Though insight is interesting and can be very helpful, I believe we have to feel something in our bones to be moved to make big changes in our lives. My great joy is guiding clients to find and embody their own ' aha! ' moments because that's when those big changes happen.

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."

Life can change in an instant, and not always for the better. After a trauma it can be hard to sleep, concentrate, or feel safe, even after the danger has passed. Some people wonder if they will ever be able to have a day without thinking about what happened.

I love this work. I get to know individuals and couples, learning about their unique identities, values, sufferings, and desires. Most of my clients are experiencing issues with relationships, intimacy, or grief: they feel stuck and seek help navigating the disorienting wilderness of their lives. We set goals together and I help draw on people's strengths to address the issues that concern them most. My ideal clients are curious and motivated, knowing they can do hard things.

Emotions are our rudder leading us through the seas of life, both stormy and calm. They are not something to be afraid of, ashamed of, or to run away from. When connected with and channeled in a healthy way, emotions are adaptive and effective guides for transformation and healing. We can sink or we can use the healing power of emotions to authentically navigate through our life journey. Whether this is your first time in therapy or you have past experience, whether you're looking for yourself or for couple's support - your needs, pain and joys deserve to be heard in an empathic, accepting and safe setting.
