Psychotherapist

Hi! I am Sharnelle Hampton-Holiday, I have been practicing social work since 2016. I hold a Master’s of Science in Social Administration from Case Western Reserve University and am a Licensed Social Worker (LSW). My approach to therapy and life is to be realistic while also being aspirational. I don’t believe in quick fixes; growth and change take time, can be difficult to navigate but ultimately you can get to where you want to be. I specialize in treating mood disorders as well as working with clients who struggle with environmental stressors (relationships, jobs, racial tensions, crisis of faith, etc).

To help in these situations I use therapeutic methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Trauma Focused CBT, as well as customizing methods based on the clients individual needs. I feel that a key component of working with clients is creating an atmosphere of comfort. Therapy can be uncomfortable, so building a therapeutic alliance, I find, helps to further progress by creating a space where people feel open to being vulnerable. I became a mental health professional because I recognized the stress and pain that life can bring and how important it is to be able to work through all of the mess in order to grow, and enjoy life. I would love to work with you and together explore your struggles and strengths, to lead you to the life you desire.

Sharnelle is currently under the supervision of Acacia Quaintance MSSA, LISW-S  and working towards her independent license.
