Are you seeking clarity in some area of your life? Do you want to work through complex emotions or traumatic experiences? Are you wanting to challenge negative thinking patterns or learn new techniques to cope? Do you desire to come into a fuller understanding of yourself or your relationships? While the individual reason someone reaches out for help may vary, one thing remains the same…everyone is loveable, deserving and worthy of a satisfying life. Whether it is a painful upbringing or a recent life event, we can find ourselves ridden with heavy thoughts and emotions that interrupt our ability to have an enjoyable life.

Are you struggling with anxiety and depression due to life transitions such as divorce, infertility, the death of a loved one, college stress or the loss of a dream, and seeking Christian counseling? Have you experienced trauma in your life and you feel stuck under the weight of worry and fear? Are “shoulds” and “musts” leaving you paralyzed with thoughts of “I’m not good enough” and “I don’t matter”? Often people wait to reach out until they feel depleted, resentful, and ashamed. I believe we get stuck due to our thinking, and the way we get unstuck is to change our thinking! But is it possible? Yes! It doesn't have to be this way!

Sometimes In our co-journey of life, the issues and problems we face and try to resolve can be very difficult and our usual methods of coping aren't working. Asking for help is okay. With some added insight and guidance from a counselor, you can often get back into life with additional coping skills and renewed energy. For over thirty years I have been able to help individuals, couples and families find their way through these transitions in life. I base my therapy on the belief that all people are worthy and deserving of a fulfilling life.

Are you tired of listening to that committee in your head - you know, the one that says you are stupid or wrong or that you're not worthy and don't fit in? At Cerebral Landscaping, we are all about embracing our quirks, whether it's being as neurodiverse as a Rubik's Cube, having more issues than People magazine, or wanting a self-esteem boost. Sometimes, if we hear something enough, we can think it's true. This often happens with negative messages we hear or tell ourselves. We are not here to endure or cause suffering. Together, we can find another way.

Navigating life and everything that comes your way can be really hard. I recently heard someone call the last few years a dumpster fire. In some regards, they aren’t wrong. Even when you are trying your best it can feel really tough. That’s when someone listening, validating, or helping support and encourage you can be helpful and powerful. It’s my goal to provide a safe space and vibe for you to share your story, do some unpacking, take what you want, leave the shit behind and hopefully pick up some tools or insights to help you move through “it” and thrive.

Life has a way of letting us know when it is time to reach out. Are you feeling overwhelmed, burdened, stressed, and ready for change, but not sure where to begin? Do you feel you have more to offer, but feel stuck? Then counseling is the right setting to have a conversation that may open doors to problem solving and provide tools for guidance. Growing up working in the family restaurant and being active as a student athlete, I didn't have the tools to manage the stress around me. While I was helping others to perform as a personal trainer, I knew I needed to become a counselor to help in a more wholistic way.

My name is Sara Campbell and I am so glad you are here. Starting therapy is hard and scary especially if you've had a bad experience with therapy in the past. Or maybe you have been struggling by yourself for so long, the idea of opening up and being vulnerable is difficult. I try my best to make it easier by focusing on building trust from the beginning (this means we go at your pace) and making your goals the focus of our sessions. I am passionate about working with the perinatal population as well as anyone experiencing anxiety, depression, or general life stressors.

I am trained in Child Centered Play Therapy, which is a research based, developmentally appropriate mental health intervention for kids. Child Centered Play Therapy uses play - which is the natural language of children - as a means to allow children to process big feelings, inner experiences, struggles and triumphs. My job is to facilitate this play and establish a safe, therapeutic relationship with the child. This relationship, paired with a safe, consistent play environment, has the potential to decrease problematic behaviors, increase self-esteem, increase positive coping skills and improve overall functioning.
