Dr. Dae Sheridan

Ask Dr. Dae

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



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!


The Survivors’ Seat: How YOU Can Help Provide a Voice to Those Silenced by Sexual Violence

*trigger warning*

I know that many of you are passionate about the issues of sexual assault and sexual abuse. So is the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. Each year, they provide prevention services, hundreds of sexual assault forensic examinations and specialized trauma counseling to thousands of survivors.

As you may know, I have recently joined the Board of Directors for the Crisis Center because their mission is reflective of my own. One month from now, we are holding the Cup of Compassion Breakfast to educate the community about the incredible work that is done every single day at the Crisis Center.

There are lots of ways to get involved with The Crisis Center, but today I am asking your help to serve as a supporter of those who have been the silent victims of sexual trauma. I’d like to give these women, men and children a chance to be heard through your generosity.

Every 107 seconds, someone in the US is sexually assaulted. Due to the shame, stigma, embarrassment and blame that surround victims of sexual violence, many never come forward to report the crimes committed against them. According to the US Justice Department, approximately 70% of sexual assaults in the last five years went unreported. SEVENTY PERCENT.

At my table at the Cup of Compassion event, there will be one empty chair. I am reserving that chair as the “Survivors’ Seat” to represent, give a voice to, and honor the millions of nameless, faceless victims that have been forced to remain silent in the wake of violence that has been perpetrated against them.

Please click the link below to provide a tribute gift to the Survivors’ Seat. Truly, any amount will help. If we share this far and wide, a $1 or $5 gift can multiply exponentially. Through your efforts, The Crisis Center can continue to be the first stop for help, hope and healing for those affected by sexual violence.

Thank you for your support!

  • Going to see Dr. Dae is like getting a mental massage. She finds my self-induced toxins and works ‘em out. Thanks to her, I’m looser, healthier, more flexible and more free from my uptight, knotted-up former self. I have to drink my water and do my stretches, figuratively speaking, by adopting new mental habits that she teaches me. Some I’m successful at, but with others I still seek her guidance. My professional and personal life is SO much better. Thank you, Dr. Dae!

  • 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.

  • Had a great time at “Mommy’s Time Out”. Dr. Dae was awesome! I have wanted to meet her for a while and she did not disappoint! She educated a room full of moms about sex and marriage. Not always an easy task! Thanks Dr. Dae, Limelight Marketing Consultants, Inc., and The Rack in Brandon for a great evening!

  • I can say without reserve that Dr. Dae is unique and wonderful at what she does. I have experienced other therapists before and hands down no one gets through to me like she does. As a man I have found it difficult to deal with certain emotions and anger and I can truly say I’ve never felt more comfortable with someone in dealing with such uncomfortable things.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We had tried several other therapists in the past to work out some relationship “stuff” that was causing major problems in our marriage. In TWO sessions, Dr. Dae cut to the chase and was able to help us pinpoint the feelings we were both having and not talking about. With her encouragement and guidance we got back on the right path and we’ve been there ever since!

  • This may have been the best class I have taken so far!  Her humor made the subject comfortable and her work experience brought a lot of insight to the class.  I couldn’t say enough amazing things about her as a professor!!

  • Dr. Sheridan is extremely professional and very compassionate about helping me through some of my personal matters. While I was deployed to Afghanistan she was immediately available to assist me by any means possible. By my limitations we worked via email, which actually worked quite well for me. She has used some techniques with me that have helped me through some rough times. Some from the past, and a couple from the present.

  • You truly are an inspiration and in a society where it is hard to find icons in the public eye that are worth looking up to, you really set the bar and I am happy to try and reach it. Great work Dr. Dae!

  • Dr Dae and I have been working together for awhile and I have learned a lot about myself through our sessions. Her remarkable combination of empathy, insight, enthusiasm and caring has helped me come up with ways to handle any issues that arise. I am a better man, leader, person and father because of her.  I would, and have, recommended Dr. Dae to many peers, coworkers and family members.
