Therapist Sharon Jordan Photo

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)/therapist licensed in New York State. Over the past five years, I have provided therapy to a diverse group of clients dealing with depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, parenting problems, and attachment-related traumas. I have also supported many people who have experienced sexual trauma, physical abuse, or emotional abuse. Prior to working as a therapist, I worked for six years in an evidence-based, behavior modification program that stabilized families in crisis who were considering out-of-home placement for their child due to interpersonal, societal and environmental stressors.

My therapy style is warm, client-focused, and empathetic. I believe that dignity, compassion, and respect are at the heart of a transformative therapeutic relationship and that with the right support, people can achieve their desired outcome. My approach is strengths-based, client-centered, evidence-informed, trauma-focused and solution-focused.

It takes courage to face our reality and to take the steps to connect to a therapist that is a good fit. When you do, I would welcome the opportunity to support you.

I look forward to working with you!

Very skilled in dealing with anxiety issues.
Sharon approaches an analytical approach to the issues, breaking them down to find their nature and course.
There is a confidence about her that calms you down in the worse moments.
Thank you for your support Sharon !

Sharon is a respectful and professional therapist. I have felt listened to, she has questioned gently but insightfully and has taught me a lot about why I am going through the difficulties I face. I am glad I found her!

Sharon is very kind and empathetic. She’s helped me through many situations. I don’t feel judged by her or feel bad for what I’m thinking or speaking about around her. I’m very thankful and appreciative of her.

Sharon Jordan and I have had a great relationship and is easy to talk to. Compared to other therapists I have used in the past, Sharon is by far more open and listens to my concerns.

In the short time I’ve been working with Sharon Jordan, she has my whole situation totally dialed in. She understands what’s been going on with me, is extremely empathetic and kind, and I trust that she is an expert in the type of therapy she is providing me. She listens, asks the right questions, and offers both immediate support and support after the session via messaging. She’s amazing! I highly recommend her as a therapist.

Let's just say I had tried other counselors before and there was not change and I hated them. Sharon makes me feel like I'm doing progress and that things will work out. I wish I could have more sessions with her per week.

I've been working with Sharon for a little over a month now and am so happy I selected her! She's an active listener who is empathetic and very patient. Her advise and suggestions are balanced and encouraging. I feel comfortable talking to her and look forward to our sessions every week!

Sharon is a wonderful therapist and I feel so lucky to have found her. She is intelligent and practical in her approach, while still being deeply compassionate and allowing me the time and space to express myself. She has been such a help to me already and I have only been with her for a few months! I always feel very understood and heard and she usually picks up on things I hadn’t even realized about myself or situation too! Thank you so much Sharon for being such a kind and helpful therapist, I am sure I am not alone in feeling so grateful to have your help!!

Sharon has been wonderful to talk to and is effective at helping me set boundaries and learn to understand myself during moments of conflict in just the 4 weeks I spent with her! She makes you feel listened to and works to make you understand the whys and hows of situations to better improve oneself. It was a lovely experience and I'm glad to have had her for my first time in therapy.

After speaking with Sharon, I would end our sessions with ah moments. It was like seeing the situation from a new perspective and realizing I might have had blinders on or tunnel vision before. I am grateful for the time as it has helped me work toward healing and acceptance. I am growing with guidance in areas I felt
I kept hitting my head on a wall.

The number one quality I was hoping for in my therapist is for them to be a good listener. It's not easy for me to open up and be vulnerable. Sharon is a great listener who takes the time to understand exactly what you are feeling and going through, and then provides feedback and advice in the most supportive and eloquent way. Another thing I admire about Sharon and am grateful for is her ability to trigger you to cognitively work your way through your thoughts and emotions and reflect on them. At several times I felt that I was rediscovering aspects of my self, which is necessary for me to overcome the root causes of my anxiety. Thank you Sharon and BetterHelp.

Ms. Jordan is a remarkable counselor; I am grateful to be working with her. She is an insightful, thoughtful, and compassionate therapist. I am learning a great deal from our sessions, and I am very optimistic about the current (and future) progress I've made under her guidance. I am no stranger to therapy; based on my personal experiences, Ms. Jordan is a safe, knowledgeable, and kind professional to be paired with. She has a great deal of wisdom to share, and I look forward to our future meetings.
