About Me

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. 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.

Written by N.I. on Nov 21, 2021 after therapy with Sharon for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Sharon is knowledgeable, approachable and understanding. She has been a phenomenal resource as a third party to bounce things off of. As we have a strong marriage, with a few things we needed to work on, we found Sharon’s guidance to lead us in paths of self discovery and growth where we didn’t even know it was needed. As a result, we are communicating differently and improving an already strong relationship. This has been such a wonderful and eye opening journey, and we are SO HAPPY to have Sharon to work with.

Sharon is a wonderful therapist, and I felt an immediate contention with her.

Sharon is very personable and great at establishing almost immediate rapport. We enjoy spending our time with her each session and feel that we come away with at least one useful strategy to try.
