About Sharon von Lentz, Psy. D.
Hi, I am Dr. Sharon von Lentz. You can call me Dr. Sharon. I have over 35 years of experience in the mental health industry. I really enjoy helping children and adults.
I provide individual therapy and work with children over 6 years of age, adolescents, and adults with behavioral, personality, and emotional concerns.
Choosing to seek therapy can be a difficult and stressful decision, one that takes a lot of personal strength and courage. Therapy can help both children and adults who may be having trouble managing their own feelings or often feeling angry, sad, or anxious. No matter the age, therapy may be the best choice to help work toward meaningful changes.
I am here to here to help in any way I can, It’s my goal to create an environment that feels comfortable and safe. I work with my clients and address their specific needs and goals. I understand that each person’s personal journey is unique, so my approach is personalized to fit each individual’s specific needs and give tools needed to meet their daily demands. I use a variety of treatment methods in order to equip each person with ways to overcome their current difficulties.
