Sharon R Peterson, LCSW, CEDS, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Sandy Springs
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 & move beyond unresolved issues or to help find the right path to take. Psychotherapy is a collaborative approach between a therapist and client. I will help you learn more about your condition, your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Which, in turn, will help you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.
I have over 20 years experience working with children ages 4 and up, teens, and adults. I specialize in child/adolescent transition, decreased academic performance, behavior or mood changes, helping parents improve their parenting skills, eating disorders, addiction and addictive behaviors, depression, anxiety, women's issues, grief/loss of a child, miscarriage.
I am an active member of: Georgia Society for Clinical Social Work (GSCSW), Metro Atlanta Therapists' Network (MATN), National Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders (ANAD), National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) , International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) Georgia chapter. Also, a current board member and Founding Director of the nonprofit, Eating Disorder Network of Maryland.
