About me

Hello, my name is Sharon, I am a Licensed Clinical and Macro Master Social Worker (LMSW) from the state of Michigan and currently reside in Southern California. I am also a Certified Anxiety Treatment Profession in Social Distancing. I have 16 years (and counting) of experience with working with family, children, teens, adults and couples.

I believe that growth comes through challenging experiences that ultimately forces us to learn how to move forward in life and to re-evaluate our self-worth. I have had my own personal struggles in life, medically and emotionally, and have learned to work at overcoming them. I am a very understanding person and know that we all need someone to talk to and to find comfort in without being judge, and that is the reason I would like to be that person for you.

I look forward with working with you!

Sharon has been amazing to work with even when I don't know what I'm trying to work on. She is kind and empathetic, and has a no-nonsense approach. Even on a bad day she makes me laugh and I know I can get through whatever is going on. Very highly recommend her, best therapist I've ever had!

Sharon, is a compassionate and empathic individual, who listens carefully and intelligently offers practical means to support you and help you navigate your way through your issues. With no judgement too.

She is a fantastic counsellor and helped me restore my faith in this platform when I was ready to do away with it. FaithfulCounseling must make an effort to ensure that there are more people of the calibre of Sharon offered.
