About Me

I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked in the mental health field for 22+ years. I have specialized in treating trauma and disorders of extreme stress, which means I've served all ages, from very young children through retirees. I also have extensive experience with mood disorders, relationship issues, self-esteem, and finding purpose in life. I'm a parent and grandparent, and remember well what it was like in the trenches.

I work hard to establish rapport with clients who are much younger than I am, and my therapy style is warm, comfortable, approachable, and interactive. Whenever possible, I bring creativity and laughter into the therapy process. I want your child to feel safe enough to talk to a stranger, not judged, and to feel accepted even as we work to improve whatever issue is bringing them to therapy. I believe in treating all with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines humanistic, expressive, affect-management skills-based, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

Sometimes it's easier to talk to a stranger than to those who we live with. I am a partner in helping your child feel better, and work with the family as a team.

Shari has been fantastic with my teen daughter! She has been able to connect and work on issues to help prepare her for the future and build skills to work through her anxiety. In just a few months she has given my daughter confidence in her feelings and worked on expressing them.
