Rev. Sheri Heller, LCSW is a complex trauma/addiction therapist in NYC and interfaith minister who is also a writer and media resource. Sheri strives to deliver intelligent, well-researched, persuasive non-fiction content. She also loves crafting plays and short stories which convey a raw, complex awareness of the innermost self.
Sheri's articles have been published at PsychCentral, The Humanist, Contemporary Psychotherapy Journal, BRIGID, Scene4 Magazine, The Feminist Wire and The Dissident Voice. In 2017 she self-published an anthology of her writings, "A Clinician’s Journey from Complex Trauma to Thriving; Reflections on Abuse, C-PTSD and Reclamation". "Let the Phoenix Rise" is a full-length play Rev. Heller co-authored and integrated into a therapeutic theater event consisting of performances and workshops which were brought to mainstream audiences and at-risk underserved women in the public sector of NYC. This theater project was a proud recipient of grant funding from the Puffin Foundation, Eileen Fisher's Community Partnership, & Off- Broadway Angels. A work of creative nonfiction Sheri authored was curated by OC87 Recovery Diaries and morphed into an interview and an animated film short. Included in a one hour mental health special, this animated film short and interview was aired on PBS/WHYY in 2017.
Sheri’s input is cited in publications such as Redbook, Tonic, Bustle, The Epoch Times, Readers Digest and Huff Post. Sheri is also the psychology advisor for the Canadian publication BRIGID magazine and has been a guest on diverse podcasts discussing complex trauma and gender rights. Lastly, Sheri is a travel enthusiast, nature lover, and perennial seeker, with an appreciation for the absurd. The arts in every medium, nourish my being.
