Sheridan Henderson is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist whose private practice is based in Beverly Hills, California. She offers both video and in-person sessions. Her clients range from ages 12 to 86. She sees individual clients and couples from diverse cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations, addressing issues around LGBTQIA2S+, arts-related careers, feminism, and generally navigating life with its concomitant anxieties, depression, trauma, and other challenges.
Sheridan is trained in a broad range of therapeutic modalities, including psychodynamic, Jungian, psychoanalytic, relational gestalt, existential, feminist, and somatic orientations. Sheri works with clients to address issues in the here-and-now that might be impacting their life satisfaction and joy.
This is Sheridan’s third career. Her undergraduate work included dual majors in modern dance and comparative literature. She enjoyed dancing professionally while she was young enough to do it and then equally enjoyed her 39 years in K-12 public education as teacher, coach, consultant, author (Holt, Rinehart, Winston), and administrator. Over time, she felt there were better ways to address the human issues that her students and their families were experiencing. This led her to return to school for a second Master’s degree: Master of Arts in Counseling with an emphasis in Depth Psychology. She is currently studying psychoanalytic theory and is planning to pursue analytic training.
