About me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with approximately 15 years experience. My primary focus has been working with children, teens, adults and families. I seek to establish a relationship with a client through a respectful, caring approach and help them identify their strengths and needs to achieve their goals. I also enjoy working with young adults making the transition from adolescence to adulthood and have worked with clients who are struggling with life changes, grief and loss. I begin with a client centered approach but also utilize behavioral & cognitive therapy and mindfulness activities to help manage stress, anxiety and anger. I have also worked with numerous families who have children diagnosed with ADHD, behavioral problems, anger and anxiety.

Sharon is amazing. I originally signed up to get help with OCD but after a session with Sharon I was pointed into a different direction. After getting assessed I was able to get treated for ADD. I feel 100% like myself again, happy and positive. I highly recommend Sharon to anyone just starting therapy or looking for help with being diagnosed.

Sharon is amazing. I've been through many counselors in my adult life and she is one of the best I've ever had. Kind, Patient, meets me where I am. Not afraid to call me out on my BS. Understands my struggles and guides me to my own conclusions. When I've felt like I was completely breaking she was there for me and gave me the extra support I needed. I've made more progress with myself in the last months working with her than I have on my own or with other counselors. 100/10 would highly recommend

I just needed to talk to someone about everything going on with me as well as my past. I just wanted her to listen, and without me having to say anything she knew that. To me that is prime example of what a great counselor is. When I do need feed back she answers honestly and with compassion. I would recommended Sharon to everyone.
