I am a licensed psychologist with a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and a masters in marriage and family therapy. My education and practice have provided opportunities to gain extensive experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I have found success in emphasizing my client's experience and creating a strong therapist / client relationship. This approach comes natural to me and helps the counseling process feel less intimidating. I have particular interest in: ADHD, autism spectrum, depression, anxiety, relational problems, premarital counseling, oppositional children, addiction, self-esteem, grief and loss, and adjustment to change and difficulty.

As a counselor, I believe it is my role to provide a safe and compassionate space for each person that chooses to share their experience with me. My job is to help each person I see to explore past hurts, to put voice to feelings, and to help each person make meaning out of their life. It is my belief that many of us walk this world not fully allowing ourselves to come into our own, due to a fear of not being accepted and due to limiting beliefs given to us by others and society.

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!

Life becomes too difficult; you need an objective someone to talk to, listen to your story, and provide encouragement that you can not only survive what you are going through, but work to find purpose and meaning in the midst of the storm. The most important aspect of therapy is the Client-Therapist relationship. Once it is determined that the Client is comfortable with me, then it is a collaborative effort to help facilitate the healing process through the life changes the Client faces. My job is to provide a safe place for change and growth to happen.

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.

My approach to therapy is rooted in the belief of impermanence, human suffering, and the power of hope. I believe that everyone needs support and someone to talk to. I am very understanding, compassionate, and people say that I have a natural ability to determine what someone may be thinking or feeling. I am intuitive, friendly, easy to talk to, and relatable. I have been through many obstacles and hardships myself and would not have been successful, if it wasn't for reaching out for support and guidance. I promise to help bring clarity and understanding to your situation or mental health issues.
