Beth Sherman Therapy
Are you struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, trauma, grief, or major life changes? No need to go it alone. I would love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
Beginning therapy can be a scary undertaking -- it's an investment of your time and finances, and it may be uncomfortable at times. But therapy is also a commitment to your personal growth and well-being. Using a collaborative, active, and strength-based approach we will explore your experiences, set goals, celebrate the joy in your life, and discover the potential in your journey.
Throughout my life, I have experienced my own challenges with relationship dynamics, self-esteem, finding meaning in my career, managing stress, and striking work-life balance. And through it all, I have personally experienced the transformative power of therapy. I would love to share the power of the process with you.
I hold a masters degree in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA and a masters degree in Health Education from Columbia University. I have 10 years of experience working in the health-and-wellness field as well as 8 years in schools and 5 in the tech world.

I believe that therapy can be helpful for everyone—whether you’re looking to clarify your life's path, improve communication skills, or face unexpected life changes, anxiety, or depression. We’ll work in partnership to identify your support systems and increase your strategies for self-care.
Whether you are looking to enhance an already positive connection, prepare for the next stage of your relationship, break difficult cycles, or work through stuck places, therapy can be a powerful tools for strengthening or redefining your relationship.
My work with couples is informed by EFT and Gottman methods as well as the Prepare/Enrich premarital assessment and tools.
Life can be hectic and sometimes that inhibits our ability to take good care of ourselves. A portion of my practice is dedicated to working with clients throughout California via a secure online platform so that travel and scheduling conflicts can take a backseat.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge?
I offer a sliding scale with fees ranging from $100 - $150 per session for individuals and $120 - $160 for couples. The fee is based on your monthly income and your ability to commit to weekly payments - we can discuss a comfortable rate at the time of our initial consultation.
And because I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone, I reserve a limited number of more reduced-fee spots for clients with financial need. Please contact me for details.
Do you accept insurance?
While I do not bill insurance directly, I encourage you to see if your plan offers any reimbursement for mental-health services. I will gladly provide a statement of services for this purpose.
How often will we meet?
We will meet for 50 minutes once a week. Therapy is a commitment you make to yourself, so consistency and frequency are important for building a strong foundation.
What if I need to reschedule?
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to reschedule a session, please let me know more than 24 hours before our appointment to avoid being charged for the missed session.
Choosing the right therapist can be a daunting task. Let's schedule a 15-minute consultation so that I can answer any questions you may have and give you a sense of who I am.
I look forward to hearing from you!
