    Owner/Managing Member

Sharlene B. McDaniel, Owner/Managing Member and Licensed Professional Counselor at Auburn Behavioral Health, LLC has roots that run deep in the Auburn - Opelika community, beginning over 30 years ago with a passion for helping people recover from the effects of mental health and substance abuse problems that prevented them from enjoying the quality of life they desired.

That passion initially rooted itself in the public sector, providing counseling/psychotherapy and advocacy services to those with the most serious and disabling conditions, who had the least available resources to meet those needs.

Now in the private sector, the call to serve continues, helping individuals, couples, families and groups from all walks of life work toward achieving their own unique personal goals for a better and more satisfying life.

I enjoy working with people 19 and over, who are experiencing a variety of concerns. Many people who seek my services struggle with symptoms including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, substance use issues, marital problems, LGTB concerns, adjustment issues, grief, loss, and major life transitions. I am also very comfortable working with individuals with serious mental illnesses, including those who are either already connected with a psychiatrist or those willing to consider a psychiatric referral for medication assisted therapy.
