    Counseling Sessions with Dr. Sharon Michelle

    Thank you for visiting my page. Mind Over Grind was created after I understood our journeys through life do not have to be a struggle. In fact when we learn why we experience what we do, life becomes much easier to handle.
    Mind is short for mindfulness practices and Grind represents our push and forceful nature to make things happen. Mind Over Grind is a call to be mindful and not forceful as we navigate through life.
    As a Black woman, I have worked very hard to get where I am. I have grinded through school and career to reach my goals. When I finally arrived, I was exhausted and depleted, but still looking around for what was next. I was so used to working and pushing forward, I never stopped to enjoy my life. I missed so much because I was stuck in the grind.
    When I started using mindfulness in my own life, I realized how much more I can accomplish and enjoy. I love my life, with all of its ups and downs.
    I started working with my clients using mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy. I have seen clients make positive changes in their lives because of the work we do together and their willingness to make changes.
    I describe my style as a teacher and a guide. I teach you about how the mind works and what makes you behave, believe, and think as you do. I then guide you through practices that will help you reach your goals for therapy. I can't promise you change, but I can promise my presence, engagement and skills. I am good at what I do and confident that our work together will be meaningful. My goal is to help you be the healthiest version of yourself.

    I designed my office with your comfort in mind. Yes, I was thinking of you. So come on in, put your feet up, and let's talk about it.

    The Elephant in the Room

    The elephant is a symbol of wisdom, intelligence and memory. Focused power and strength are also characteristics of the elephant. The elephant is the perfect mascot for Mind Over Grind, which helps you strengthen your mental focus to discover the power you hold within.
