Sharon specializes in attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sleep issues. For the past 6 years she has been seeing primarily children and adolescents and also adult clients in an outpatient setting for psychiatric evaluations, diagnosis, and medication management.

Sharon completed her master’s and post master’s degrees from Wilkes University. She is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). She began her career working as a registered nurse at a long-term state psychiatric hospital and a state prison. Her career path seemed to align with seeing patients that required mental health intervention. She acquired much mental health experience at those jobs and that is the reason she pursued the psychiatric focus for her higher education.

During the psychiatric evaluation Sharon seeks a thorough understanding of your symptoms, past and present, in order to identify potential causes, including any medical or biological factors that could have caused the issues you are having. She will discuss past medications that you have tried and therapies that have worked and not worked for you. She will discuss potential side effects if medication is prescribed, and your feelings about taking medications. She will provide an appointment that is relaxed and low-key so you can remember all that you would like to discuss. She will listen attentively. Sometimes the tension of having a mental health appointment with a provider causes an enormous amount of stress. Sharon believes that building a trusting rapport with her clients is a very important part of success in treatment.

He is caring and nonjudgmental and believes that creating a safe space is of the utmost importance so that clients can feel free to be who they are and the therapeutic relationship can flourish.

Michael earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from College of the Holy Cross and his Master of Arts in Music Therapy from Drexel University. In addition to his music therapy work, he has undergone training specific to trauma recovery, cultural awareness, adolescents, and the LGBTQAI+ population. He has worked in crisis center, drug and alcohol rehab, inpatient psychiatric, school, and transitional housing settings with children, adolescents, and adults.

Michael's training in ART allows him to support clients who are motivated to change but reluctant to share about any struggles they may have, ranging from depression and anxiety to substance abuse to complex trauma. Michael's music therapy training allows clients to use live and recorded music to achieve non-musical goals such as increasing self-esteem, coping with depression and anxiety, recovering from substance abuse, and mastering symptoms of trauma. Michael believes that music can say for us what we often struggle to say for ourselves; to this end, music therapy is ideal for people who struggle to express their feelings verbally. Even so, Michael is adept at facilitating talk-therapy sessions to meet the needs of the client and incorporates cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques into his work.
