Sharon Cohen, Ph.D.


I am fiercely committed to working with ambitious women who can’t seem to find the right relationship and are ready to give up on love. I help them have the committed, stable, deeply loving relationships they’ve been yearning for.


If you’re looking for a proven professional who will guide you to break free from your past relationship and attraction patterns so you’ll step fully into the deeply intimate and healthy relationship you want,


And if you want help staying connected to yourself, to your own inner guidance and wisdom within your relationship instead of losing track of yourself and YOUR needs, then you’ve come to the right place.


With almost 30 years of experience in the mental health and wellness field and now working specifically on dating, love, and relationship issues since 2011, guiding my amazing clients to achieve remarkable success, my mission and commitment are to mentor you having the relationship of your dreams while you blossom open to receive ever-lasting love.



My path started with my educational background and career working in psychiatric hospitals. That background definitely informs what I do. However, my personal history is what makes this my calling.


I moved back to California from Texas after having a number of important but not “the right one” relationships. Now 40 years old, I was dating and didn’t think that I had anything specifically to do with why I was still single.


Not the right man, not the right time. Not the right woman. All true.


But what I didn’t really know was why?


Why were my friends all married and not me? Why did it seem like all the people I met were married and not me? Certainly, I knew other single women my age who weren’t married, but we were all the exception, not the rule.


I had been in therapy. I had discussed my loneliness and sadness about the situation, but I hadn’t gotten anywhere.


Then I met my mentor. She worked with me in a way no therapist had ever done before. She was more education-oriented. She was more in-my-face. She guided me to change my identity to be who I was truly born to be, not the mask I’d been walking around with that I hadn’t even realized I’d created.


Friends and acquaintances had always said, “you’re so confident and independent.”


Not bad things, but I also wanted to be in a relationship and didn’t always feel so sure of myself. I did not want to be seen as less than or, G-d forbid, vulnerable. So I had created this persona so no one would think I was lacking or wanting or sad or lonely.


Yet I was lonely and sad.


My close friends knew. But to the outside world, I looked like I had it all together and didn’t want or need a relationship.


The work my mentor and I did together was on dropping the mask, to get back to the real me – the me beneath all the “supposed-to-be’s” and the “don’t-want-them-to-see’s” – so I could relax fully and comfortably in who I am and who I was born to be.


She helped me gain a sense of self-acceptance and self-compassion. And she awoke a different sort of self-care and self-love than I had been doing. It’s not all about mani-pedis and good workouts.


Not too long after, on a night when I wasn’t looking, a man approached me. He didn’t need me to be looking at him because he could see and feel the new me. I radiated different energy than I had been giving off for so many years previously.


And we’ve been together ever since. Married happily. He loves me exactly as I am. No mask. Just me.


I feel the same way about him. We both feel blessed to be together.


So I am passionate about guiding other women to have their breakthroughs.


Clients say remarkable things about the impact our work has on the success of their love life.


Example comments include:



I credit Dr. Sharon with helping me to be in my current healthy relationship; without her, I think I would have made some mistakes in how I have handled the very intimate issues that we have already faced.”

~ 40-something female, NOW MARRIED!


“My work with you has been so valuable to me… Eight months ago, a wonderful man met me who I had actually met years before. All my insights about being feminine and patient, open, receptive, available, and respectful have served me well. I am so grateful…

~ 60-something female. ENGAGED!


“I know our relationship would not have survived had we not been coming to see you. You taught us so much and have been integral to our relationship’s success.”

~ 40-something couple, together for over 5 years. Each had “one foot out the door” when they arrived. Currently ENGAGED!!


Similar benefits await when you decide to invest in yourself and invite me to serve you in the powerful ways that I can support your success in love and in life.


What lights me up about this work is knowing that having love in your life is possible for you. You are SO WORTHY of healthy, beautiful, stable, committed, juicy love. Even if you’ve lost hope, I will hold the space of hope for you.


What sets me apart from others is that my work comes from the aggregate of my background as a psychotherapist, as a student of Dr. Pat Allen, Carl Jung, transactional analysis, the science of adult attachment, biology, brain, and body science, my personal journey, and my continued thirst for on-going knowledge.


I am a consultant. I work from the philosophy that whatever you’ve been doing up until this point is not working. I will train you on what it is you should be saying or doing that will best serve you. The work we do together re-wires your brain so that the changes you make last a lifetime.

The session is uniquely tailored to you because the magic happens when we find out how can I best serve you now and possibly in the future.

For those who the credentials are important:


I graduated from UCLA (B.A. in Sociology; Business and Administration concentration), USC (Master in Social Work; Families and Children concentration) and the University of Texas at Austin (Doctor of Philosophy, Ph.D., School of Social Work).


I am also credentialed as a Transactional Analysis Practitioner by the United States Transactional Analysis Association and in Androgynous Semantic Realignment® by the WANT® Institute.


Before, I spent time honing my clinical education in the psychiatric hospital setting. I worked with individuals, couples, groups, and multi-family groups.


I was in charge of the Outpatient admissions process at Seton Shoal Creek Hospital in Austin, Texas. Included programs: a Substance Abuse & Addictions Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and an Adult (Mental Health & Well-Being) IOP.


I’ve worked for start-up companies, music & film festivals, as a social coordinator and much more. All these experiences add to the secret sauce that makes me who I am.


I provide inspiration and help for women who are

  1. dating,
  2. having growing pains in a relationship,
  3. going through a breakup, seeking to recover and move on AND
  4. going through a dry spell.


My BIG goal is to help rid the world of unnecessary loneliness and poor communication. Any person who wants to be will be in a relationship of ever-lasting love with their “meant-to-be” partner, feeling connected and loved…that is my vision of success.


Allow me to help you have your vision of success. I’d be honored.


My Feelings On Love

Love is the answer


I fell in love the moment I heard the hushed, emotive quote from the movie “Shall We Dance.” Why do people get married?


We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness.’


At our core, we all want to have that witness. To be heard, known, and understood. To be fully and unconditionally loved. To have our lives be as important to someone else as it is to us.


If you are ready to have a witness to your life, BOOK your initial LOVE BREAKTHROUGH Discovery appointment. Let’s talk now about how you will have love in your life!
