What Our Clients are Saying

    One day at the Power to Reconnect retreat has made me more aware that if I get to a negative place I can put a stop to it and find a way out!

    I have had the honor of knowing Sheri as a colleague and consultant for over 20 years. Sheri’s clinical expertise in dealing with youth and families is surpassed by none. Teens and youth are quickly drawn to her dynamic, informative and engaging style. I would highly recommend Sheri for family or individual therapy and/or consultation regarding parenting.

    Sheri first met our daughter years ago during a social/emotional crisis – as most therapist relationships often begin. Today our daughter continues to struggle with a complicated diagnosis, but Sheri’s experience and support continues to be a critical resource, not only for our daughter but for our entire family.

    Sheri is a kind, compassionate person and dedicated therapist who goes above and beyond for her patients. My family and I credit Sheri with saving my life.

    Having spent the last 5 years frustrated by the disconnect between our pediatrician, psycho pharmacologists, holistic practitioners, therapists, educational and school avoidance services, FLIHH is the answer to my prayers. Sheri's vision to bring alternative therapies in concert with traditional effective strategies is sure to bring families like mine the peace of mind they seek.

    I was stuck in a debilitating depression for years. Sheri helped me lift myself up by working with me to change my internal dialogue by providing strategies to remove destructive words that had been reinforced in my subconscious.
