About Me

Hi there and congratulations on seeking therapy for your teenager! Teens and adolescents are under more stress than ever before. They face challenges differently than any other time in society. Stress brought on from peer pressure and social media, divorce, bullying and trauma can cause teens to act out in vastly different ways.These stressors can cause young people to struggle with self-image and esteem, rebellion or depression. They find their own cures through eating disorders, self-mutilation, obsessive online addictions, and sometimes substance abuse. I have enjoyed every population that I have worked with as each provide a unique satisfaction to assisting them in achieving their goals. Began private practice in 2015 utilizing a client centered approach to determine treatment plan with the client (Cognitive Behavioral, Trauma Focused, Solution Focused, Relationship and family issues). Treatment approach is based on client's needs and preferences in a collaborate manner.

Written by D.E. on Dec 28, 2021 after therapy with Sharon for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Sharon is very approachable, genuine, and authentic. She knows how to drill down where needed and offers solid advice. I also love that the conversation is fluid and not just about us doing all the talking. Sharon also has a great sense of humor. I think its helpful when you can cry AND laugh with your therapist and with Sharon we can do that.

Coming to this site very new and had my 2nd session with Sharon. She is great at providing feedback in a way that helps me understand the overall picture. I feel confident in her expertise and looking forward to more sessions.
