Access To Quality Mental Health Care Is Our Mission
Sharon Young, Ph.D, LCSW
For over 10 years I have worked as a researcher and counselor with Post 9/11 military and veteran groups. I have served as an embedded clinician with an infantry unit of the Connecticut National Guard. I have also worked closely with veterans writing research papers and book chapters on the adjustment of veterans to civilian life.
I have met a lot of veterans who struggle with seeking help and when they do, don’t always feel like they are given the help they really need. I hope to bridge that gap by providing a holistic approach tailored to the needs of each veteran.
A little more about me
I have a BS in Human Development and Family Relations and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Connecticut. I also have a Ph.D. in social work from Fordham University. In my doctoral program, I externed at the National Center for PTSD and my dissertation focused on the adjustment of veterans to college. I am trained in CBT for insomnia, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Written Exposure Therapy for PTSD. More importantly, I am deeply invested in helping veterans negotiate the challenges of civilian life.
