Sharon Fischer, LICSW
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Therapist
Narrative of Services:
I work in a pediatric medical practice serving children and adolescents on the North Shore. I help kids and their parents with many issues, predominantly anxiety. About a quarter of my clients present with OCD spectrum disorders. I work with clients and their families as a team using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention.
I’ve been in practice since 2006. Much of my advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was at Stanford University from 2010-2011 where I attended a weekly group run by David Burns’ Feeling Good Institute as well as with a senior supervisor who coached me during this training and after. I also ran a weekly satellite group based on the methods taught to me in the Stanford University group in the Boston area for mental health professionals from 2011-2013.
