"Conflict itself is neither nor good nor bad. How you handle conflict makes the difference. When you recognize your power to create inner peace, you gain the comfort and confidence to address conflict in all areas of life. Your inner peace helps create outer peace."

Sherry Ann Bruckner

Mediator | Conflict Consultant | Peace Coach 

Although she remembers first acting as a mediator in fifth grade, Sherry Ann Bruckner's official mediation work began in 1997 at the Ramsey County courthouse in St. Paul. From her twenty-plus years' experience practicing civil and family law, and own personal experiences with silence and violence, Sherry understands how much inner peace impacts outer peace.

A graduate of Hamline University’s College of Liberal Arts and William Mitchell College of Law, Sherry Ann brings more than twenty years of civil and family law experience to her mediation practice. Sherry also studied conflict resolution at Rothberg International School in Jerusalem and serves on the Minnesota Supreme Court’s Rule 114 Qualified Neutrals List. She attained certification as Life Mastery Consultant through the Brave Thinking Institute and trained in Restorative Circles and Restorative Conferencing through the International Institute of Restorative Practices. Sherry serves as a neutral on matters ranging from bias, discrimination, and employment termination to marriage dissolution and caring for aging parents.

Through her signature programs, Awaken Your Light, Be a Transformational Leader, Creating Connective Conversations, and Get Comfortable with Conflict, she sparks you to embrace your personal power to create peace, and gives you the comfort and confidence to do so.

Sherry believes strongly in the transformational power of clarity, compassion, curiosity, and cribbage.

Wherever she travels, she often enjoys amazing hiking, chai tea, or scallops and loves sharing biking, hiking, kayaking, and laughter with loved ones.

“Sherry is compassionate, talented, and open minded. I highly recommend Bruckner Mediation.”

“Sherry was the first person I contacted when a conflict came up and I needed some insight before responding. As a service-oriented business, it is imperative the needs of my clients come first without detriment to the business. She has a unique way of helping one see from different perspectives, of wording responses so that others’ needs are heard and met and of keeping the conversation continuing until both parties felt an adequate resolution.”

“Sherry gave me a chance to consider my own messaging and habits, which gave me the curiosity to discover new perspectives and insights. In finding peace within myself, I am also becoming a more understanding, compassionate, and loving partner in my relationships.”

This well-rounded ability makes for an approach to situations that is both practical and intuitive. She asks questions that lead to the solutions and uncovers practical ways of resolving them. Whomever she encounters will be working with the very best and I am grateful to have been one of them.”
