Growing up in Chicago, Sherrie had early, personal experience of a relationship breaking down as she watched her parents in conflict, separate, and ultimately divorce which found her in the care of her suddenly single mother. Despite Sherrie’s vow to not make the same mistakes of her parents, her first marriage ended in divorce . This setback opened the pathway to her life’s work as a Relationship Psychologist. She and her husband are currently co-authoring their book, which is anticipated for release in the spring of 2018.
As a Depth Psychologist she coauthored a book, Seeing in the Dark: Wisdom Works by Black Women in Depth Psychology. Dr. Sherrie is committed to helping individuals and couples uncover cultural, social, and spiritual blind spots to find fulfillment in themselves. Her body of work is focused on women, rage, racism, sexism, and feelings of invisibility. She specializes in addressing the obstacles and mental blocks that often hold people back from fulfillment in their personal and professional lives. The methods she applies are designed to support her clients in crafting pathways to living authentic lives beyond their personal, social, and cultural wounds. Her current efforts include her ongoing writing of books and articles and holding workshops for people interested in exploring their cultural wounds.
