My name is Sharee Light, and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PhD) with specialty training in clinical neuropsychology. Therefore, I am trained in the emotional and cognitive manifestations of various brain states. I firmly believe in our ability to change our brains by changing our minds! I help clients deal with a variety of issues, ranging from clinical depression and/or anxiety to the emotional and cognitive aftermath of traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementia, and other psychiatric and neurological disorders. I offer cognitive remediation/rehabilitation therapies as a means to address cognitive symptoms, and often this allows a person to then address emotional symptoms that often can be more nagging and difficult to treat.
I am also very interested in generally improving clients’ quality of life. As the mental health field as a whole is increasingly realizing that mental health is more than just the absence of negative emotions, but also entails the discernable presence of positive emotions, I am dedicated to helping clients find joy in their life, however challenging or difficult. Thus, I often incorporate behavioral therapies such as behavioral activation, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and positive psychology techniques to enrich the experience of everyday happiness.
