My Approach to Helping
Sharon R Peterson, LCSW, CEDS has over twenty years of service as a licensed clinician.
"Making the decision to begin therapy is not an easy one. But, it can be one of the best decisions you can make to empower yourself and move beyond unresolved issues or to help find a better path to take. Entering therapy can be a challenging decision, but it can be one of the best choices you make. Therapy can even help you rebuild your life through a collaboration between client and therapist."
I am a trained clinical social worker, specializing in work with children over the age of four, tweens, adolescents, adults, and families. I work in a private practice located in metro Atlanta, and have been licensed since 1998.
