Sheryl Borka, MSW, LICSW is a licensed therapist at Allina Health Faribault Clinic.
What is your practice philosophy? I believe in meeting people where they are and sharing space while they learn new ways to overcome challenges we all face. I love learning from my patients and helping them find and identify their inner strengths. I look forward to working with my patients as we navigate life together.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? It was while I was on a missions trip to Haiti when I was 15 years old that I discovered how much I love connecting with people and helping them feel better while they face challenging times. One day I was playing with some children and although we did not speak the same language, we laughed and smiled while playing games such as “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”. Even the smallest act can spread a lot of joy.
What is the best thing you’ve done for your health or the best health advice you’ve received? What you think is how you feel.
What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of watching my children grow up to be some pretty awesome people.
What are a few of your personal achievements? I have a terrible fear of heights, but went zip-lining in Cancun on my honeymoon!
