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."
