Society places unrealistic expectations on women to be the time keepers, planners, organizers, and happy-makers of the world. The weight of that burden is crushing, causing women to ignore their own needs. Not only that, but when they fall short, women feel shame, guilt, anxiety, frustration, and inadequacy. I’m a Mental Wellness Coach specializing in helping you overcome emotional and behavioral obstacles. I provide coaching remotely by phone or video conference. Get the help you need in the convenience and privacy of your office or home.
Believe it or not...this is a FUN process. The most important aspect of counseling is to attain the goals you identify. You are the expert in your own life. I am comfortable working with clients who have identified almost any problem area but specifically I am well trained in treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and problems in the social and family environment. I work on the goals you identify rather than my opinion of what you should work on. This makes me a very non-judgmental personal and I develop strong positive relationships with my clients.

I aim to implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

Are you struggling to adjust to the changes that are happening in your life? If so, I have a genuine passion for helping families, couples, and individuals work through transitional life stages.

Hi! My name is Sara Brisbois and I am an Licensed Professional Counselor. I counsel using an integrative and interpersonal approach. I believe everyone has things that come up throughout life that they need help working through. I also believe that a therapeutic relationship alone can be incredibly healing and helpful. By creating that interpersonal relationship, I am then able to personalize therapy to best suit each client and meet them where they are through a variety of approaches.
Holistic Counseling and Wellness Center is a place where you can be yourself, process your experiences and let go of the pain you have been holding on to. At HCWC we provide a virtual, non-judgmental experience where you can feel relaxed in your own environment to openly process your feelings, gain a deeper understanding of yourself, overcome your challenges, and find peace in your now. Our mission is to assist individuals and families with transforming from feeling broken by life experiences to feeling empowered, making intentional choices, and aligning with your full potential.
If you are seeking counseling, you might be trying to make sense of challenging relationships, in the middle of an unforeseen transition, or just starting to process wounds from your past. With everything that you are dealing with, you may have noticed some patterns emerging that keep you from feeling like yourself--maybe criticism directed inward or at others, coping with food or substances, or just shutting down completely.
My professional strength is knowing how to help people calm down and regain focus in one of three ways:(1) counseling-helping someone get through difficult life issues such as the death of a loved one; (2) psychotherapy-which involves real change and requires a long-term commitment to healing open wounds; and (3) consultation-providing advice on a single issue or event where professional consultation could be helpful. Everyone has a story to tell and I am here to listen, to help and to heal. It is my unwavering belief that no matter what the situation is, our problems are never bigger than life.

My ideal client is someone who is lost, hurting or feeling like they are being overlooked, that they don't matter or are not loved. I help those to find their identity in Christ. People who struggle with being shut in due to COVID and other in bound issues, that normally would have been social butterflies but can't seem to find their wings or feel like their wings have been clipped. Individuals that struggle with peer pressure both young and old, or current serving military and their families that might be struggling either going to deployment or coming home, those vets that were never welcomed home.
Counseling for women and young females that foster wellness of the MIND, BODY, and SOUL. As females, we often find ourselves overwhelmed, lost, emotionally and mentally distressed, anxious and completely "out of sorts" with no time for resolution. We attempt to juggle multiple roles, life and its difficulties, and our commitment to others, that we fall by the wayside. When do we say ENOUGH and get back to ourselves! Sometimes, it is difficult to know where to start. If this seems to be a concern, then a therapist is a great way to assist you in unveiling and maintaining your Best Self.
