My name is Sharon and I am Licensed Independent Social Worker as well as a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Treatment Specialist for Nicotine Dependence. Before shifting into coaching, I was in the mental health field. I have found that my passion is to help support families but from a strengths perspective. I provide parents the support for their own well being and for parenting so they can create strong families and resilient kids. For the past 10 years I have helped working parents carve out time for their families and for self care so they can tackle the joy and challenge of parenting and very busy lives head-on.
My passion is to help my clients leverage their strengths, creativity and resources to become more mindful and self-compassionate. I take a whole person approach and encourage people to use all their senses to move forward in the changes that will increase their vitality and joy so they can parent with intention and compassion.
I know that when my clients are at a point of laying ME off, I have been successful in helping them feel confident that they have cemented their changes for the long haul and don’t need a coach any longer except for occasional tune-ups!

My approach is holistic and I believe that everything in one’s life is interconnected. Thus, if you start out focusing on one area, we will look at your whole life to come up with a unique plan that works for you. I offer different packages. Contact me for more information.
“Working with Sharon was very productive–she helped me define some realistic goals to work toward, and then helped me with weekly steps to achieving these goals. The time spent with her was great because we focused on these goals, and did not allow all the other distractions of life to divert us. The incremental process, as well as the weekly conversations, helped me prioritize these goals, rather than letting them slip in the face of everything else. I really appreciated the life lesson that it is OK to prioritize and spend time on myself, and Sharon’s nonjudgmental focus helped me keep on track, even when I did not meet a weekly goal rather than quitting!” -Claire
“Sharon is an amazing coach! She is remarkably present, and has always been able to take what I am saying and help me figure out what questions I need to ask of myself in order to move forward. I often struggle describing how I am feeling or experiencing something in my life. Sharon is always able to summarize and provide some direction. I greatly appreciate the clarity and insight I have when I finish my sessions.” -Nicole
“Sharon helped me shift my beliefs so that I could accept a new perspective on life/work balance with a demanding job, two young kids and a long commute. Consequently, I have been able to take stressful situations more in stride, and I am much better at keeping my cool with my kids.” –“Jan”
Recently, the potential outcomes from bullying was described in the popular series “13 Reasons Why”. The series dramatized all the possible worse case scenarios from bullying: suicide, the creation of a potential mass shooter and some horrific examples of bullying (I won’t describe in here). Graphic, horrible, sensational! I am not saying that this …
