interview with clinical psychologist and author Sherry Walling

This week I spoke with author and clinical Psychologist Sherry Walling about her circus show in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month and her upcoming book Touching Two Worlds.

“Circus may seem like an odd choice for a topic as serious as grief; however, circus arts, much like dance, can be used to express nuanced emotion and storytelling.

I lost my brother to suicide in 2019 (six months after our dad died of cancer). Afterwards, I struggled to take care of my children, to work, to even get out of bed. One of the only things that helped me to feel alive was my aerial hobby. Spinning and climbing helped me to reconnect with joy and strength.”
