Sharone Overfelt, LPC
Life can be tough, exhausting, and difficult to navigate, and many people experience Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship difficulties and Trauma. Sharone is committed to helping individuals with these challenges. Together you will identify the causes, and create a path to help you improve your life.
Her education includes a 2-year training in a Somatic approach called Hakomi that strongly integrates body-mind connection and mindfulness. It is gentle and promotes self-study. With mindfulness we can explore and uncover deep rooted core beliefs that are shaping everyday behavior and cause distress.
Sharone also utilizes Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), a therapeutic method incorporating the use of light, color wavelengths, and eye movements, aims to rapidly transform emotional distress and related physical pain into a positive emotional state. You can read more about it here.
So how did she decide to become a counselor? Her experience has led her to discover her life’s purpose in counseling but not before experiencing a severe bout of depression. For many years she worked as a business analyst and project manager in IT; She had great income, benefits, and an environment that supported her role as a provider and mom. She learned that these elements were not enough to feel content and fulfilled in life. She would finish every day exhausted and drained. It took everything she had to wake up the next morning and do it all over again day after day. Sharone had nothing to lose and embarked on a year of exploration. There were many things she tried and she spoke to many people.
Until one day she bumped into a weekend of HAKOMI (mindfulness-based approach) – someone suggested it and she decided to give it a try. She felt at home for the first time in a long time. The rest is history: Masters Degree, lots of professional training and here she is. The point of this story is that depression and other emotional challenges can actually be the key to discovering a new path if we allow ourselves to listen to their insight. The body speaks in many ways and it is important that we learn how to listen to it as an inner guidance system. That is also why HAKOMI training for her is not only a professional path, but also a personal healing one.
She is a mother to two wonderful girls as well as a step-mom in a blended family. Her husband, Greg, is a source of love and support to the entire family. Together, they manage to balance the needs of all family members and to create a loving and functional nest to their family. She has extensive experience navigating the corporate world from her many years as project manager. A well-rounded background and passion to connect with others on a deep level have led her to become a counselor in mid-life.
Originally from Israel, she comes from a diverse cultural background: brought up in a Jewish family, her parents immigrated from Argentina. She also served two years in the Israeli army. This diversity has made her open minded, accepting individual who believes we each deserve a safe space to explore without judgement.
Her background includes employment as a primary therapist at Changes Plano – an Outpatient program for adults to explore and improve mental health as well as individual therapist at Bridging Harts Psychotherapy working with adults and families on a variety of challenges.
