The BIO of Sherri
Sherri Scott-Berner, is firstly a
wife and mother of two young adults, who works as a Psychological/CBT, working along side Adults, Youth, and those struggling with Marriage and Sex related areas. Her private practice is located in South Surrey, BC where she specializes in “last
ditch” marital cases as well as Depression, Anxiety, Career Adjustments, and Parenting Issues.
She and her husband have owned
for six years, one of the first Christian Internet Counselling websites in North America that concentrates on helping married
couples who feel either the passion or friendship in their marriage has
diminished; or those who are hoping to awaken passion or friendship that has
never been there from the start.
is also in the midst of writing a book which addresses reigniting the passion
in the bedroom and jump
staring the friendship
couples once had. She has also developed a game that promotes good
communication which she is awaiting publication, and spearheading an organization that promotes
"standing" for one's marriage.
"We don't just talk about it" is my
slogan. (You can even see it on my truck if you catch me out and about.)
I want couples out there, (especially the men out there), to know that my
counselling style is a... "fix-it" style. I don't spend endless
hours hashing over each emotionally charged story of your married life,
instead, we look at where you are, where you wish to be, and from there...
"we" can devise a plan of how to get there."
accompanying degree as a Paralegal, and graduating with ‘Highest
Honors', Sherri has expert experience
on the destructiveness of divorce,
and uses an upfront and
casual counselling style to help steer couples in the direction of healing their
marriages in a proactive fashion. Producing, directing and acting, remains close to
Sherri’s heart, which she demonstrates
by working with community adult and children’s theatre, an experience that she uses to facilitate
psychodrama and group therapies
It is not uncommon to be welcomed by Sherri sporting blue
jeans, bare feet, and a steaming pot of hot tea - clearly coming off more like the
"girl next door" more than your typical stereo typed therapist. However, don't let that fool you - she still means business, and she gives out the
homework to prove it.
also worked as a youth leader, helping to lead programs, activities and
addressing many emotional topics plaguing young teen today which include: parental problems, premarital sex, rape, teen pregnancy, drugs and drinking,
addictions, suicide, school pressures, employment/career planning, personality testing, and peer relationships.
attributes help Sherri holistically work with couples, adult individuals and youth,
in many different counselling arenas with
her cognitive/behavioral approach; thus assisting her clients
move on to
more successful, meaningful marriages, relationships and lives,
in as short as ‘six’ sessions, or ‘one’
of her weekend “Intensive Workshops”.
(Sherri) ”I have worked with many couples who are
struggling in their marriages... especially within those intimate arenas (whether infidelity, or just sexual incompatibility)... for seven years now.
With the negative influences of the Internet on our
society, monogamous couples are the perfect targets for their marriages to be
affected by destructive forces. "
(Sherri) "Unfortunately there is not much help out there for couples
who have been raised with spiritual/religious beliefs in the arena of
sexuality, or the guilt associated with sex that may have been initiated during
childhood. OR, there may have been sexual trauma during childhood to young adulthood, with the affects still negatively affecting their marriages today. '
(Sherri) "I have lived a life full of experiences, and have had no
lack of struggles myself. Being a survivor of these situations gives me
an edge in helping others...I'm not just the book knowledge type, but in many
areas I may have walked in your shoes at some time in my life. I feel WITH my clients and believe that may be what
sets me apart from other professionals at
times; and I truly and sincerely want to see them succeed in their lives and
hope to be the one to catapult them
into that much needed direction of healing."
MY AIM… is to provide my clients with hands-on cognitive/behavioral
type therapy, ( whether in private practice, group setting, or in a semi- seminar
type environment) to help them achieve important techniques to better
understanding themselves, cope with life safely and effectively, improve communication to safeguard their
lives in all arenas, as well as deal with abusive, or sexual issues and
questions that the majority of individuals don’t feel comfortable discussing
with their doctor, their friends or family, their spouse, and especially their
my goal is to create an atmosphere that is comfortable for you, and a
relationship between the two of us that allows you to share without fear of judgement
or fear for your emotional safety."
