I practiced family medicine in Charlottesville for 20 years, before answering a call to become the Chief Medical Officer of Hospice of the Piedmont. During the last several years of my practice, I was privileged to work intimately with Sharon Brani as she shared space in our office, providing counseling services to many of our patients and families. Sharon’s work and ministry are marked by compassion, competence, and integrity. I would not hesitate to refer my own family to her care, and have the deepest respect and admiration for her insight, caring heart, and ability to help individuals, couples, and families find wholeness and wellness in their relationships and lives. She is a beacon of light and hope.
