I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 18 years of experience working with families and children with almost 10 years working as a therapist. I have worked with clients who struggle with many different challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, PTSD, substance use, anger management issues, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I also have experience working with veterans and individuals in the field of public safety.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating each person with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I believe that each of us are individual and unique, you are the expert as to your story and what is best for you. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapy, interactive feedback, and mindfulness skills; I also have specialized training in the area of grief and loss, trauma informed therapy, and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Sharon is an empathetic and caring counsellor who has helped re-shape my life for the better.
Still in evaluating phase. Only one session so far and that one was really good. I have been able to connect with her and that’s great. Complete trust in her and this process will take time. I am pretty confident both will eventually come.
So far I like Sharon and want to continue with her. It is early though, so we will see. Scheduling sessions may be an issue
Sharon is very easy to talk to and relate to. She is down to Earth and put me at ease- which really helped me feel comfortable processing and talking about everything I've been feeling.
