My extensive experience of working with clients in a nonjudgmental manner enables me to guide them in discovering and developing their inner strength, awareness, and wisdom. I am passionate about assisting clients and accompanying them on their healing journey. When we work together, the aim is to uncover dysfunctional patterns that are contributing to, or even perpetuating, your challenges. One of the major goals of treatment includes removing both internal and external barriers so that clients can overcome extreme anxiety and foster an environment where they can engage authentically and function from a place of the true self.
I am especially experienced in working with individuals, couples, and families. I employ an eclectic approach that encompasses differentiation modalities to help you recognize blind spots, manage conflict, work through current and past relationship challenges, and identify patterns that are no longer serving you.
We are in the midst of a period of immense fear and uncertainty! Life doesn't always provide neat solutions, so it's crucial to learn how to stay grounded. You may not realize it, but you are the expert on your own life. Engaging in treatment takes courage, and I want to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

Professional Connections

I have worked collaboratively with Sara for many years and have always found her open, yet direct approach with clients to be refreshing. Sara's experience in advocating for clients effectively is one of the many strengths she brings to the mental health field. She is able to have tough conversations while balancing an approach that encourages empowerment. 

Sara is one of the warmest people you'll ever meet. Part of what makes her such an effective therapist is her intuitive approach to the art of therapy. She is creative and instinctively shapes her interventions to the person she's working with. If you're seeking an intelligent, capable, and kind counselor-- you will find that in Sara.
