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. Starting at $65 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.

Sharon is a great therapist and person. We have some similarities in the way that we think and it made our sessions flow so much easier.

Overall

I had my skepticism about therapy and enjoyed self reflecting. However this pandemic made me realize that I need help. Sharon has been tremendous help. I feel like I can trust her and she listens. She’s gentle and direct. I enjoy our sessions and can see the difference they’ve made. It’s only been a few sessions but I already feel like she is the family member that I needed, the friend that I needed. I would highly recommend. She’s warm and welcoming. Sometimes you can feel like a mess and judged but with her I feel safe with her and trust her with the truth. I look forward to opening up more. This is my first experience with therapy and she’s made such a positive impression.

Overall

I only got to spend a short amount of time with Sharon, unfortunately. She is attentive, kind, and gets right to the point. She explained things to me in a way that I had not heard before, even as someone who has gone to therapy numerous times in the past. She is wonderful and I highly, highly recommend her.

K.A.·Nov 02, 2021

Overall

Sharon is absolutely the best. She really listens to you and doesn’t make you feel like you or your feelings don’t matter. She has an aura that makes it easy for you to open up and in sessions it feels like a conversation rather than an awkward encounter. She is definitely my motivator as well and is challenging me in my journey. 10/10 would recommend!!

Sharon is wonderful! She is down to earth and relatable.

I have just recently started sessions with Sharon and I am already feeling very good about the work we are doing. She is patient, kind, and understanding. She is my cheerleader and that is just what I need right now. We do not live in the traumas of the past, we look to the happiness of the future.
