About me

Hello-

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in the helping profession for 8 years.

When I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 1996, I worked as a worker’s compensation adjuster for 12 years. The money was great, but I hated working in that field. Eventually, the company I was working for downsized, so I was laid off. From there, I was lost and didn’t know what to do. Should I continue to stay in the same line of work for the next 12 years, dreading to get out of the bed every day for the money, or should I find a career that will help me utilize my own personal experiences and education to make a difference in the lives of others? I chose to follow my heart. When I took my first counseling class, I knew being a counselor was my calling in life. This is what I was born to do. I realized the most important thing in the world is not how much money you make; it’s about enjoying the work you do. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t enjoy making money, but I know I wasn’t happy. Being a counselor makes me feel alive, full of hope, and purpose. Educating clients on how to manage their mood disorders, stressors, or providing guidance to some of the most difficult challenges in a person’s life is what I live for.

I want you to know that I am here for you. We can face life’s challenges together.

Sincerely,

Sharon Esters

Literally, the easiest person to talk to. She has made this season of change bearable when I was at my breaking point.

Even though I just started, I feel like therapy has helped me. So far Sharon has helped me and shown me ways of understanding things in a different way. I feel safe sharing with her and I always have a positive experience.
