"Practicing as a civil and family law attorney for nearly twenty years, I witnessed the tremendous amount of time, money, and emotional energy exhausted in litigation. Avoiding important conversations takes a similar toll on business, family and organization morale and productivity. I enjoy helping people engage in important conversations in a private, confidential setting and teaching tools to confidently approach challenging conversations."

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

Katie T.

“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.”

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.”
