About

Do you spend your time scrolling through Instagram thinking you're not (insert judgey word) enough? Are you constantly on edge or anxious? Do your mind and body feel stuck in past trauma? Maybe you feel unsettled with where you are in life? The human struggle is real! AND you don't have to go at it alone. Hey there! I'm Sara, a licensed clinical social worker and certified trauma professional. My additional MA in WGS provides a nuanced understanding of gender and sexuality. I focus on working with millennial and emerging adult women and gender expansive folks trying to navigate the intense uncertainty that is adulthood in 2022.
My style is collaborative, creative and person centered. I tailor each client's treatment plan to their specific needs/concerns with their pre-existing strengths in mind. I provide a body positive, pro-reproductive freedom, LGBTQ affirming, anti-racist space. Though I utilize a handful of evidence based modalities I center my relationship built with clients.
Friends, partners or family members may be great sources of support but are often quick to give advice or try to fix your problem. You won't find that here—as a therapist I'm here to provide a non-judgmental space in which I walk along side you as you do your own hard work. If you're interested in working together check out my website to learn even more!
