Hello. Reaching out for help with your problems takes courage and trust. The fact that you are looking for a therapist at this vulnerable time in your life is a positive sign that you are ready to move forward.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a Master's level Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP) in the State of Florida. I have been working in the field for 20+ years, and have experience with many types of client issues. I specialize in Co-Occurring Disorders and in Addiction. I work with clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, addiction, grief and loss, trauma, change of life challenges, family and relationship issues.
Research has shown that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is the best predictor for a successful outcome. The most important element of my job is to create a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental environment that helps you explore your feelings and conflicts and achieve a new level of understanding and resolution. By creating an open, trusting and collaborative partnership, and utilizing evidence-based practices, I can help you to make conscious choices and practical behavioral changes that facilitate improved self-esteem; relieve anxiety, depression and social problems; and enhance the quality of your relationships. Together we will also identify your strengths, patterns, and coping skills. I utilize multiple therapeutic techniques while emphasizing self care, and mindfulness practices.
Together, we can create an opportunity for growth using empathy, humor and sound judgement.

She really takes the time to understand me and follow up with issues discussed in previous sessions. Very personable and wise.
Sharon has helped me be more accountable and given me tools to feel with situations I felt were impossible.
Great therapist, Sharon listens to your struggle and offers excellent techniques/ problem solving tips. Love going to her!
I am comletely satisfied with all my interactions with Sharon. She has helped me immensely! She is very exerienced and definitely listens and remembers everything. I have already recommended her to friends and family.
Sharon is very nice and understanding.
I’ve only had a few sessions with Sharon but I definitely feel that she is committed to helping me in my journey and process with the things I came to therapy for. She sent me worksheets that help with the things that I tell her I want help with. She doesn’t force anything on me and bases what she sends and how she helps on what I tell her which I find extremely helpful and validating.
I really enjoy our sessions we have, for a change it feels like someone’s listening.
Sharon is amazing, so supportive. Very grateful to have her.
Great open and non judgemental
Great help to fix the issues I need fixed
Sharon has been extremely helpful. I struggled with self esteem and anxiety issues. She really helped me learn how to have the confidence to make better decisions. I can’t say enough how much Betterhelp has changed my life. I wish that Tricare would cover the cost, then it would be perfect.
Sharon is amazing! She always listens with respect and I appreciate the advice she has to give.
Sharon is awesome! I really like talking to her and she’s great at her job. 10/10!
Sharon is amazing. My first counselor was traumatizing to me, so it was very refreshing to get her. I can tell she cares and listens and I love the safe space she provides.
Had one talk with Sharon and she was very well spoken and helped me understand a few things better. She was willing to listen and gave me great answers and new beginnings. I would recommend Sharon in a heart beat
Sharon is a great counselor! She is available for phone or video calls, and answers messages promptly. She is a great listener and addressed all of my issues within the time we had each week. Speaking with her is very comfortable. I feel that she genuinely cares and I would recommend her to anyone seeking out counseling.
I have had a wonderful experience with Better Help. I have recommended counseling to anyone and everyone I could for years now after taking up psychology studies, but only recently practiced what I preached near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Having a sounding board and confidant has really helped heal some of the wounds from my past, in addition to preparing me for my upcoming international move. The many pieces of my journey to a better mental state was covered over a series of sessions the last few months. I now feel better prepared to deal with stressors in day-to-day life and prevent poor mental states. Thank you, Sharon Zigman, for your reassurances and assistance.
Very strong counselor and would recommend to anyone that is struggling in her department of expertise.
