Learn More About Our Therapy Services
People often wonder if therapy is really necessary. While we won't answer that for you, we will say that therapy can be for anyone. Therapy can be a rich healing experience. Whether you have a mental health diagnosis, you need healthier coping strategies, you need guided help with processing your past, you're struggling with a life transition, or something else, therapy can be of use.
At Sankofa Healing Center, we seek to decolonize therapy. In other words, we provide therapy that is culturally relevant, anti-oppressive, and client-centered. Our approach is collaborative, eclectic, real, and empowering. We want to see you win.
Some of our specialties are relationship issues, work-related stress, racial trauma, anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA+, self-esteem issues, trauma, grief/loss, sex positivity, life transitions, health issues, religion, spirituality, and student-related stress.
Shari Simon, LMSW, SIFI conducts therapy under the supervision of Amira Crawford, LCSW-R, owner of Amira for Her.

Welcome Message from Shari
I am so proud of you! Taking the step to find a therapist is huge. Regardless of what you’re dealing with, I am glad that you found my profile. You deserve to live life on your own terms.
Together, we will create a space that allows you to unpack and process any areas of your life that you want to enhance. Whether these feelings stem from work, relationships, school, life transitions, or something else, I can support you in accessing strategies to overcome these issues. My clients include individuals, couples, and families. I am a collaborative therapist so I’m excited about working with you to create a plan to meet your goals.
My approach is to meet clients where they are. I customize treatment plans based on your unique needs. Some of my go-to techniques include solution-focused therapy, affirmations-based therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and narrative therapy. As a social justice-oriented therapist, I use an anti-oppressive, strengths-based, and trauma-informed lens.
If you’re looking for a therapist that will center your lived experiences, please email me for a free consultation. Together, we can help you manage anxiety, strengthen your relationship, increase your self-esteem, heal from childhood trauma, navigate racial trauma, and much more. I look forward to meeting you!
