I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

It's possible to have a fulfilling, meaningful and joyful life. I create a safe space for you to explore how your life experiences shaped your view of yourself and others. As a result of childhood abuse or neglect, intergenerational transmission of trauma and ongoing injustice, we can develop negative beliefs about our worth and what the world will provide for us. These often unconscious thoughts and behaviors helped you survive and even thrive but may not work well now. As humans, we go through many times of growth where we shed what doesn't fit, so we can become even an better version of ourselves.

I am a licensed psychologist offering psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, couples, and infant-parent dyads. I approach my work from a psychodynamic, social/racial justice and queer feminist lens. I believe our childhood experiences and attachment relationships with our caregivers, in combination with our various social identity markers, shape us into the adults we grow up to become. I seek to understand each person's unique life circumstances and experiences so I can best support them in their process of healing and growth. Underlying my work is a deep commitment to interrupting the intergenerational transmission of trauma and oppression.

"Let me walk with you into the sunlight..." I have a passion for guiding clients on their path to healing, empowerment, finding meaning, and creating a healthy balance and authenticity in one's life. I am an immigrant from Poland. The prejudice I have experienced because of my ethnic background, gives me a capacity to be empathic and real with my clients. I enjoy working with people of all ages, couples, and families. Regardless of approach in therapy, it is the ‘relationship that heals’ what needs focus. Beyond teaching tools to calm your nervous system, my goal is to provide a corrective emotional experience.🌞

I work with individuals looking to fundamentally change the way they relate to themselves, to break free from the burden of impossible standards and feelings of inadequacy. Often this involves investigation into the ways we relate to ourselves and to the ways we can punish or sabotage ourselves. Working together, we can find new ways to cope that allow you to live a more vital and authentic life, less encumbered by anxiety and stress. I believe that this kind of work represents no less than liberation from the doubts and fears that stop you from living your own best life.

My name is Sarah Marie and I work with adults who feel like their inner critic is controlling their life. Their anxiety has overridden their playfulness. They fear they give too much power to other people's opinion of them. Often they are unsure if their relationships are healthy and if they are dating they don't want to repeat patterns they know do not work. This lack of confidence and ease with self, plus the anxiety about the health of their relationships has resulted in all or some of the following issues: generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression and/or a general lack of joyfulness and playfulness.

You might be grappling with grief, stress, relationship troubles, or a separation and the aftermath of loss. Maybe you're an adult who was once a neglected or traumatized kid, trying to have close relationships. Or you're a teacher with intense perfectionism, an artist whose self-criticism blocks creative projects, or an athlete plateauing in sport. Maybe you're a therapist struggling to navigate her personal history and clinical work, or a white person wanting to address racism and privilege. Coping mechanisms like food, alcohol, exercise, are your "game face," but you wish you could let people know the real you.
