Are you constantly on edge or worried? Do you feel stuck in past pain? Or struggle to feel secure in relationships? Maybe you get flooded by big emotions or have learned to ignore your needs altogether? Humans were designed to face adversity, but we weren't meant to face it alone. Hey I'm Sara (she/her)! I'm passionate about helping clients find relief from anxiety and reconnect with their authentic selves after trauma. With a decade of experience in the trauma field, I specialize in treating adult women with a history of complex and relational trauma. I especially enjoy working with adult children of emotionally immature parents.
I'm a strengths-based de-pathologizing provider; I tailor treatment to client's needs and existing resources. My style is collaborative, compassionate & attachment focused. First, I join with clients in our shared humanity. Then I use my clinicial experience to draw from EMDR, IFS, the Flash Technique, Polyvagal Therapy, Compassion-focused Therapy and CBT.
With non-violence as a guiding principle, I offer a trauma informed, anti-racist, LGBTQ+ affirming, fat positive, pro-reproductive-freedom space. My hope is to empower clients with new perspectives, awareness and tools to foster growth. I consider it the greatest honor to join along side clients in their theraputic journey.

I utilize a bottom-up approach to trauma work which helps clients reconnect with their body, boundaries and needs. I am emotion focused and enjoy helping clients understand how early attachment wounds may impact their view of themselves and the world. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients manage anxiety related symptoms, at times using exposure and response prevention.
