Prior to creating Modern Mindful Therapy, Sherry was a Psychiatric Social Worker in the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, the most extensive county mental health system in the country. This experience solidified her belief in the recovery model as well as the impact of evidence based treatment and other therapy approaches for severe and persistent mental illness. Sherry is a firm believer that learning is a lifelong process and continues training and expanding upon her clinical expertise to this day.
