We've only had 2 sessions, but I think Sharon really understands where I'm coming from & she asks the appropriate questions. She's easy to talk to, so I feel I can open up to her.

In the month that Sharon and I have worked together not only have I felt super validated by her but I have also grown so much within myself. This was a huge milestone in my self love journey and I feel entirely better now than how I started. I’m so grateful I got assigned to her as my therapist. I hope to return someday to BetterHelp and hopefully to her. In the meantime, thank you Sharon for all that you’ve taught and given me!

Sharon is lovely. She listens and understands. She helps reframe the situation in a way that you can see it with fresh eyes- much needed when you’ve lived with a problem for years and haven’t been able to resolve it for yourself. I feel safe talking to her.

Sharon has made herself available to me in ways that I've never seen from a counselor before. In addition to our weekly video chats, she checks on me via email during the week and responds with thoughtful suggestions for me to work on before our next meeting. Her insights have helped me uncover things that have been burdening me for many years. I am thankful for her expertise and her ability to establish a supportive relationship quickly. I am very thankful I was matched with her.

I feel that Sharon is a very kind, but also just demanding enough of you to make yourself better in a short amount of time.
She listens to what I have to say and tailors her responses in a way that resonate with me.
I am really looking forward to our future sessions and can’t recommend her enough.
