About me

I am licensed in California with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, motivation and attention, self esteem, and peak performance coaching. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you.

I have over twelve years of experience working with patients using QEEG-guided Neurofeedback to treat a wide variety of symptoms, diagnoses, and work with those who want to have the most cutting-edge strategies to enhance their ability to perform in elite sports and performing arts. As a primary therapist at Linden’s Attention Learning Center, seeing hundreds of adults and children, I gained confidence that NFB can be an effective treatment for Attention Disorders, Mood Disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. I received further education under the guidelines of Biofeedback Certification International Alliance, which is the governing board for international certification for practitioners. I also hold certification as a HeartMath Certified Practitioner for Stress Management.

As a former professional ballerina, I have a passion for working with elite performers and those who work in high stress professions. Training in the field Sport Psychology has provided me with a specific skill set to work with this population and give my clients the tools to thrive in challenging environments. My areas of experience include but are not limited to Peak Performance, Mental Skills Training, Performance Anxiety, Coping Skills, Career Transitions, as well as issues related to athletic injuries. I also work with other individuals such as gifted children, and those in high pressure and elite professions.

You have taken the important first step in reaching out, and I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Scheherazade Collins. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Ms. Collins takes breaks to pause and encourages me to breath and listen to my body. I feel heard during sessions. When my thoughts may spin, she is able to reset the conversation to my original concern. It’s something I am working on, not letting my thoughts spin .
