Dr. Sharon Greenberg is a licensed clinical psychologist
in Los Altos, California in Silicon Valley.
She has been a practicing psychotherapist for twenty-seven years, and a
psychologist in private practice for nineteen years.
"For therapy to work I believe that therapists really need to care about, and feel connected to, the
individuals they work with. My work is about understanding my patients at a deep level.
This is not just a business or a job; helping people get better and live their life in a
fuller happier way is my passion.
It is my belief that therapy should be conducted in a manner designed to meet your specific needs.
Each person is an individual; your personality needs to be considered when a therapist works with you.
I help people to work through the issues that prevent them from pursuing the life goals they desire.
Sometimes I help people to examine the patterns of the family they grew up in, and sometimes I work with people on
more current issues of their everyday life.
The approach I use depends on what is getting in the way of their feeling
happy and living life in a fulfilling manner.
My style is to be active and responsive during the session.
I don't avoid discussions or questions during sessions.
Unlike the media's standard portrayal of psychologists, I don't believe in answering a question
with a question.
It is my belief that the client knows best what they need to discuss and
what they need to work on. I provide feedback and interpretations of the client's inner
experiences and behavior as appropriate.
I am a caring, warm, person who is able to help individuals
by shedding light on patterns that people develop and I do this in a safe environment."
