I work with Sherif remotely and it has been incredibly helpful for my well-being. I always leave feeling very at ease and motivated. Because he is great at explaining things, I am able to understand concepts and apply them long after we talk and am able to extend that feeling of ease and motivation.

Dr. Zaher is very accommodating and worked wonders with my teenage daughter, who was way too cool to see a therapist BUT would see a Sports Psycholoist! We are very grateful that he is here for us.

Judy M. – Sep 24, 2019
Having tried out multiple other therapists, I would say Dr. Zaher is one of the best I have encountered. It is evident that he truly cares for the wellbeing of his patients. This is a man who puts his heart and soul into his job. He is typically very accessible; he will sometimes even pick up the phone past business hours. I do not know where I would be without his help and support. I am truly grateful for everything he has done for me.
