on maternity leave
Sherry has worked at Ranch Ehrlo for five years. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the University of Regina in 2007 and in 2012 received her MA in Counselling Psychology from McGill University. She is a registered psychologist with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists with Authorized Practice Endorsement (APE) in counselling and clinical psychology. She has experience providing services to adults, adolescents, and children, working in both clinical and academic settings. Sherry provides culturally sensitive counselling with a focus in the areas of trauma, sexual abuse, LGBTQ issues including sexual orientation and gender identity concerns, mood disorders, anxiety, self-harm, parent-child relations, and grief. She provides comprehensive cognitive, behavioural, and psychological assessment services using both standardized assessments and clinical interviewing. Sherry has many interests and hobbies outside of work; she sings in a choir, is involved in improv theatre, and loves travelling.
Sherry is a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner in training. 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 innate self-regulation and healing. Unlike traditional ‘talk therapy’ SE helps the individual develop body awareness to “renegotiate”’ and heal trauma rather than relive or re-enact trauma.
