Sherry Aleksich, DNP PMHNP- BC
My great passion is to bring healing to those who are struggling with their lives. Some have suffered trauma, life stressors or just academic struggles. I want to help people, whether children or adults, to have self-esteem and strong relationships to feel complete, whole, peaceful, and safe.
My education is a doctorate of nursing practice for psychiatric mental health. My work was previously in neonatal intensive care and pediatrics. I provide medication management for a variety of diagnosed from hyperactivity to depression.
I work in McHenry where I live with my two dogs, a car, and my husband. I am the proud mother of four children and grandmother to three. What is the difference between this website and a grandmother? You can’t deny cookies.
