About me

Hello, and welcome! My name is Dr. Sheri Balsam. I am a licensed psychologist, and earned my Psy.D. with a concentration in Multicultural Psychology from Rutgers University. I have completed extensive clinical training working with teenagers and adults in a variety of settings, and have specialized postdoctoral training in CBT. I am passionate about providing effective, empirically-based care, integrating CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic techniques into my work. Drawing from these modalities, I formulate appropriate, individualized interventions that target symptom relief and reduce emotional distress. In my practice, I aim to help you discover, utilize, and maximize personal strengths in order to cultivate meaningful, long lasting change.

I am experienced in treating a range of anxiety and depressive disorders, those struggling with life transitions, relationship/marital issues, and eating disorders. Through the myriad of interventions at my disposal and the profound power of a therapeutic relationship, clients learn to understand the factors preventing them from experiencing life satisfactions they deserve and/or the kind of close, intimate relationships they desire. I strive to create a warm, nonjudgmental atmosphere where my clients can acquire effective coping skills, communication techniques, and the tools necessary to facilitate the change desired in their life or relationship.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, supportive, and empathetic. I seek to make each client feel comfortable, heard, and understood. I am committed to helping you understand yourself on a deeper level and employ new tools to overcome beliefs and patterns that are no longer serving you, so that you can live a life in accordance with your personal goals and values.

I view any individual’s entrance into therapy as an expression of courage and hope. It is a privilege to be invited into your narrative to navigate this journey of personal healing and transformational growth. Thank you for visiting this site and for taking the time to read about me! I understand that choosing the right therapist for you is an important decision. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email, as I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to speaking with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Sheri Balsam. 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.

Dr. Sheri has been heaven sent. I came to her with extreme anxiety and burnout from work, self confidence issues and a lifelong tango with perfectionism. We literally went on a journey of exploring the root of my triggers and working on tangible ways to react to my anxiety, and to really morph the way I think and train my reactions. She has amazing attention to detail, and really cares and rings so many bells with what she advises me to do. I am so grateful for the time and help she's given me, and would recommend Dr. Sheri in a heartbeat to anyone who needs therapy.
