About me

Hello! My name is Sharon Clark and I have 18 years as a therapist. Therapy is a second career for me, so I have the benefit of offering some helpful information about navigating the "real world," and hopefully, you'll learn my experience is not straight out of the textbooks! Over the past years, I have worked with a very diverse population that struggle with unique perspectives on therapy and how it works. I have worked with court ordered clients as well as those who seek therapy on their own. I have also worked as a substance abuse counselor if that is area you want to get help with. I can interact with you in whatever manner you choose, but video conferencing is my personal preference as it gives you the opportunity to get to know me and vice versa more easily. I can be flexible to help accommodate your work schedule, school, doctor's appointments etc.

Sharon is an amazing therapist one of the best! She listens and helps you realize the hard stuff in a gentle but very effective way. She remembers all the important details, even after you haven't had therapy in such a long time .
