What
Where

Sharon Thompson Wilson, LMFT, has specialized in couple therapy for more than 35 years. She brings a depth and breadth of theoretical and practical understanding to her work using anIntegrative Approach. She has taught couple therapy and has been leading consultation groups for 25 years in Sacramento and Davis. She looks forward to beginning 2 new groups in Davis this Fall.

Sharon has particular expertise working with couples where the complexities of sex, intimacy and the erotic are brought to therapy.

In 2008, Sharon reached out herself for consultation to Esther Perel, as many of her couples were presenting challenges related to sex addiction, disparate sexual desire, infidelity, questioning monogamy, polyamory, non-monogamy, and more. Sharon continues to train with Esther after years of being in private and group consultation with her.

Sharon’s foundational core integrates and is deeply grounded in:

  • family systems theory,
  • the dual needs of attachment and differentiation,
  • multi-generational messaging and patterns, and
  • how childhood blueprints shape lives, sexuality and expectations for marriage, family and committed relationships.

Sharon will help you learn how to change the dance in the office, coming from whatever approach you use, deepening your work while adding new ways to get through the most stuck places using her Integrative Approach. You will explore what each partner needs to change, altering their interactions in sessions with your help as their trusted empathic choreographer. It is through the lived experience in the safety of your office that couples might change their circular interactions from reactive survival stances, to loving and growing intimate conversations, where real transformation is possible.

Contact Sharon to set up your 30 minute no-cost meeting to see if one of her groups may be a good fit for you.

Choose either a 90 minute monthly group and/or a 60 minute bi-weekly group. Exact day, time, and start date TBD by interested clinicians. Please note. If you currently do not see couples, individual cases with relationship concerns may be used for case presentation.
