Sherry Walling is a clinical psychologist, speaker, podcaster, author, and mental health advocate.

She is graduate of the University of California, Davis and Fuller School of Psychology. She has a PhD in clinical psychology and master’s degrees in both psychology and theology and completed research fellowships at Yale University School of Medicine and the National Center for PTSD in Boston.

She spent several years working with veterans before going on to become the director of clinical training at House Psychiatric Clinic in Fresno, California.

Her company, ZenFounder, helps entrepreneurs and leaders navigate transition, rapid growth, loss, conflict, or any manner of complex human experience.

Her soon-to-be-released new book, Touching Two Worlds, Sherry explores the inner workings of her own grief—and leaves a kind of hand-drawn map for those rebuilding hope in the aftermath of loss.

Sherry and her husband, Rob, reside in Minneapolis where they spend their time driving their children to music lessons. She has also been known to occasionally perform as a circus aerialist.

She hosts the ZenFounder podcast, which has been called a “must listen” by both Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine and has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times. She is also the host of Mind Curious, a podcast exploring innovations in mental health care via psychedelics.

Her best-selling book,The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Keeping Your Shit Together, combines the insight and warmth of a therapist with the truth-telling mirth of someone who has been there.
