Parenting, divorce, remarriage, blending families, co-parenting and the desire to help others learn skills to cope with the events of everyday living are what lead Sheridan to pursue a degree in counseling. She believes there is no need to face issues alone. With a collaborative approach, she can help people better understand life events that have shaped their experiences and choices and learn skills to be more effective.
Sheridan works with clients ages 12 and above and specializes in working with individuals looking for support with parenting, divorce, stress management, life transitions and coping skills.
Sheridan utilizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavior therapy when working with clients. Sheridan also co-facilitates a weekly DBT skills group at Natalis.
