About Me

Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor in Houston, Texas with over 5 years experience working in a variety of settings such as inpatient, private practice, and schools. My experience in private practice and inpatient counseling has allowed me to refine my skills in many areas. These areas include individual counseling, family counseling, as well as group counseling. I have worked with children as young as 3 and adults at to the age of 85. My particular interest lie in working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or may be just unsure where to take their life next. I am currently a school counselor and am interested to working with adolescents on a deeper level.

My treatment approach is client centered and solution focused. My belief is that all clients are unique and hold the answers to their issue. With guidance, every person has the ability to navigate through their struggles. I work towards providing a safe place where clients feel comfortable and understood. A good foundation in a therapeutic relationship relies on trust. I work toward building a trusting relationship through being warm, caring, and nonjudgmental. I am trained in solution focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectal behavior therapy. Being that each person is unique and have their own needs, I work to form a treatment plan in coordination with the client so that we can have the most successful counseling relationship possible.

Congratulations on taking the first step in establishing a therapeutic relationship. It takes so much courage to seek counseling. I look forward to accompanying my clients through their journey.

Written by G.I. on Jun 04, 2021 after counseling with Sharae for 6 months on issues concerning family conflicts

Sharae was the best counselor I’ve had through BetterHelp this far. She was respectful of me and asked me questions to help me dive deeper and explain.

I’ve only been with Sharae James for a short time, but am highly impressed with our sessions! Her response time is fabulous and I appreciate her objective advice/questions that make me think deeper.

Sharae has been amazing in listening to my fears and stressors and helping me see things from a different perspective to help me learn to let go and focus on the importance things in motherhood. She’s been great for me and so easy to talk to!

So far everything we talk about is amazing I’ve been doing this session for about two weeks now and the task exercises and talks really have been helping me. Sharae is THE BEST!
