Creating space for healing and recovery

Do you need a safe place to heal and recover from trauma and life adjustments?

What is Professional Counseling?

The journey of life is hard and often traveling it alone makes the process more difficult. Our staff of trained professional counselors will walk with you on whatever journey you are facing: trauma, divorce, death of a loved one, depression, anxiety, loneliness, codependency recovery, etc. We provide a safe space to share your story and discover how to begin your healing journey.

We provide tools to understand, cope, grow and heal from life adjustments you may encountering. We are a trauma focused team working with PTSD, Complex PTSD, Grief, Complicated Grief, Divorce Adjustment, Depression, Anxiety and life adjustments.

“As a generation living in one of the toughest times in world history, we can't, and we shouldn't ignore the importance of positive holistic health; mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. And I couldn't feel happier to be a part of a present that's keen on building organizations, teams, and individuals who aren't just willing to survive but to live and excel. For that's what real human experience is all about.”

Founder LPC-MHSP, NBCC

The Greystone Retreat: Nashville Enneagram Center for Wellbeing was birthed out of Sharon’s belief that everyone deserves access to “affordable and excellent mental healthcare” and her belief in the “transformative power of the Enneagram as a psychological tool in recovery.”

She is passionate about mental health care in our communities and raising the awareness of the need for good clinical care. She focuses on recovery and resiliency; encouraging people to find hope in dark places. She says the process of recovery is not easy but if you are willing to walk into healing, do the hard work of recovery and grant yourself kindness you will experience life rather than just surviving life.

Sharon is dual licensed in Tennessee and Arizona and is a Tennessee State Approved Supervisor for Licensure. Sharon’s theraputic approach is holistic and trauma informed. She has within her repertoire EMDR, TBRI, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and the Enneagram approach to therapy.  Sharon is a Certified Parent Coordinator and works closely with the Middle Tennessee County Court System offering alternatives to high-conflict post custody cases, striving to push parents to “think in the best interest” of their children.

Sharon is a firm believer that trauma lodges itself in the body, mind and heart. She says, “Trauma is pervasive.  Because trauma doesn’t discriminate there are symptoms that are normal to one who has been exposed to trauma.  The trauma is “not normal” however your responses to trauma are.  One of those responses is isolation and when the victim isolates it compounds the trauma. My best advice for people recovering from any kind of trauma is work with a trauma trained therapist. Trauma should not be carried alone.”

Sharon is active in the Nashville community serving on homeless and veterans boards. She is sought after for Critical Stress Debriefings for natural disasters and violence. Sharon took part in the recovery process of the Route 91 and Opry Mills shooting, Hurricane Katrina and the Tsunami. She is a published author, radio guest, speaker, former restaurateur and organizational trainer. In 2013 she started 9P (9paths.com) a consulting company that trains organizational teams in the Enneagram Personality Mapping System increasing the talent and teams performance and creating long-term sustainability.
