Therapy is a commitment to yourself, a belief that you can move forward in difficult, confusing, or even tragic situations. When you enter therapy, you are engaging in a positive belief in your ability to create meaning and find new pathways forward. Therapy is a process where you can heal old and new wounds, discover your boundaries, remember strength and create different experiences that support your life. I have over 20 years of experience working with people from various walks of life who have experienced depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Whether you are struggling with feelings of low self-esteem and self-blame or overwhelm and worry, it is painful to be stuck in a never-ending loop of negativity and uncertainty. These beliefs impact all aspect of our lives from our relationships with our loved ones and friends to our careers and education. Often, we get stuck continuing the same patterns because we don’t know what else to do and we can feel at a loss. The good news is, you have already taken the first step in changing the cycle just by being here and for that, I congratulate you!

Making the choice to start therapy can be a scary step. I believe that every client should be supported by a therapist who brings a sense of realness, support, encouragement, and knowledge to each and every session. You should be able to walk into every session with a feeling of comfort and safety discussing your struggles. My goal is to bring those qualities while helping clients find relief, understanding, and their purpose.

I help people who have anxiety, overwhelm or stressful relationships find clarity and serenity. In 2014, after years of talk therapy and recovery work, I became frustrated by the lack of progress in a few key areas. I decided to go deeper and I combined "parts work" with a mediation facilitation process. The healing I experienced was astounding. I researched other practitioners who were working at these deep levels, began studying evidence based techniques with Sarah Peyton, and I implemented these life changing models into my work. A past client posted: "Sara’s way of providing help creates peace in the battle zone of my brain."

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
