“Clinicians are honored with the most sacred of tasks: to bear witness to clients’ difficulties and to attend compassionately to their needs.”
– Arielle Schwartz

Counseling Style

Sharon’s counseling style is trauma-informed, person-centered, warm, and nurturing. Her approach is grounded in building authentic connections with clients to establish a space of trust and safety. She incorporates an integrative approach using mindfulness based cognitive strategies to support each client in identifying their goals for therapy, process their struggles and difficulties, and to accompany clients on their journey to tap into the strengths and potential they already possess.
