I have experienced Sharon’s work during the advanced training for EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy) in 2014. Sharon is a warm, open and engaged therapist with a lot of life experience and good clinical intuitions. She has a solid understanding of the attachment perspective in couples work and of the impact of trauma on people’s lives. She is also highly sensitive to cultural differences and issues of social and racial injustice.”
