More about me
Licensing: LCSW, CSAC Years in Practice: 6 State: Virginia
Hello, my name is Sharon M. Black and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with an undergraduate degree in sociology /criminal justice and graduate degree in social work (MSW). I am licensed in the state of Virginia and have been providing outpatient therapy for over 5 years with an abundance of life experience that can benefit many of my clients. In addition, I have experience working with clients dealing with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and stress, childhood traumas, PTSD, relationships and family conflict. I am also a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) and have worked and helped clients with Substance use disorders. I further have experience in facilitating groups for Substance abuse/relapse prevention, anger management, conflict resolution, and parenting. In addition, I am a certified prescreener and specializes in dealing with Crisis situation and De-escalation.
My counseling style is open and honest but warm and relatable. I like to focus on mind, body and spirit; as a person needs to feel whole and well in all three areas. I practice in my scope of expertise that is bond by my own ethical principles as well as a professional code of ethics.
I look forward to collaborating with you so that you can live your best and most productive life.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
