About Visions Counseling

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you’ve faced, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you’re at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.

"I have been seeing Dr. Sharon for about 2 years. My sessions have been useful and productive. I have learned how to manage my anxiety and depression with techniques that she has provided me. She is patient and not judgmental at all.

Dr. Sharon has improved my relationships with family, friends, and most importantly, the relationship with myself. Deciding to stick with this process and doing the work, is the best decision I’ve ever made. I have and would recommend Dr. Sharon."


“Finding Sharon at the time in my life that I did, has made all the difference in the world. I was punishing myself for things I had no control over. She has helped me to see that I can control my own life and not the ones around me.

With her understanding and guidance, I came to realize that I was missing out on my own happiness by concentrating my energy on others. I love them, but Sharon has helped me to see that I love myself too.”


"I love Dr. Sharon Givens and let me tell you why! I met Dr. Sharon Givens about eight years ago in a professional development training session. Dr. Givens is a very warm, professional, and interpersonal women. A year after we met, I requested her services in the areas of careerdevelopment and coaching for my staff.

Dr. Givens developed a customized career development action plan that helped to motivate my employees. She trained my staff in the following areas: Skill Development, Goal setting, Relationship Building and Soft skills for the 21st century. I can honestly say that not only did I noticed a big difference in the staff attitude and willingness to work as a team but my senior leader noticed as well."
