Hi there! My name is Sharon and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts. I have been working in the mental health field for over ten years. I have experience working on an inpatient psychiatric unit, as a crisis clinician in the emergency rooms and in the community, and as an individual outpatient therapist in a mental health clinic. I have worked with clients of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses. I have experience working with mood disorders like Depression, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder, and I have also worked with many people who have serious and persistent mental illnesses like Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, and other psychotic disorders. I enjoy working with clients who have addiction issues, as well, and I have significant experience in this area.
I like to use a solution-focused approach in my counseling work and tend to be pretty straight-forward. Therapy that is person-centered is my goal, so being honest and being genuine are also things that are important to me. A counseling session with me is always judgment-free, and establishing a mutual respect is something that I strive for early in our interactions. I think that for a therapeutic relationship to work, there needs to be trust, and so helping you to trust me will be an important task.
I look forward to getting to know you better and to getting to work on the things that are important to you! Setting goals will be critical to our success, and I am eager to be your biggest cheerleader throughout the process. I am glad you have made the decision to seek some support at this time, and I hope that through working together, you can get your life to where you want it to be!
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, ADHD

Sharon is great. She made me open up and feel comfortable right away which is very hard for me to do with most people. I truly enjoy working with her.
