Pastoral Counselor, MSW
Sharon’s counseling philosophy stems from the notion that God desires to make people whole. She seeks to uncover the larger story of each life and invites clients to discover what it means to have Jesus as their rescuer. She is passionate about helping people become their truest, most authentic selves and delights in directing them towards health, freedom, and healing. Sharon encourages clients to view life’s challenges through the lens of the Gospel as they navigate the path towards healing, together.
Through a variety of therapy methods, Sharon’s practice allows people to look at life clearly and honestly, to work towards restoration and an abundant life. Her clinical focus includes marriage therapy, anxiety and depression, grief and loss and life transitions for women.
Sharon also has a particular passion in counseling ministry families because she knows first hand the special challenges that come with it. She and her pastor husband planted Grace and Peace Church (PCA), a church in the city center of Denver. They have five children, and when not grocery shopping or doing laundry, Sharon loves to hike, bike and kayak.
