Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls... - Khalil Gibran
A Little Bit About Sharron
I’m a liberator. I know that’s a bold statement, but it’s who I am and what I have been put on this earth to do – guide people out of (You fill in the blank) and into a place of freedom. It breaks my heart when I encounter people who are stuck in their past, stuck in their noisy heads filled with negative self-talk, or stuck in relationships (of any type) that aren’t nourishing. I don’t believe that we are here to live in bondage... not to our thoughts, feelings, history or current circumstances. Furthermore, I don’t believe that your path to freedom is outside of you. I believe, it’s ingrained into your DNA – it just needs the light shone upon it. I’ve been there, facing situations that I did not think I would live through. I’ve been stuck in the nasty internal dialogue in my head, desperate for a caring voice. I’ve felt captive to a life that I did not want. I learned to fight from within, which compelled me to help others do the same. I recognize that my journey is not the same as yours – but it would be an honor to support you in finding your own path and breaking free of all the imposed and self-imposed limitations and hardships that are preventing you from living a fulfilling life. I don’t want to sell you a “hype dream”. I can’t make you feel happy; but if you are sick of feeling trapped and you are willing to do the work, I am ready and able to support you. All you have to do is show up, and let the journey begin.
Now for the technical stuff….
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with two master degrees (Wesleyan University, 2005 and Cambridge College, 2015) and over 13 years of experience helping people. I have worked with a number of populations including men incarcerated in a maximum-level correctional institution, mothers whose children have been removed or were at risk of being removed from their care, and children in the foster care system. The theme of my work across all of those populations has been helping those individuals in defining the lives they want and supporting them in doing the necessary work to get it. I have also provided (both at a non-profit organization, and independently) supervision to other professionals in the field who are either working towards licensure or who feel they would benefit from case consultation and guidance as they work towards being their best professional selves.
