Sheridan, Dae, PhD, LMHC, CRC

Dr. Sheridan serves as an adjunct faculty member at the University of South Florida, teaching Human Sexuality in the Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling Graduate Program and is an assistant clinical professor at the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists.  She is a diplomate of the American Board of Sexology, a member of the American Psychological Association, the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists and the American Mental Health Counselors Association. 

Over the past eighteen years, Dr. Dae Sheridan has utilized cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and a supportive, empowering, strengths-based perspective to provide thousands of clinical therapy hours assisting individuals, couples and families.

She has developed publicly funded teen pregnancy prevention programs, facilitated sexuality education groups at numerous public and private Tampa Bay agencies and has created “Moms Know, Girls Grow”, an interactive group experience for mothers and daughters which supports the philosophy that sexuality education is an ongoing developmental process rather than a one time talk about the “birds and the bees”.

A recognized speaker and commentator on sexual and mental health issues, Dr. Sheridan regularly presents her research, facilitates psychoeducational seminars and participates as a featured expert for television, internet and other media outlets.  She specializes in issues of relationships, communication, intimacy, desire, arousal, reproductive health, infertility, sexual function, sexual trauma, adjustment to disability, gender, body image, adolescent development, comprehensive sexuality education, media literacy, parenting, stress, anger, anxiety and depression.
