Hello and welcome. I’m Sharon Martin, an experienced psychotherapist, mental health writer, and relationship expert. Through my writing, coaching and counseling, I’ve helped thousands of men and women overcome codependency, perfectionism, and self-criticism–so they can embrace their authentic selves and build happy, healthy relationships. I believe boundaries are an essential component of self-care and am passionate about spreading the word that boundaries aren’t selfish and there’s no need to feel guilty about taking care of yourself!
