Are you looking for a personal, caring psychotherapist or group counselor in Atlanta?
Dr. Sharman Colosetti graduated from being a paralegal, working in an adversarial role to help keep people apart, to being a Coordinator for a Rape Crisis Program.She wore many hats — a therapist, fundraiser, and community educator. After several years, she went back to school for her Ph.D. and got an internship at a women’s prison where she developed the group counseling program. She continues as a consultant/psychotherapist/group counselor/trainer for the Department of Corrections. In 2000, she began a private practice in psychotherapy in the Atlanta area where she counsels adults, both individually and in groups.
I coordinated a Rape Crisis Program for a few years that fulfilled the social change part of my values. The constant crises got to me so, back to school, again. I received a Ph.D. in Social Work and completed an internship at a woman’s prison that turned into an on-going consultation.
Instead of becoming a professor as planned, I opened a private practice where I continue to learn and grow with my clients. I work with adults who want to know themselves fully, live spontaneously, and more easily connect with others. I provide honest feedback because I believe that if we can understand our patterns and make different choices, we can create a better life.
I work with adults, individually, as couples and in groups. I have the following specialties:
Clinical Experience & Training
I received my Master’s and Doctorate in Social Work from the University of Georgia after completing clinical internships at the Medical College of Georgia, Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic, and Washington State Prison for Women.
