About Sharon

As your Therapist, you and I will form a team and together, we will find your personal path.

 

What I love about working with people who are recovering and healing from difficult experiences is the strength based approach I use. I help clients to find and use their own available positive resources to remind them to look at where their path began, and where it can go. There is a lot of power in finding the strength within you and harnessing it towards healing. That, and the progress clients are making while healing from their experiences is what inspires me to do this work.

 

I am a solution focused therapist with a compassionate approach. My therapeutic attitude is non-judgmental, supportive and solution oriented. As an Israeli Army veteran, a mom, and a person who has changed careers, I know that life presents opportunities to make changes, to take a leap of faith and explore something new. My experience has helped me understand and incorporate a gentle, kind approach in my work as a psychotherapist. 

 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist in the Main Line just outside of Philadelphia, PA. I earned my Masters is Social Services with a clinical concentration from Bryn Mawr College. I provide Individual and Group therapy for adults.

 

I have clinical experience in both in-patient and out-patient settings. I have training and expertise include: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) - Certified Therapist and Consultant (EAC), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), Certified Experiential Therapist (CET II) and Psychodrama. Experiential Therapy allow clients to move beyond words and look at a problem and its solution in action. My work using Experiential Addiction Treatment has been published in the Journal of Addiction & Addictive Disorders. 

 

Currently, I split my practice between teaching EMDR in basic training (Facilitator) and my private practice in Exton and Bryn Mawr, PA.

 

My certifications include:
