About Sharon

It’s been said that “People don’t change.” My experience as a therapist and a human being refutes this statement. With awareness, intention, and determination, people and relationships are capable of amazing, positive transformation!


Would you like to make a positive change in your life? Do you need help working through relationship difficulties or transition? I’ve followed a lifelong passion for helping others by drawing from my own life struggles, experience, and professional training, I can offer tools and insights to guide you along the way as well as therapeutic approaches such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Hypnosis–providing results that will have a positive impact for you and those around you.

My ultimate goal is to help you find the answers I know you have within you, identify what’s keeping you stuck or distressed, and choose how to make positive change. My approach is gentle but direct, and my clients tell me I’m easy to talk to and they feel deeply cared for. At the same time, I’m an action oriented therapist, and I challenge you to be honest with yourself and examine how you may be sabotaging possibilities for a happier life. And I encourage laughter – it has such a strong healing force.

If you’re reading this, then you’ve started the process of positive change, and I urge you to take the next step today. Please call me at 310.871.4845 or e-mail me at sharon@sharoncoulter.com. We can determine if I’m a good fit for you and if so set up an appointment at your convenience.
