ShARON DEVRIES

MA, LCMHCA, EMDR & DETUR trained

Sharon’s passion is that every client experiences the healing, restoration and transformation that they desire and deserve. This passion led her to pursue a second career as a professional helper. She received her Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (LCMHC) at Liberty University building upon many years of lived experience. She places the utmost emphasis on being attuned to clients’ needs and creating an atmosphere of understanding, hope, empathy and emotional safety believing that a strong therapeutic relationship is vital to the counseling process.

Practicing from a holistic/integrative foundation, Sharon focuses on the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Her trauma informed experience consists of working with older children/adolescents, adults, families, groups, and couples who have dealt with grief, anxiety, depression, eating-disorders, substance use/addiction, OCD, PTSD, betrayal trauma and attachment issues. She values working with clients from various backgrounds. Sharon believes that our bodies keep the score. Consequently, Sharon focuses primarily on using experiential methods of therapy, rather than only traditional talk therapy, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Somatic Experiencing and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. She has been certified in the Arenas for Change framework for ground based Equine Therapy. Sharon also utilizes DeTUR (Desensitization of Triggers andUrges) for treatment of all forms of addiction. She incorporates several models of evidenced-
based practices such as CBT, EFT and DBT and believes in customizing treatment for each unique client.

Sharon has been married for three decades and has four children. As the mother of an adopted child, she also has a passion for coming alongside adoptive and foster families. Sharon believes that life is not a snapshot, but a full-length film and that present pain can be a necessary catalyst for lifelong transformation and healing.
