Sharon Allred, M.Ed., Lpc, Lmft

As a marriage and family therapist and licensed professional counselor, I am keenly interested in the dynamics of your particular situation and history.  With my warm and friendly manner, I want to provide a healing and supportive environment so that together we can explore your concerns and find healthy ways to realize your goals.  I don't just sit and listen; I actively engage you in the therapeutic process to make the concrete, permanent changes you desire in your life.  I tailor therapy to the individual rather than a "one size fits all" approach.  

 

I often use cognitive and behavioral techniques, if appropriate, in order to assist you in reaching your goals in a timely and cost effective way.  I have been in practice for over 19 years.  I am a supervisor for counseling interns too.   I enjoy a wide range of clientele from a variety of age groups, including young teens up to and including the elderly.  I see individuals, couples and families with varied racial, ethnic and spiritual backgrounds.  I operate from Christian values, but I am respectful of those coming from other religious or nonreligious perspectives.  I enjoy helping people recover from depression and anxiety and improve their relationships in all areas of their lives.  My motto is “Life is change, choose wisely”.  In addition, I also enjoy helping people come to a deeper understanding of their temperament and personality type and how it impacts their career, relationships and fulfillment.

 

Sessions last for 50 minutes and along with daytime hours, I see clients several evenings a week.  My office is located in Richardson, near Campbell and Collins on the first floor of building 1701.  Parking is easy around the building and the office is handicap accessible.  The waiting room is warm, comfortable and inviting.
