Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step; let me take it with you! -- Adapted 

I'm currently providing video & telephone sessions during the pandemic through highly secure platforms.

People come to counselling / psychotherapy for many reasons. Sometimes they are struggling with distressing emotions that get in the way of their productivity, daily functioning and peace of mind. Other times, they want to have better experiences in their relationships with family, friends, a loved-one or co-workers. In some cases they are going through periods of change and struggle to find balance and comfort in the midst of uncertainty. If you are at an impasse in your life... if you simply cannot go on with things being the way they are... you are in the perfect place for change to happen!!

My name is Sharon Barrett; I am the founder of Deep Blue Counselling and Mental Wellness Services. I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and have a Master's Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Toronto, specializing in Mental Health. I have been working with people experiencing various levels of distress - and their families - since 2007. At Deep Blue Counselling and Mental Wellness Services, clients can work through their challenges, harness their strengths, gain perspective and move toward that state of balance we all seek.

I work with individuals 18 years and older to address a number of therapeutic issues, including:

  • Relationship Issues

  • Life transitions

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Depression

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Low Self Esteem

  • Cross-cultural Issues

  • Racial Identity

  • Loneliness and Isolation

If you have considered counselling but have not yet acted upon it; don't put it off any longer! As an experienced therapist and mental health practitioner, I can work with you to harness your internal resources and develop the tools you need to feel more in control of your emotions and your life.
