What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a woman of color, I understand the unique issues of social characterizations and the intersectionality of social strata, ethnicity, and culture.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Sharon Fernandez is a Licensed Professional Counselor with nearly 3 years of counseling experience empowering survivors of trauma, especially women and teens. She also specializes in assisting clients who are experiencing PTSD, depression, ADHD, anxiety, eating disorders, and sexual or physical assaults. Sharon's therapeutic orientation includes client-centered, relational, spiritual, dialectal (DBT), and cognitive (CBT) therapeutic methods. As a former military service member, Sharon understands the unique stress and severe challenges related to the military environment, deployments, combat, and re-acclimation to civilian society. Sharon wants to help clients develop healthy coping mechanisms to reduce negative reactions and distress related not only to trauma experiences but in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well. Sharon seeks to offer every client encouragement and transparency in every session and will partner with you to implement a personalized treatment plan to improve your mental health and sense of wellbeing.
