I have been a mental health therapist for over 24 years. As a therapist, I have found people want to feel empowered to manage their own life. I work with clients to learn to manage emotions and negative thoughts that are running their lives. I teach clients to learn to respond to people and situations and not to react to them. I am a DialecticaI Behavior Therapist (DBT) . I have also received extensive training in cognitive and behaviors therapies to work with people who experience depression and anxiety. In addition, I completed my dissertation on the attention system and working memory. This makes me qualified to evaluate and help people who experience learning disabilities and problems with their attention and memory.

My hands on work as a therapist has been done in rural communities and in community mental health centers. This has given me the opportunity to work as a generalist to help people who have a wide range of issues including trauma and people who are suffering with an eating disorder.

I run Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills groups. These groups help clients act mindfully, manage emotions, tolerate distress, and feel effective with saying no and asking for what they want. I offer programs to change working memory deficits due to ADHD, brain injury, or to help people enhance their working memory.

Sharon Marie Myer's Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Groups

The groups are DBT skills groups. DBT is a therapy that empowers people to create balance in their lives. There is a middle path and walking this middle path is the way to manage the emotions and thoughts that are uniquely controlling your life. The four skill sets we focus on are Mindfulness, Emotional Regulation, Distress Tolerance, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Clients are given solid skills to live their best life.
