"Hi, I'm Sara. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) trained clinician who is committed to working collaboratively with clients to achieve their goals. I utilize a calm and compassionate approach when working with clients as I strive to provide a safe environment to facilitate opportunities for clients to grow and enhance their strengths. I am interested in gaining a better understanding of your past and current struggles to work toward your future goals together. I often work with clients navigating any life challenges such as trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, and relational issues. I creatively integrate various treatment modalities to uniquely fit one's needs that include, but are not limited to, client-centered approaches, EMDR, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Systems, Parts Work and Mindfulness.
I have had the honor of working at a mental health residential treatment center where I supported adolescents, adults, and families navigate complex trauma and persistent mental health struggles like depression and anxiety, disordered eating, past abuse and traumatic experiences, feelings of hopelessness, and more. I am passionate about providing support to clients to better manage everyday life stressors.
I will be honored to support and be a part of your growth and healing process."
