Our female clientele often seek her out to work individually on depression or anxiety resulting from family stress and relationship burdens. A portion of her practice is also dedicated to family therapy where she is especially known for working with parents of preschoolers.
Bain earned her Masters in Social Work from the University of Chicago and her B.A. from the University of Notre Dame. After several years providing intensive outpatient treatment for women with depression, she re-specialized in the area of children and families while working at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
For 13 years, Bain served part time as the Parent Resource Specialist and Consultant at Early Childhood Development Center of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College where she provided counseling to parents and training and consultation to teachers regarding preschool behavior and developmental concerns. She continues in this role on a contractual basis.
Bain has completed Level III of Gottman training and has had exposure to AASECT, Imago, Adlerian, PAIRS and other models of treatment for relationship health.
She is a married mother of three sons, ages 15 to 20. Sharon enjoys singing classical contemporary choral music.
I thoroughly enjoy the fact that most of my clients are now women seeking individual adult long-term therapy for help with relationship problems, depression, and/or anxiety resulting from family stress. I also still enjoy having a portion of my practice dedicated to family therapy.
I look forward to, after the vaccine allows me to be in-person with clients again, opening intake appointments for couples interested in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy (having completed all three levels of training with the Gottman Institute).
