Clinical Director

Shara brings to Sabino Recovery a unique perspective and skill set as she spent the majority of her earlier career in public health working with individuals dually diagnosed with a variety of substance use and mental health disorders, complex trauma, and extreme environmental and social inadequacies.

Since her induction to Sabino in 2019, Shara has developed a comprehensive, individualized, and sophisticated program that has seen incredible success in changing the lives of those affected by trauma.

In addition to attaining licensed professional counselor certification, she is certified by Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (Eagala) and versed in a variety of therapeutic modalities including NARM, EMDR, Brainspotting, DBT, and CPT. Shara’s passion lies in stepping away from the stigma of diagnosis and treating the individual, utilizing an integrative and holistic approach.
