About me

To all my Prospective Clients:

Hello, I am Sherry ("Share") Friedman,

I am a National l Board Certified Counselor (NCC), clinically licensed as a mental health counselor (LCMHC) in the states of Rhode Island, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I have over eight years of experience working as a psychotherapist from a Jungian (transformational and psychodynamic) clinical orientation.

My counseling approach is holistic and multi-dimensional. This means exploring the biopsychosocial, emotional, cultural, energetic, spiritual, and cosmological influences that may be creating stress, anxiety, grief, emotional trauma, relationship issues, and career challenges.

In my background as a nurse, doula, and energy healer, I have also helped support women with postpartum depression and parents experiencing adjustment issues associated with their changing roles.

As a psychotherapist with a warm, interactive counseling style, I tend to gravitate toward clinical assessment and listening skills based on "Listening with HEART" (Healing, Energy, Awareness, Resiliency, Transformation).

I believe strongly in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. As an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), I am skilled at creating a safe space for my HSP clients and empowering them to discover and embrace their gifts of compassion and empathy with healthy boundaries.

The ultimate goal of all therapy is transformation, so that we can exist as the highest, best version of ourselves. This typically involves finding one's life purpose and who we incarnated on this planet to become. Deeper self-discovery and getting to the root cause of pain requires a rare form of bravery. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and take that first step toward change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

All the best,
Sherry Ann Friedman, NCC, LCMHC, MA, MS Ed., MSCC

Sherry (Share) is truly amazing in what she does. I’m shocked that BetterHelp got me the perfect match on the first try. From our first session, she has been more than helpful. Thank you.

Sherry is truly a special therapist. I have had several therapist throughout my life - depending on different locations I was in and different events taking place in my life. Finding a therapist that you resonate with can be such a daunting task. I truly feel a higher power brought me to this therapist. She challenges me, supports me, and always leaves me pondering things we discuss after our sessions. I feel very comfortable when speaking with her. She is the perfect mix of scientifically back evidence and free-form that I have been looking for. I’m very pleased !
