If you’ve ever struggled with terrible loss, or can’t find your way out of the darkness, then do we have the Becoming Starlight show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with psychologist and minister Dr. Sharon Prentice, the author of a brilliant book on SDEs and coming into the light, Becoming Starlight.

And that’s just what I want to talk with her about today, a shared death journey from darkness to light and what it means for us all.

It’s so powerful that you might want to keep some Kleenex handy, but boy will it inspire you!!!!!





Soon after completing her graduate studies in psychology, Dr. Prentice found the world of secular psychology lacking-her patients needed “something more.” So, she set out to investigate and explore alternative methods in the field of mental health that would incorporate that “something special” she believed existed in each and every individual soul. Her journey would take her through the great religions of the world as well as to a discovery of ancient, time proven alternatives to modern therapeutic models of counseling.

Along the way, because of her unusual personal experience with death, she developed a keen and intense interest in death and dying. She researched, investigated, and interviewed patients who were in the dying process, individuals who had experienced NDEs or SDEs or had experienced something “weird, unbelievable, odd” at the time of death of a loved one. She found that “something more” in Spirit!

Her studies and experiences led her to seek out alternative learning centers which incorporated a much more spiritual approach to mental health. Dr. Prentice firmly believes that if one is not spiritually healthy then it is nearly impossible to enjoy emotional, psychological, or physical health.

Dr. Prentice is in private practice as a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor-Advanced Certification. She is also a Board Certified Spiritual Counselor (SC-C) and holds Board Certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Group Therapy, Integrated Marriage and Family Therapy, and Crisis and Abuse Therapy. She is also a Board Certified Temperament Counselor.

Dr. Prentice is a professional member of the American Counselors Association, a professional clinical member of the National Christian Counselors Association, a clinical member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, and a presidential member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. She is also a commissioned minister of Pastoral Care.

Dr. Prentice and her 30+ years of interest in the spiritual health of her patients have guided her away from strictly traditional methods of psychotherapy to what she terms “crazy hot mess” therapy where all aspects of one’s being are considered and honored. Because of the nature of her experiences, both personal and professional, she has a unique understanding of the true nature of the Soul-and the need for ripping open the dark recesses of the Spirit where joy sometimes is held captive. “Crazy hot mess therapy” opens up-wakes up-the Spirit! She does, however, devote extra attention to those seeking solace and understanding after the death of a loved one as she fully acknowledges the experiences that sometimes accompany that death.

Her commitment to the health and well being of the Spiritual nature of her patients has led to her being called “an empath,” “ a mind reader,” “a healer,” and “a spiritual guide” by her patients. Her highly sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate nature, her unique approach to therapy, and her truly empathic ways have engendered a loving and fiercely loyal following among her patients and her friends.
