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 and other addictions. 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.
