Sharon is great and doesn't push on areas I may not be fully ready to dive deep into and all of our conversations have been wonderful.

I love having Sharon as my counselor. She listens and comes up with useful strategies to address the issue I’m currently addressing. . Good solid advise while being sensitive.
