Sharon Peterson's bio

This content was provided by Sharon Peterson "Sharon R Peterson, LCSW, CEDS is a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia and Maryland. I have been an outpatient therapist providing individual, family, and group therapy since 1995. I have worked for numerous community mental health agencies and school systems in Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Maryland. A native of Atlanta, I attended Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, Riverwood High School, and The New School. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a BS degree focusing on psychology and criminal justice, and went on to complete my Master's in Social Work from The University of Kentucky. My first post graduate job was at a community mental health agency in rural Tennessee followed by joining the clinical staff at Sheppard Pratt Health System in Baltimore, Maryland. Presently, I am in private practice in the greater Atlanta area of Sandy Springs. I also completed my requirements to become a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Specialists(iaedp), a symbol of professional excellence in the field of eating disorders treatment. In addition to my private practice, I founded the non-profit, Eating Disorder Network of Maryland in 2007 and ran it for over seven years. I have have also served on the Steering Committee of PFLAG-Baltimore County. I've always been a loyal advocate speaking out against bullying due to size, race, religion, nationality, or sexuality. I have served as a faculty member at The Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training & Education, Inc (IAPTE) for many years while living in Baltimore and taught CEU classes for professionals about eating disorders, families in crisis, parenting, and other mental health issues."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Sharon Peterson "Making the decision to begin therapy is not an easy one. But it can be one of the best decisions you can make to empower yourself & move beyond unresolved issues or to help find the right path to take. Psychotherapy is a collaborative approach between a therapist and client.

As a trained clinical social worker in the mental health field, Sharon R Peterson, LCSW, CEDS,  works with children ages four and up, tweens, teens, adults, and families in a private practice mental health setting, located in the the greater Atlanta area.  I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 1998.

My job is to: assess and diagnose the problem, educate you about your diagnosis, connect you to other resources if necessary, and to help increase your sense of well-being.  Through ongoing communication and therapeutic techniques (learning new skills) I can help you change your behavior,  improve your overall mental health, and improve communication between you and your family, school and environment."
