Professional statement

Sharon Broder is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who works with clients remotely across the state of Massachusetts. She specializes in working with professionals who feel stuck in patterns that are getting in the way of feeling successful at work and thriving in relationships. Psychotherapy is her second career, and she draws on her past corporate and non-profit work experience in her clinical work with clients.

Sharon is a good fit for people who feel up for a gentle challenge. Those who are most likely to benefit from working with Sharon are people who are curious about themselves and open to the idea that, with some work, it is possible to become more emotionally flexible in the face of challenges.

Short-term treatments are available for people who are looking for help with a specific problem, and longer term treatments are available for those who are seeking deeper understanding and change. Sharon looks forward to meeting you.

Message to clients

Getting ourselves into good working order starts with understanding who we are and learning how to manage difficult feelings. I welcome the opportunity to understand your story and learn what success looks like for you. Together we can strengthen your ability to understand yourself, bear the dark moments, change, and move forward.


Anxiety - When you can't turn down the volume on your worries; when your brain feels like a pitbull who grabs onto fears and refuses to let go

Depression - When you're sick of yourself, have no energy for anything, and can't seem to get out of your own way; when you can't even remember exactly what you used to like about yourself

Relationships - When you intellectually know that some things need to change about your relationships but are no longer sure how to actually make those changes happen; when you're stuck in a relationship with someone who is probably not going to change; when you love-hate your family

Mindfulness - When you are sick of hearing about the benefits of meditation but are secretly curious if it could help you

Stress management - When you need some help getting through the whirlwind of life before you burn out, get sick, or find yourself in a black hole of despair
