Sharon was very attentive and personable. She connected on a level with me like no other professional has before. I would highly recommend her to others. She made me feel like I was included in my treatment plan, all while including her expertise. She is great!

I cannot recommend Sharon B. of Renewing Mindsets enough!!! Sharon helped me out of a really dark place and I truly look forward to our appointments because she makes you feel like you’re talking to your best friend!! She is funny, empathetic, and works to really collaborate with you and your needs rather than just talking at you and doing what she thinks is best! Again, I cannot rave about her more! I’m so grateful to have found this incredible provider!!

It’s been a breath of fresh air working with Sharon. She truly listens and works with the highest level of professionalism. Sharon not only wants to get the the root of the problem, she also thinks about the entire picture before making a decision. I highly recommend Renewing Mindsets!
