Dr. Dae Sheridan

Ask Dr. Dae

So, Dr. Dae, would you consider decreased intimacy as a symptom and not a cause of strained relationships?

 




Welcome

My practice is unique in a way you may not find in other therapy offices.  I pride myself in running a boutique practice with a select group of clients who are ready to do the work necessary to create the life they have always wanted.

You will not be rushed out at the 50 minute mark, you will not be charged for phone calls, e-mails or texts.  I believe that everything happens for a reason and have a strong sense that there is a reason you have found me.  I am always humbled when someone trusts in me to join them on their journey. I take that investment very seriously and I am diligent about creating returns on that investment that are life changing.

After our initial session, you will walk out with a goal, a sense of movement forward and a plan for personal growth and development.  You will be treated with care, compassion, true positive regard, hope, enthusiasm, humor and research based treatment modalities.  You will not be on the couch for the next several years.  The intuition based cognitive behavioral therapy that I provide is impactful, empowering and usually brief.

Take the first step in making yourself and your well-being a priority in YOUR life.  I can’t wait to meet you!

More Than Words…

The fact that ANYONE thinks that this is about Trump “saying an offensive word” and not about the sexual assault of women means I have a lot more #@$!%* work to do.

See that? I censored that curse word. Know what I won’t censor? Talking openly about rape culture. Know what else I won’t censor? Myself using a slang term for women’s genitalia like, say, I don’t know… PUSSY.

It’s not your fault that you are so uncomfortable. It’s not your fault that you don’t know the difference between me saying the word PUSSY and a man of considerable power joking with another man that he “grabs THEM by the pussy” and “you can do anything” to women without their consent. It is the fault of our broken sexuality education system, our broken media, and our broken criminal justice and judicial systems.

If you are posting the 50 Shades meme or if you still can’t see “what all the fuss is about”, I will offer to come to your home, work, school, agency, or provide a Skype call FREE OF CHARGE for a session to chat about how, by us being so uncomfortable with our own sexuality, we have become desensitized to the real issues.

The real issue isn’t saying the word PUSSY. The real issue is that we have become a community of sheepish, laugh-along-by-standers because of our own shame about SEX.
We can’t talk about sex openly and honestly. We are afraid. So we stick our heads in the sand. We pretend we’re just as comfortable with it as the next guy. In doing so, we dismiss “jokes” about sexual assault. We regurgitate hurtful, antiquated and unfair stereotypes like “she was asking for it” or “boys will be boys” or it’s “JUST LOCKER ROOM BANTER”.

So I am here.
I am here, ready to have one honest conversation at a time about your guilt, shame and embarrassment surrounding sex.
I am here, ready to help you educate your children so we can truly stop the cycle of sexual violence against women, men and children.
I am here, ready take your calls, texts or e-mails.
I’ll be waiting…

  • I have personally known and worked alongside Dr.Sheridan for over ten years. I initally met her in a clinical setting treating behaviorally unwell adolescent females.  I was impressed by her attentiveness and empathy directed to her patients. She was able to quickly earn their trust and found creative, out of the box interventions to help these girls better cope with the stresses of their young lifes. Dr. Sheridan has blossomed into an innovative therapist and consultant. I  have personally made multiple referrals to her over the years. She is responsive, compassionate and ethical in the treatment of those she serves.

  • Dr. Sheridan is a wonderful community resource. As a therapist myself, sometimes there are issues that come up that are outside of my scope of practice and I am confident making referrals to Dr. Sheridan regarding intimate and sexual issues. She is skilled in treating men, women and couples. It is a pleasure to work alongside a professional who shows such compassion for her work.

  • It was hard enough to admit that I was having sexual issues, but when I contacted Dr. Sheridan, she made me feel comfortable to talk about what was going on in my marriage. I was able to speak freely and honestly while I learned skills to improve my relationships.
