Meet Sharon

Sharon Brani is a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia, a Certified Master Christian Life Coach, an educator, published freelance writer, and speaker whose life is committed to helping people discover the way life is meant to be.

She gets excited teaching how to develop and grow a greater sense of purpose, peace, and passion.

Her work involves many different aspects, some of which include counseling, coaching, and consulting as well as writing and speaking to groups on a variety of inspirational topics. Some of her popular topics are health and wellness, navigating transitions in life, spiritual formation, and parenting. She is an enthusiastic advocate for all those involved with adoption.

Sharon is the mother of two young adult daughters whom she adopted from Russia. As a nurturer she is well equipped to coach parents at every stage of the adoption process. Her personal experience as a single parent as well as her career as a teacher for over twenty years give her a rich foundation from which to counsel, coach, and consult.

She lives in Northern Virginia but considers the rocky coast of Maine a bit of heaven on earth. Sharon enjoys classical and worship music, blooming lilacs in springtime and a hot cup of coffee in the morning.

I have known Sharon Brani for several years and can vouch that she is a woman of great integrity, insight, and compassion.
