For this week's episode I am joined by Shari N. Warner. Shari is a licensed attorney, marriage and family therapist, and speaker. She's the owner of Serendipity Counselling and Consulting LLC. We discussed how to navigate times of transition. With transition and lifestyle changes can come a push out of our comfort zone and feelings of fear and anxiety. Shari shares the importance of being open to new perspectives, the power of getting to know yourself, and the role of confidence in navigating new pathways.
Shari N. Warner, JD, LMFT, a Florida licensed attorney, marriage and family therapist and speaker, is the owner of Serendipity Counseling and Consulting, LLC, a private mental health practice in Tamarac, Florida. Shari’s practice focuses on women’s mental, emotional, and behavioral health, assisting clients in addressing past issues that have kept them stuck in negative and harmful behaviors and/or relationships. Shari’s passion for “helping women achieve their best selves” led to the creation of Serendipity, where she hopes that every woman who walks through the door finds unexpected strength, goodness, and hope in themselves. www.serendipitycounselingllc.com
Shari also recognizes that there are many women in the community without the financial ability or resource to obtain therapy and so she founded the Serendipity Women’s Mental Wellness Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization which will provide therapy services to adult women. www.serendipitywomensmwfoundation.org
Shari is also the founder of CaribbeanTherapists.com, an online directory aimed at connecting members of the Caribbean community with mental health practitioners of Caribbean heritage. Working with a therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist who understands and is better able to address their unique cultural needs, ultimately benefits the mental health and wellness of our Caribbean clients. “I understand that there is still a stigma against mental illness in the Caribbean community but having access to Caribbean clinicians makes the process less overwhelming for our people.” www.caribbeantherapists.com
When she is not busy managing her various projects, Shari enjoys spending quality time with her hubby or connecting with the women in her sister circle.
