My therapeutic foundation builds from cognitive-behavioral approaches such as REBT and DBT and pulls in from a variety of approaches to create a person-centered plan for reaching a person's stated goals.
You will not go where you have not yet been without learning to do what you have not yet done. Many seek wellness, peace, joy, and such believing they must discover it for themselves, by themselves. Yet we see example after example that the most successful have guides, coaches, mentors, or counselors.

I tailor my approach to the individual needs of each client and utilize a diverse array of counseling approaches, such as person-centered therapy, attachment-based therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
I have seen both professionally and personally how transformative the therapeutic process can be when seeking change, growth, and healing. I focus on individuals and couples whose concerns may include anxiety, depression, trauma, or relationship problems. My goal is to provide clients a safe and nonjudgmental space to explore and process their pain and help them reflect on how their experiences influence their perception of themselves, others, and the world. With empathy, understanding, acceptance, and encouragement, I work with clients on integrating changes so that they have the tools they need to live a happy and healthy life.

Since the beginning of my career I have worked extensively with mindfulness based therapies like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.
Life throws so much at us. Often our natural instinct is to cling to the happy times and push away pain and suffering. However, learning to accept difficult situations and accept change is possible through guidance and feedback. Learning to act effectively to accept change and to face the places where we need to improve is an act of courage that does not appear overnight. I believe in evidence-based and practical strategies to help my clients improve their lives and emotional well-being. I believe that change is not only possible but inevitable.

I am EMDR trained, and often use CBT and DBT skills to improve functioning.
Being a human can be difficult and sometimes we need help along the way to get unstuck. Seeking therapy is a vital first step to healing. In therapy, I will walk with you to aid you in bettering yourself and overcoming your struggles by developing healthy coping skills, challenging unhelpful beliefs about yourself, and accepting you where you are in your journey. I use a non-judgmental, collaborative approach to create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I seek to understand, accept, and facilitate change using an approach that best fits your needs.

My theoretical orientation lies in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a strength based approach as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness.
My passion lies in working with adults, adolescents, and families. My experience has been working on a variety of issues including trauma, mood d/o, anxiety, self-exploration and understanding how our thinking affects our feelings and behavior. I enjoy assisting patients with identifying messages taken from life experiences that drive our choices and behavior in order to give each individual a better understanding of self. It is this understanding that brings awareness of habituated behavior patterns, effective communication skills and balance in our daily lives. Skills that are useful to patients outside of the therapeutic setting.

Feeling overwhelmed? Out of control? Dealing with major life changes? Or desiring a life change that you just can't quite grasp? Each of us is created with the ability to manage life's challenges but we don't always see clearly amidst the struggle. Connecting with someone in a safe, affirming, non-judgmental, and solution-focused environment can help you uncover your inner-strengths and see a way out from those feelings of suffering. With more than 18 years of practice experience, Sarah is well equipped to walk with you through any challenge.

Since no single approach is the right one for every individual, I have extensive training in a range of evidence-based tools including EMDR Therapy, DBT , Counseling, Yoga, and Meditation to help you reconnect with yourself and live an authentic life.
Life is difficult for all of us at times, and it can be normal to become stuck in survival mode following traumatic events or severe life stressors. My heartfelt passion is to facilitate the gap between these temporary survival modes of reaction and a lifestyle that has you or your loved one feeling safe and living in a way that feels unshakably true to yourself and your ideals.

I work from a compassionate, person-centered perspective that includes Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Internal Family Systems, and EMDR.
Suffering, while valuable, doesn’t have to define you or your story. If you’re wanting to move beyond old hurts, or feeling stuck despite desiring change, together we can re-author your story to include healthier ways of thinking, feeling, and being. In addition to my office in Brookside, KCMO, I am also offering sessions via Telehealth for those who do not wish to leave their homes due to COVID-19 (client must reside in MO).

Taking the first steps in finding a therapist can be an overwhelming and intimidating experience. This I know, as well as how important it is to find someone that you can be open with and trust.

If you are a human person looking to improve and understand your experiences with living, I am here to help. Whether this is your first experience with counseling or you are well-seasoned in the ways of talk therapy, I'm glad you are exploring the idea.

What type of Kansas City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Kansas City?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
