Enneagram coach by the Enneagram in Business in 2013.

Jack retired from a 35-year career in biomedical research at the National Institutes of Health in 2013. His deep interest in the intersections of science, the Enneagram, and contemplative spiritual practices took root in a long-standing collaboration with David Daniels MD, Dan Siegel MD, Denise Daniels PhD, and Laura Baker PhD. Together, they seek to bridge the Enneagram community’s collective understanding of the Enneagram grounded in wisdom tradition, and scientific perspectives on the nature of the human mind grounded in the discipline of interpersonal neurobiology. The team is hard at work on a book describing their work together.


Evangeline Welch has co-hosted the monthly Third Thursday Gatherings with Terry Saracino since April 2020. She is TNE’s Communications Advisor, having previously served as Marketing Director since 2005. She is the co-founder of Intuitive Leaps Creative, providing strategic marketing and group facilitation for people and organizations making a difference in the world.
