I am an independently licensed social worker in both Ohio (LISW) and Kentucky (LCSW) as well as a PhD in social work. I have 25 years of experience working as a therapist, clinical leader and teacher and strive to learn something new each day. I have worked with patients with a variety of challenges including substance abuse, anxiety, depression, mood swings, psychotic episodes, parenting and relationship challenges and attention and focus difficulties. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and serve first responders who need assistance following traumatic events.
My therapy style is welcoming and inquisitive. I believe in treatment which focuses on finding solutions to troubling symptoms and holistic approaches without judgement or labels. My approach combines a variety of methods including strengths based, person centered, brief solution focused, cognitive-behavioral, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma focused work. I will listen to you to gain information about what you are experiencing and work with you to develop a plan that is focused on minimizing or alleviating troubling symptoms and experiences that you are having which negatively impact your quality of life.
Congratulations in taking the first step in finding someone to guide you on this journey. I look forward to working with you!

I am so grateful to have been paired with Sharon! She has walked me through various theraputic modalities that have absolutely changed my life and my perspective of myself. She is helping me reach my mental health goals, she listens, understands and guides. I highly recommend Sharon, and BetterHelp to anyone looking to start their healing journey!
I strongly believe in finding the right fit when it comes to a therapist and, for me, Sharon is that fit. She provides practical tools, allows me to steer the conversation, and is willing to try new tools. 10/10 recommend her.
Sharon listens and offers suggestions when appropriate. She makes me feel validated in some of my feelings that i struggle with.
Great listener and offer great ways to help me cope and grow as a person
Sharon is incredible, she is a great listener and provided me with excellent tips. I have a busy schedule and her schedule is perfect for my busy lifestyle. I loved that she was passionate about helping me.
I genuinely can not say enough good things about Sharon. The amount of progress that I've made in such a short time is unbelievable truly. She is everything I could have asked for in a therapist and I've gone from feeling completely disassociated from myself to feeling confident and happy again in just 2 months!
She's quite kind and she actually listens to what I'm saying and gives me multiple options for going forward with my treatment.
Very pleased. Very professional and empathetic yet down to earth
I have really enjoyed working with Ms. Simmons. She makes me feel heard and then provides relevant feedback and information to help me work through/process situations/feelings/emotions. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a provider.
Sharon listens and gives appropriate feedback. Her digital responses are timely and comforting. When she recommends homework or exercises she sends them to me immediately during or after our sessions.
Absolutely love her !
I’m so thankful for Sharon. I feel like I’ve been placed with the right person for me. She’s empathetic and kind and has really been helping me.
