Sheri Zanganeh Therapy is built on my professional and lived experience – and guided by your unique identity, needs, and goals.

Maybe you’ve experienced this sensation before, but it’s missing now. Perhaps it’s hard to imagine it at all. But that sense of inner peace is closer than it seems, and I’m here to help you uncover it.

There’s something special about winter and the feeling it evokes — a sense of quiet, stillness, and peace unique to this season. And there’s nothing quite like coming in from the cold to the crackling warmth of a fire.

Now take a moment to imagine this experience of calm and peace inside you — in your heart and in your mind. Imagine the warmth of coming home to your true, authentic self.

Yes, you read that right!

I'm Sheri Zanganeh (she/her), lover of cats, reading and winter. 


Because every piece of fabric — every life — is unique, my approach to our work together is too. While I recognize my training has fostered important clinical skills and my own struggles have shaped my worldview, I never come to our sessions with a preset agenda. Instead, I let the work unfold, guided by where you are at that moment in time.

Does this approach resonate with you? Reach out today to begin this work together.

When thinking about the work we’ll do together, it can be helpful to view your life like a piece of fabric made up of threads in different colors, textures, lengths — and differences in how tightly each thread is woven into the fabric. Some threads are old, familiar, and comfortable, while others are more rough, thorny, or visible, requiring a lot of your attention.

These threads that draw your attention may be where we work in the therapy space — knowing the very interwoven nature of the fabric will also prompt the pulling on other threads: childhood, past relationships, past experiences. 

Then, through our work, the threads which initially garnered so much focus may begin to weave in more tightly, drawing less attention and feeling more blended into the overall fabric. This is not to say those threads ever disappear entirely. Instead, they feel more like a part of the overall fabric of your life, smoother and less prominent, rather than the dominant narrative.

What does this process of discovery in therapy look like?

Beyond my skills and training, I have worked through hard things — and I can help you do the same.

  • I received my Bachelor of Science in Business from Cal State Sacramento in 1996, after which I worked in the finance, risk management, and high-tech fields.
  • In 2019, I earned my Master’s Degree in Psychology from Brandman University. After years of telling myself, “If I had to do it all over again, I would have become a therapist” — so I did.
  • I am currently a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and my California license number is #130626.
  • I have specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, which is a proven form of therapy to effectively help clients process and heal from distressing life experiences and trauma, including anxiety, depression, PTSD and panic disorders. Learn more about EMDR therapy on my FAQs page.
  • While I primarily work with adult individuals, I also have completed Level 1 of the Gottman Method, to help support my work with couples.

My personal and professional journey has helped me fulfill my most important role: meeting you where you are, listening with an open mind and an open heart, and creating a space where you can grow and heal.

There is a unique story residing inside each of us. I would be honored to hear yours.
