As practice owner and director, Sharon's focus is on a holistic and evidenced base approach to treating teens, adults, seniors, couples and families with complex mental health issues, couples issues, and/or medical issues.  

Working collaboratively with family systems, psychiatrists, and primary care providers, Sharon approaches the issues of treatment by incorporating a whole system approach.

Motivating patients to overcome obstacles to recovery from psychiatric and medical illnesses lead to the development of a pneumonic called MINDFUL CARE, where patients learn balance their lives through a collaborative treatment plan.
