Dr. Sharon Martin
Hello and welcome. I’m Sharon and I want to help you set Better Boundaries!
I’m a licensed psychotherapist, mental health blogger, and boundaries expert. Through my writing, coaching, and counseling, I’ve helped hundreds of men and women who struggle with 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 I’m passionate about spreading the word that boundaries aren’t selfish and there’s no need to feel guilty about taking care of yourself!
