Description of Practice

Disagreements are natural. Sometimes people find themselves stuck in the situation and need help talking with each other. Mediation allows participants to discuss issues in a private setting and reclaim their decision-making ability. Sherry Bruckner helps people engage in civil and constructive conversations in custody, parenting time, and divorce mediation, as well as on-line family mediation.

Sherry approaches mediation with curiosity and compassion, recognizing the importance of understanding individual needs. Besides facilitating constructive conversations between folks in conflict, Sherry teaches conflict resolution and peace building skills to businesses, organizations and individuals, and provides individual peace and conflict coaching. You may learn more in her free online monthly peace building class.

Sherry completed civil and advanced mediation training through Hamline University’s Dispute Resolution Institute in 1997, and certified family law mediation training in 1998. She earned her law degree from William Mitchell College of Law in 1999, and maintains a license to practice law in the State of Minnesota and U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. She practiced civil and family law for nearly twenty years. A qualified neutral on the Minnesota Supreme Court's Rule 114 roster, Sherry also serves as adjunct faculty at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

She actively shares her time with a number of community organizations and enjoys biking, hiking, reading, traveling, or enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
