Shari Fitzgerald


Personal Bio:

As humans, we share a desire to be understood, believed, and appreciated. We can also struggle – with relational issues, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. A therapeutic relationship can help us through life’s challenges while gaining new insight. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, curious, and compassionate space to do this.  

My counseling philosophy is person-centered- which means you know you best. I lean towards mindfulness, self-compassion, and somatic approaches while incorporating polyvagal theory and dialectical behavioral skills. Areas of interest and increasing competency include trauma, relational abuse, anxiety, and grief/loss from adolescents to those in late adulthood.

Before becoming a therapist, I spent many years in non-profits and schools as a victim advocate, youth advocate, and educator. Working with young people and survivors teaches me the importance of simply sitting beside someone and the resiliency in each of us to survive hard times and find meaning.
