It’s a space where you can increase awareness of who you are, measure your limits, and expand your personal and interpersonal abilities to make significant change. You’ll be considered the expert about you. Sarah will walk alongside you as you navigate your healing journey.
Sarah meets each of her clients where they’re at. Some of the specific areas that she focuses on include life transitions, grief and loss, trauma (e.g., childhood, sexual, domestic violence), self-esteem, self-identity, sexuality, spirituality, addiction, depression, anxiety, and barriers to intimacy. When working with children, she uses play therapy, talk therapy and art therapy. With adults, teens, and children, she uses active listening, exploratory questions, teaching and identifying coping skills, building trust, being present, non-judgmental respect, and humor.
The modalities Sarah most commonly uses are person-centered, like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Existential Therapy, Psychoanalytic Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. She also works from a place of understanding and empathy to explore culturally significant impacts.
Sarah has a Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and experience working with children, teens, adults, families, children in the care and custody of child protective services, foster families, and court mandated clients. She’s also worked in an inpatient residential setting focusing on stabilization, crisis intervention, and goal setting, as well as long term outpatient treatment with more focus on exploring self and patterns, building self-esteem, and increasing skills to promote connection with others.
