Sherri Gansz, LCSW, LADAC
Sherri is a Licensed Certified Social Worker. She is originally from AR but over the last 15 years has moved often with her husband and family due to his career in the U.S. Army. Upon his upcoming retirement, Sherri and her family have made Northwest Arkansas their home and are hoping to give to a community her passion for serving and helping others in need as they have done throughout her husband’s career. Sherri has been married for sixteen years and has four children and two grandchildren. Sherri received her Bachelors in Social Work from Jonesboro, AR and her Masters in Social Work from Fayetteville, NC. Sherri’s experience in a public mental health agency in North Carolina, working with military families during stressful times, and the vast experience gained in Arkansas over the past few years working in school settings, outpatient therapy and inpatient staff and psychiatrists has given her tremendous insight into the mental health field. She hopes to work with local schools, churches, businesses, nursing homes and doctor’s offices for referrals, needs assessments and coordinating care with other agencies. This has been Sherri’s passion and dream to be active in a local community and to provide hope and encouragement for those emotionally, physically or spiritually in pain. Moving forward Sherri is hoping to organize a variety of group sessions dealing with weight loss management, grief, anxiety, depression and light therapy treatment.
