Sherry has experience working with individuals using the person-centered approach. She believes developing a strong therapeutic rapport is essential by providing an empathetic, non-judgmental presence and creating a safe, culturally responsive space for clients to share experiences to process their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Sherry incorporates the therapeutic techniques of trauma-informed therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Sherry has a special interest in working with adults and adolescents with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, PTSD, and Borderline Personality Disorder. Her passion for helping clients improve their mental health and functional status is rooted in her expertise working for many years in occupational therapy and mental health.
Sherry loves to spend time in nature, walking, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and skiing. These meaningful activities provide self-compassion and time for her to self-reflect. Sherry aims to help her clients gain self-awareness and achieve meaningful goals toward healthy well-being.
