She also integrates components of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness and Compassion-Focused Therapy, Schema Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

*Sherry has completed two years out of a three-year program in Somatic Experiencing®. Originally developed by Dr. Peter Levine, Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. Within this approach there is a focus on emotional regulation, arousal modulation, and the physiological discharge, release, and completion of self-protective responses (including orienting, fight, flight, and freeze). This release of traumatic shock is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of early developmental and attachment trauma. SE uses focused awareness of bodily sensations to engage the client’s innate self-regulation and healing. Unlike traditional ‘talk therapy’, SE helps the individual develop body awareness to ‘renegotiate’ and heal trauma, rather than to relive or re-enact trauma.
Outside of work, Sherry is a loving wife and a mom to two young daughters. She loves singing, exercising, attending several Saskatchewan summer festivals, and travelling. She is also currently working to learn Swahili!
