Sharon is one of the best therapists I’ve had! She is very supportive, helpful, and listens to my concerns. She offers advice when needed but also knows when I just need to vent, and she has been such a supportive presence for me. I would absolutely recommend Sharon to anybody looking for a skilled, caring, professional, and personable therapist!
