Sherry’s Bio

My name is Sherry Tucker and I am a registered Social Worker with the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers (SASW). I completed a Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Regina and a Bachelor of Psychology degree from the University of Saskatchewan. I also have a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Regina. I have training in Clinical Counselling, Family Systems theory, Intensive Applied Behavioural Analysis (IABA), Restorative Justice, Threat Assessment Training, Trauma Systems Training, Attachment Training and Collaborative Problem Solving, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I have further training in conducting parenting capacity assessments, and tests measurements in psychological testing. In addition, I have completed extensive research on parental alienation, neurodevelopment, trauma and attachment. I utilize my experience, knowledge and training to work with children, teenagers, families, individuals.


Children are not like little adults. They learn and grow very quickly, and sometimes parents can use some help figuring out the best way to do that. I employ my knowledge of neurodevelopment and training in attachment theory to assist parents/caregivers and children to develop closer bonds and address children’s developmental needs and behavioural concerns. I utilize integrative strategies to assist children and families live their best lives.

Through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, skills training and somatosensory activities, I work alongside children and families to help them address their concerns.


The transition to adulthood is a difficult one for most children. Teenagers today experience more pressure than ever before. Balancing school, family and work obligations can be difficult even for adults. The added strain of traversing the road to independence can at times seem like too much for some adolescents. I build a foundation of trust with teenagers which allows them to express themselves through art therapy, talk therapy and family therapy. With the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Attachment Therapy, I am able to assist children and adolescents.


I help individuals navigate life’s obstacles and address their concerns in a non-judgemental and direct way. I utilize Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Attachment Therapy and Accelerated Resolution Therapy to assist individuals in dealing with a variety of difficulties.

Assessment Services

Adoption Home-Study
As a certified adoption home study assessor approved by the Ministry of Social Services, I am able to provide prospective adoptive parents with an adoption home study, now called a Mutual Family Assessment, or MFA. Adoption home studies typically take between 3-6 months to complete after the initial consultation, depending upon how quickly the information can be gathered. I am able to provide prospective parents with information on how to foster an attachment with their child and answer questions they may have regarding child development, trauma and attachment. For more information, please contact reception.

Voice of the Child Reports
I provide Voice of the Child Reports more commonly referred to as Children’s Voices Reports. Reports of this nature are typically reserved for children who are 12 years old and older. In order to proceed with a report of this nature both parents must agree to the report or there must be a court order indicating the report must be completed. The report is intended to provide the court with the child’s voice. For more information, please contact reception.

Parenting Capacity Assessments
Along with two undergraduate degrees and a Master of Social Work degree, I have taken training through Humber College in Ontario and obtained a certificate in Child Welfare and Forensic Assessment. I also have extensive training in child welfare, attachment and trauma, family systems theory and child development. This training, along with my extensive experience working with children and families makes me uniquely qualified to conduct parenting capacity assessments. For more information, please contact reception.

I am a wife and mother of two adult children and love to spend my leisure time hanging out with my family. When I am not busy with my family, I enjoy crocheting and crafting all sorts of creations.
