About Me

Hi! My name is Sharon and 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 Financial Social Worker and a Certified Anxiety Treatment Profession in Social Distancing. In 2003, I have earned my Master of Social Work degree from Wayne State University and in 2013 my certificate in Geriatrics also from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I have 16 years (and counting) of experience with working with family, children, teens, adults and couples.

I strongly 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 to working with you!

Written by S.A. on May 31, 2021 after counseling with Sharon for 2 months

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.
