Hi, I’m Sharon! You are showing true strength by seeking assistance in your journey to greatness! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Secondary School Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I strive to develop a strong rapport through culturally sensitive support and counseling. Through a non judgmental, compassionate, and caring approach, I seek to view each individual with unconditional positive regard and acceptance. My calm nature and soft approach allows you the time to take it slow when it feels hard to share your deepest emotions and face your toughest challenges.
My areas of interest include career guidance, social/emotional learning, resiliency development, GRIT, relationships, parenting, divorce, trauma, narcissistic abuse, stress management, attachment issues, ADD/ADHD, bereavement and loss. My main therapeutic approaches include Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, Meditation, and Mindfulness. Primary roles in my work have included individual and group counseling for adolescents, adults, and seniors.
Service in hospice care has also had a special place in my heart providing spiritual and grief counseling to patients and their families. In my career as a school counselor, my primary roles have included serving as a social/emotional learning instructor, group work, responsive services, and reviewing psychological testing and educational plans for placement and counseling support. In addition, I have been a resource for teachers, parents and administration.I also have developed action plans to support students and families in need on helpful decision-making during times of stress and transition.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time and building memories with my family and friends. I love to start my day with a cup of tea, journaling, and meditation. Walking and getting out in nature is a priority for me! I also have a special interest in animal-assisted therapy, working as a team with my certified pup. Volunteering and service have been important parts of my life’s work. I believe that together we do better. So let’s start our journey together today!
