Sharkea Hicks is a great therapist. She helped me to understand reasons I maybe feeling the way I do about my primary concern. Also, she gives me realistic first steps to move through my experience.

Amazing therapist

Written on May 23, 2023 after therapy with Sharkea for 4 months

Sharkea is absolutely wonderful! My daughter looks forward to her sessions with her each week and I can see a huge improvement in her mental health and confidence level. Sharkea is also extremely responsive to me, as the parent, any time I have a question or concern, all while protecting my daughter's privacy. I highly recommend Sharkea for teen counseling!
