SHARON HETHERINGTON, LPC, NCC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice at the Center for Children and Families in Waco, Texas. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I graduated from the University of North Texas, and completed a Masters in Counseling Psychology at Baylor University, along with state certification in School Counseling. I spent many years as a school and career counselor, and now specialize in counseling children, adolescents, adults, career counseling, and life coaching.
I am trained as a therapist, but also hold a board certification as a Life Coach. Life Coaching is a different modality from therapy, useful when one may not need counseling, but needs help to navigate life challenges, such as college, careers, personal and/or professional goals. My passion is to empower those I assist to achieve their best life through finding their strengths and developing appropriate action strategies to reach their goals.
