As a Christian Sherry believes that our faith and beliefs are an important part of who we are and how we live out our lives. Sherry takes a holistic approach to therapy which includes addressing the individual, couple or family's spirituality and belief systems. If the client wishes, she includes praying with her clients at the conclusion of sessions.

Most of the clients I work with are not interested in the integration of a faith-based approach,. I respect this and then use a professional approach with them. However, for those who ask, I integrate a Christian, faith-based approach into the sessions. When Christians are going through a difficult time they are usually looking for a counsellor that shares their world view. It is my heart to help people connect with God in the midst of their pain.

I have a growing and vital relationship with Jesus. My faith informs my work and I use therapeutic approaches that are consistent with biblical teaching re the human experience. Counseling will involve helping clients to discern God's direction in their lives while providing encouragement, hope and an awareness of God's grace and total acceptance.

Within a Biblical framework, counselling becomes an even richer process. A Biblical base simply means that the therapist believes that all human beings were created in the image of God, intended for relationship and designed with the capacity for growth and change. Forgiveness, personal empowerment, learning to love self and other are critical parts of the process. Jesus said "I came to heal the broken hearted" and at some point, most of us would love to sink into that compassionate offer. Biblical based counselling does not infer any judgement or inflexibility within the therapeutic process.

565 Sanatorium Road Unit 204A, Hamilton, ON
As a Christian therapist, I feel it always important to work with my client’s faith and value system. Since I am counseling as a person with Christian beliefs, it is not my plan to impose my values on my clients, but to help them in their journey. Since I am a Christian, my frame of reference would be led by the spirit of God. It is my hope to guide individuals towards a stronger relationship with God and with others. It is in this relationship that I believe people will reach their goals and achieve the significance that God has always meant for us to enjoy.

I love God. It’s not always easy, but it’s a choice that has made a difference in my life. If God means a lot to you or if you’re trying to figure this whole God thing out then we have the start of something great. Together we can help you discover the answers you are looking for, and return you to where you want to be. Using God as our foundation, we will help you discover the blessing He wants for you.

We were created for relationship with God. In turn, our relationship with God affects our relationships with other people and our personal well being. It is through a biblical foundation that I counsel with warmth and professionalism. Often, clients are comforted in knowing that their therapist comes to the healing process with a Christian worldview, and that their therapy is based on biblical principles.

Art Therapist and Counsellor

I use various counselling techniques, including therapeutic art making, talking therapy, scriptures, and prayer to counsel those who are practicing Christians, new Christians, or interested in Christianity. I help those who are struggling with their faith, as well as those who are not struggling with their faith, but simply want counselling in the framework of their Christian background, I take a Christian approach to counselling my clients through the tough times. I understand the importance of faith in the healing process; whether it is dealing with an illness, overcoming abuse, the loss of a sense of identity, or broken relationships. My approach meets my clients where their faith is.

Having worked for at a Catholic Family Service Agency for almost ten years, I have a very good understanding of Catholic values and the influence they have in the lives of many people. With my knowledge of Catholic values, combined with my client-centred non-judgmental approach, I can assist you to create goals that are consistent with your beliefs and values. I am also aware that dilemmas can present themselves for people when it seems like what they want or need in life is in conflict with religious teachings. I can help you to negotiate and resolve those dilemmas.
