My Gratitude for Sherry is far beyond imagination! Sherry not only observed me for three days with a smile on her face, but she was the first person since my accident over 2 years ago to support my frustrations and make me feel validated and confirm I was not going crazy! Sherry diagnosed my mild brain injury that has caused numerous problems in my life affected my work and my family. I had been to several doctors but Sherry is the Angel I needed!!! her suggestions of vision therapy EMDR and more have all sent me on a new journey of healing. Because of Sherry and her astout expertise from 25 years of experience I will no longer have to live my life feeling confused and tired. I will be whole again. Tears stream down while writing this, my heart filled with so much thankfulness for this beautiful and compassionate OT in my life. Thank you Sherry for sending me on the road to a profound healing I am so excited to start feeling like myself once again!!!
Big Love for you!

Sherry Young did an ADL Assessment on a paraplegic client of mine, and testified in deposition and at the trial. Previously, she performed a FCE for a young athlete with a shoulder injury. Sherry is thorough, punctual and a true advocate for the client. I highly recommend her and my clients appreciate her greatly.

Jim Avery, Lawyer

Sherry is terrific! Her evaluation was very thorough and helpful to the other members of my medical team. Over the course of three days, I participated in a variety of tasks so she could determine my functionality. My doctor was very happy with Shery’s thorough, factual report. The report validated my physical limitations and will be very helpful to my doctor in planning further treatment. If you are in need of an independent, thorough, accurate assessment of your abilities and limitations (and maybe some validation when you are hearing different things from different doctors), I would highly recommend Sherry Young and Starting Point Rehab!


Starting Point designed and conducted an examination that met my client’s condition and needs. Sherry then prepared an accurate, credible, timely, cost-effective, and convincing report for my client. I recommend Starting Point and Sherry Young.

David Steinhoff, Attorney

Just wanted to share my spectacular news – Cigna reversed their denial on my second appeal, so I will again begin rec’g benefits. This fabulous turn of events is in large part due to your FCE and the way you support your findings. My GP is thrilled w/your report because it supports what she has always said.
Thank you for getting me in so quickly for my eval, and for all your professionalism, your compassion, and the quality of the final report. You will always have a special place in my heart, Sherry. This has been such a difficult, stressful time. Thank you for making it easier.


Sherry Young is a knowledgeable, compassionate, highly experienced therapist. She’s very easy to work with, and that’s an important consideration when you’re in pain and traumatized! I was initially daunted when I learned that the process would take 3 days, and that I would have to drive from Aurora to Arvada each day. (Driving has become a rather stressful activity for me since the accident, and I avoid it whenever possible.) I am really glad that I made the effort to go through this process. It was extremely informative – even if some of it was “bad” news. I have a greater understanding of what is going on with me – my physical and cognitive limitations – what I can do to recover, and how long this will likely take.
Ms. Young is patient with your pain, is genuinely invested in helping you to understand your situation, and very thorough in explaining things and walking you through the process.
If this process has been suggested for you, undertake it – even if you really don’t want to. It will be very informative and beneficial to your long term health and well-being.


From the moment I first contacted Sherry I felt I was in extremely capable hands, My attorney had highly recommended her as being thorough, professional and prompt. I found her to be all these things as well as a compassionate and caring individual. I cannot recommend her highly enough! My chronic fatigue is a difficult thing to live with and Sherry helped me put it all in perspective . I will always be grateful for finding her!

Mari Temmer

I highly recommend Sherry Young for an FCE if you are going through a difficult time with an injury.
I personally have a difficult time meeting new people due to severe anxiety, and she made me feel very comfortable and provided a safe space for my evaluation.
She was amazing at taking the time to properly evaluate what is going on physically, mentally and emotionally with me due to my complex injuries. Sherry took the time over a 3 day period to evaluate my ability to perform everyday tasks in a work environment, and an in home setting.
Sherry was very observant overall at everything I did so she could provide accurate information in my FCE report. She also took the time to offer suggestions for future care I may be able to utilize, and will personally speak with my specialists about her findings and recommendations. She is most definitely one of a kind and very empathetic, understanding, and caring!
It is very obvious she loves what she does and cares about people genuinely and helping them find a road to living a better quality of life!
Thank you so much for everything Sherry!

I had the pleasure of meeting Sherry at the Matheson Cost of Care course and collaborating with her since. She is very experienced, knowledgeable and extremely personable young lady! I highly recommend her in OT related expertise, particularly functional assessments!

Raph Kowalik

It is with pleasure that I write this referral for Sherry Young. She was very thorough with my functional capacity evaluation. She was also very thorough with the report she wrote and it made all the difference in navigating the paperwork and criteria to continue insurance benefits and Social Security. She was very compassionate and understanding with my limitations and she made me feel comfortable. I would recommend her services to anyone that needs a functional capacity evaluation or physical therapy.


Sherry Young, OTR did an excellent job for our client on a functional capacity evaluation for a long term disability case. Her evaluation and report were detailed, clear and very helpful in allowing others to understand how our client’s medical issues impacted her ability to work. I highly recommend Sherry and Starting Point Rehabilitation.

H. Loeffel

The Functional Capacity Evaluation from Starting Point was the basis and foundation for my successful disability appeal with Cigna for Parkinson’s. Sherry Young was professional and thorough, while maintaining a comfortable, caring and respectful atmosphere through the entire process.
The overall work product exceeded the work scope and my expectations. I received advice and recommendations on many topics that have resulted in significant improvements to my overall quality of life. This includes physical exercise, diet, cognitive exercises, stretching and organization, as well as generally understanding and dealing with my disease. It was an amazing learning experience.
My time at Starting Point was more than productive. It was financially and personally rewarding. I heartily recommend Sherry Young to anyone or any organization in need of Functional Capacity Evaluations or Occupational Therapy.

Paul "Mike" Satterlee

I was injured at work about a year and a half ago. Dealing with some of the people through workman’s comp has been a nightmare. Little did I know how much a person truly stands to lose if they are permanently injured at work. I was diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. However, as time went on and cost went up, work comp has attempted to change my diagnosis and lessen my restrictions. With that being said, I chose to go to Starting Point to get a FCE to see where I truly am in terms of restrictions. Sherry is incredibly knowledgeable! I was nervous about how much pain I would be enduring throughout the FCE and worried that it would just be one more person who would sweep my CRPS under the rug. Wow was I wrong! Sherry educated me more about nerve damage and how the body is all interconnected and how each thing can affect the next. She was patient, compassionate, encouraging, and supportive. More importantly, she expected me to do exactly what I can, without slacking and without trying to push beyond my limitations. She was very adept at knowing when I was attempting to do more than I can. She set up realistic scenario’s so that she could get a true picture of what my job entails. Furthermore, Sherry validated my condition and my frustration. She gave me encouragement and hope when I needed it most.
The bottom line is, if you need an FCE, Starting Point is where you need to go. Sherry is the best, most professional and most knowledgeable person to get this evaluation done through.

Katherine Hudson

Thank you Sherry and team for your expertise in functional capacity testing. I submitted your report in my appeal. Unum reversed their denial of my claim for disability. Your report was instrumental in being awarded disability. I also appreciate your compassion for your clients and knowing when we need a gentle push to see what we are really capable of.

Debbie A.

Sherry is very professional and thorough in her testing and reporting for the FCE. The report is very clear about the testing and how the testing is validated as an accurate representation. She is very helpful through the process and also makes sure you understand the report. The test being over a three day period was what I needed for the issues I have. She is reasonable in price and meets her timeline commitments.
