I use experiential methods - AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and EFT ( Emotionally Focused Therapy) in my work and have seen incredible transformation and growth.
Whether you are struggling in your relationship, dealing with loneliness from the multiple issues we've dealt with the past year (pandemic, grief, trauma), or simply needing to process some things with someone objectively, I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a platform for deep transformation and continued growth.

Welcome to my page!! My name is Sarah Logan and here we are all individuals and have unique needs. Being a therapist expands how being a caregiver allows me to see you in a way that might have been missing before. My training in therapy has allowed me to see the "both/and" perspective. I am able to understand my clients' point of view from their side of the fence as I become more engaged in their journey. It is truly amazing what lending an empathetic ear and offering support can do for someone!

I believe that each person has a unique story. Our families, communities, and systems shape us, just as we influence those around us. With this understanding, I value a relational, client-centered approach to therapy. My goal is to partner with clients to alleviate suffering and foster self-examination, meaning making, and change. I seek to help clients unlock more fulfilling lives by establishing an understanding of both present context and past relationships.

Everything feels hard. Like too much. You’re exhausted, anxious, and emotionally running on empty though you expect yourself to have it all together. As a responsible, empathic, and considerate person, you put major effort into all your roles--work, relationships, etc. But you re-hash conversations and second guess yourself, afraid to make a mistake. Did you get it right and meet the expectations? What if you get it wrong and push someone away? What the hell is “getting it right” anyway? You don't want to disappoint anyone, but the traditions and tools you learned no longer work for you or feel like they’re holding you back.

Prevention is always preferred. In life the saying goes 'luck favors the prepared'. In counseling, you are most effective when you can prevent struggles compared to reacting to them after they have begun. At Awaken360, we recognize that you and your family may recognize subtle changes in one another before anyone else does. At Awaken360 our heart is to reach people before struggles, mistakes, and hurt feelings begin to pile up and cause real damage not only to relationships, but your ability to have a happy life and future. We believe no situation is too far for help or repair and we seek to partner with you as you work to overcome the following struggles: histories of abuse, adoption or foster care struggles, attachment issues, infertility, stress management, marital/premarital counseling, emotional instability, impulsive or high-risk behaviors, separation or divorce, suicidal ideations, history of self harm, substance use/abuse, anger/aggression, involvement in judicial system, depression, anxiety, and trauma. Visit Awaken360.org to see real change that lasts and inquire about our three treatment options: Outpatient Counseling, Youth Therapeutic Academy, and Family Intensives.

The saying, "It is the relationship that heals," guides my work with clients. I aim to be the skilled confidant that accompanies them as they gain insight into their situation and who they are as an individual. Growing in self understanding helps them make decisions they can incorporate in their life and make their own. Their "new normal" becomes a way of life as they grow to employ the new tools they've gained in therapy. My ideal clients do not want psychological platitudes in the form of advice but want to be stretched and challenged.

Are you struggling to maintain your emotional health due to a specific life situation, unhealthy lifestyle or medical health issue? This is not uncommon, and the fact is you are not alone. Many people have the desire to make a positive change; however lack knowledge, guidance, or the tools needed to do so. Others may require motivation for behavior change or support in a challenging season. Regardless of your particular circumstance and needs, we can work together to make your goals a reality. I provide therapy and psychological evaluations/testing. Non denominational Christian Counseling based on the Bible is offered as requested.

Life can be overwhelming, exhausting, and even lonely at times. The everyday battle of constant pressures and overload of doubts, worries, and negativity can sometimes be too much. Especially, as a child, adolescent, or young adult who is trying to navigate the confusing balance of school, relationships, and expectations, while handling the changes that come with growing up. No matter where those pressures are coming from, having a safe space where you can connect, be heard, and work through those situations and emotions can be life changing.

Healthy boundaries, relationships and communication can be really hard. Feelings of doubt, anxiety and /or depression can influence our behaviors, emotions and mood. If these or other areas of concern are preventing you from reaching your full potential, counseling can be an empowering experience. We open our lives and our hearts to strangers in counseling. It’s natural to want to find a person whom you can relate to and trust before beginning this journey. I look forward to partnering with you during your time of discovery. As an EMDR practioner we can discuss if this integrated approach is right for you.

None of us come out of childhood without some cuts and bruises. Sometimes physical, but more oftentimes emotional. For many, these emotional wounds are still tender, open, lightly dressed with a bandage, forgotten, or even neglected. So when these emotions get touched we find ourselves reacting in ways that aren’t in line with the kind of person we want to be.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Springfield Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
