Sharmaine D Barnes, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Stockton
As a Christian therapist, I work within a framework grounded not only in psychology, but also the Word of God. I offer an empathetic ear, a caring heart, and a commitment to help walk you through the healing process from your past or present hurt and pain. I consider counseling as my ministry and am passionate about the work I do. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, let me work with you to achieve your goals.
My Master of Arts Degree in Marital & Family Therapy with a specialization in African American Family Studies provides me with a unique understanding of mental health issues pertaining to African Americans. However, my services are not limited to African Americans and I serve a very diverse client population.
I'm a retired law enforcement/corrections officer; therefore I have a unique understanding of the issues experienced by first responders and victims of crime. I respect and value all of my clients and thank God for the lives he has allowed me to touch.
