"I want to leave this review to say how brilliant and life changing my sessions with Dr. Ferere were. Before I started therapy session with Shari I was extremely anxious, and the anxiety was taking over my life. So much so that I avoided most of my favorite things. After three months of meetings with Shari, I have regained my life back and control over my anxiety. I can not recommend the CBT sessions with Shari enough and would direct anyone to her to help change their life for the better."

"When I started therapy, I did not actually believe that the issues that brought me there could be resolved. But Shari's help alongside with meditation and mindfulness has changed everything. Shari was non-judgemental, patient, and very compassionate. I've managed to release so many issues that have affected me throughout my life and never felt better. I'd definitely go back to see Shari if there was anything I wanted to work on in the future."

"This was a new experience for me so I wasn't sure what to expect. Shari has been amazing throughout, she makes it so easy to speak openly without feeling judged and because of this we've been able to get to the root and work through things. Shari, it's been a mind blowing, positive experience..thank you so much!!"

"Shari is very caring and warm. She made me feel at ease straight away and is a very good listener. On our first session, after we discussed everything, she talked about her recommended treatment plan for me and explained everything really clearly. I feel like she really cares. She's always very smiley and easy to talk to. I've made good progress with her."
