About Sherry D'Andrea
Accepting new clients!
Ready to move through trauma to regain a sense of safety, grounding, and wellbeing? I am a trauma-focused therapist, specializing in healing emotional distress following sports-related trauma, loss, and injury, and am dedicated to reducing stigma and increasing emotional wellness in the outdoor community. Maybe you survived a backcountry accident, witnessed injury or death, suffered loss, or are experiencing disrupted sense of self following injury. My goal is to help you move past distressing experiences so that you can regain a sense of safety and find emotional wellness.
Through my work as a trauma therapist and years as a climber and recreational athlete, I understand the impact trauma and emotional distress can have on our sport, and in day to day life. In my work, I use EMDR, Brainspotting, and integrate CBT, DBT, and mindfulness. My approach is compassionate, collaborative and highly relational, while targeted and direct.
Traumatic experiences can affect us deeply in ways we might not expect. Depression, anxiety, fear, avoidance, shame, helplessness, guilt, and even anger, are all common emotional responses following traumatic events or loss. They can be overwhelming, and even debilitating. In a safe, nonjudgemental, and accepting environment, we will navigate it together.
