I enjoy helping bright, creative people who feel passionate about life, yet feel stuck or dissatisfied with some aspect of their life. Intelligence, ambition and success are often accompanied by unexpected challenges and difficulties. Fulfillment in one area of one's life doesn't guarantee satisfaction in other areas. I've had excellent academic training (Yale, UC Berkeley), and extensive clinical training. The breadth and depth of my training allows me to tailor a treatment plan to the specific needs of each client or couple. My orientation is relational and psychodynamic, informed by research on human development and psychotherapy. Visit my website for more information.

Being mentored has played an enormous role in my ongoing personal and professional development. Therapy becomes a mentoring experience for many of my clients. I deeply enjoy working with mental health professionals. I lead a therapy group that consists (largely) of MH professionals or graduate students. I also lead a consultation group for licensed psychotherapists.

I'm interested in helping clients develop a balance between professional and family life. I appreciate the challenges inherent in this process --and the rewards that can be derived from pursuing balance! I love leading an ongoing, diverse therapy group that helps individuals address relationship and self-esteem issues.

Jeff Sharp's Groups

Ongoing adult therapy group

This ongoing group consists of mental health professionals or graduate students who wish to enhance their personal growth and development. It is a very stable group whose participants are interested in expanding their ability to trust, support and gently challenge one another. Emphasis is placed on creating and maintaining a safe context in which individuals develop greater self-awareness and self-esteem while also addressing interpersonal and relationship challenges. This leads to the deveopment of transferrable skills which enrich their outside relationships. The group seeks to integrate humor, compassion, assertiveness and empathy.
