Welcome

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.

 

About Therapy

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.

 

About Me

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.

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 PACT, EFT, and Gottman methods as well as the Prepare/Enrich premarital assessment and tools.

Online
therapy

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.

* Due to COVID-19 I am currently seeing all clients online until further notice.

Frequently Asked Questions

​How much do you charge?

My fee is $160 per session for individuals and $180 per session for couples.

 

And because I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone, I reserve a limited number of 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 48-hour cancellation policy.  If you need to reschedule a session, please let me know more than 48 hours before our appointment to avoid being charged for the missed session.
