As a therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor in the Lawrenceville area of Pittsburgh, I provide individual therapy, relationship counseling, group therapy, and family counseling to help clients find self-compassion, confront issues of shame, and make more loving choices--specialized work includes addiction, spirituality, sexuality, relationships, fear, grief, self-compassion, and shame.

In working with individuals, identifying shame and cultivating self-compassion becomes a part of the process. With increased self-compassion, people can get out of their own way, get on their own side, practice acceptance, and begin to have the courage to change and heal.

In working with couples, my job is to "work myself out of a job." Couples are invited to reveal themselves; received with compassion; taught new concepts, skills and strategies; and invited to choose to love. Premarital counseling is also available.

Sherri Williams's Groups

GROUP PAUSED - Ending the Fight with Shame

This work involves gently & compassionately addressing the shame-based messages that we have learned, swallowed, accepted, & projected. In helping people to heal from these self-hating thoughts, release emotional pain, & make more loving choices, I have come to believe that a physical process can assist in this healing & learning. This inspiration comes in large part from my training with Josh Ryer of Ryer Martial Arts Academy. This group integrates body movement as metaphor for the healing principles for living a compassionate life of self-acceptance & loving relationships. The project integrates 12 steps, shame & self-hate work, relationship dynamics, & MARTIAL arts.

More about this group

GROUP PAUSED - Powerhouse Women's Group

Process group for women who are "powerhouses" in their daily lives--fabulous, strong women who love to serve others but who have difficulty being served by others--difficulty in admitting their vulnerabilities and needs. All are in individual therapy/counseling with me and also struggle with food and/or body image. This group is a closed group--new members are accepted as openings arise and as the group process and composition provide.
