Ratings for Dr. Alissa Sherry
Keep yourself, and your children, far away from Alissa Sherry. My experience with her was in the family court system. She was hired to review select evidence from the other side, and give an unfavorable report on me. She never spoke to me or my children. She does not care about the truth. She says what she is paid to say. She is bad news.
Dr. Sherry does not take the time to even remotely find out what is in your child's best interest. In fact, she won't even speak to the children at all, not even if they are middle/high school age. She picks a side based on nothing to do with the case at hand (like money, charm, best liar, ... I've been told by others it's also religion, political views, so who knows?) Not only will she not even talk to the child but she will throw out years worth of therapy notes if the child's therapist does not side with her. Be prepared to pay 10x what the same reports cost from other evaluators (we have been through more than one evaluation) and she will spend a fraction of time and effort as they will.
Dr. Sherry , without visiting my kid, made a recommendation that he stop seeing a therapist, that it wasn't needed. 2 months later, with the help of the guardian, he was re-enrolled in therapy and still sees one to this day. I don't see how a professional recommendation like that can be made about the care of a child if the "professional" has never met the child.
Be careful here. As a mental health professional, I am so tired of her rushed, unthorough assessments, including assessments of what is best for a child without even talking to or laying eyes on the child. She will not disagree with the old guard Guardian adlitems because they are her referral source. It will come back to bite her, but in the meantime, be careful because she is not.
