Sharon Alonso, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Sherman Oaks
Whether or not you have had prior experience with psychotherapy, finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming. You're likely looking for a therapist who feels like a good fit, which is very important, as the relationship between therapist & client is an essential element for a successful journey in therapy. I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience working with people of all ages (children, adults, couples, & families). I provide psychotherapy to help people grow in their understanding of themselves & others, in how they experience & work with their feelings, and in developing & maintaining healthy, satisfying interpersonal relationships.
While I am trained & proficient in a variety of Evidence Based Practices, I work from more of an eclectic psychotherapeutic perspective. I believe in assessing theoretical approaches that best fit the individual, appropriately explaining & discussing treatment options with each client, and work collaboratively to create the most beneficial treatment plan.
I am bilingual (Spanish/English), and comfortable working with clients in both languages. My approach is integrative, combining cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, & other psychotherapy modalities with mind-body techniques & exercises. This blended perspective offers a holistic view of the individual, which helps promote insight & achieve growth in all areas of life.
