Therapy and Counseling for Women in San Jose
Welcome to Sharon Martin Counseling and Personal Growth!
I’m passionate about helping women feel good about themselves and their relationships.
Do you feel empty, alone, or lost? Many of the women I work with long for connection – with themselves and others – but feel unfulfilled. They thought their accomplishments, ability to be strong and independent, or pleasing others would bring acceptance and love, but it hasn’t. They still feel like there’s something fundamentally wrong with them, but they don’t know what.
They find themselves struggling with self-esteem, confidence, and body image. Their relationships are out of balance as they end up as care takers or stuck in relationships where they aren’t appreciated or heard (sometimes with partners who’ve cheated or drink too much).
They often try to cope by pushing their feelings and needs away. But emotions pile up and eventually pour out (as anger or crying or even as health problems). They feel like their lives and emotions are out of control. They’re overwhelmed and stressed.
Does this sound familiar? I want you to know that you aren’t alone. I can help you find yourself again. I specialize in counseling for women to manage stress and anxiety, and overcome perfectionism, co-dependency and people-pleasing. After struggling with infertility, miscarriage, and neonatal loss myself, I also provide compassionate counseling to individuals and couples navigating this heart breaking road.
It’s time for you to come first. Taking care of yourself isn’t selfish. It’s necessary if you’re going to be healthy, happy, and accepted. Committing to therapy means you’re setting aside at least one hour a week to focus on you. Therapy with me is both supportive and challenging. It’s important to feel heard and understood, but I will also help you implement change, create positive habits, and rediscover your true self.
I invite you to call, email, or schedule online. I’d love to help you heal and create the life you crave.Make an Appointment
