My wife and I love Dr Shari! She listens and gives us answers that help us identify and approach challenges in our relationship. Her strategies have helped a lot.

Dr. Shari is an amazing therapist. I feel very heard when speaking with her. She treats me with nothing but respect, compassion, and kindness and challenges me when I need to be challenged.

Dr. Shari is so very kind and patient with my boyfriend and me! She makes us think but also makes us laugh. This is my bf’s first experience with therapy, and Dr. Shari is making it an experience that he appreciates rather than avoids. ❤️
