About

I help athletes and high performers who are focused on making it to the next level, recovering from injury or want to maximize their production. I see adolescents and adults for a range of clinical issues including ADHD, PTSD, sleep issues, anxiety, depression and anger management.
I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist who is solution focused and goal oriented. I offer a Mental Skills Training curriculum to help athletes develop confidence, enhance focus and improve performance. I am trained in EMDR and help people overcome trauma. I have worked extensively with head injuries and return to play. I teach Mindfulness and Meditation.
Taking the first step towards getting help is often the most challenging part when you are under a lot of stress. It can feel like you are too overwhelmed to deal with things at all, especially if you work in a high performance environment. Once you make the call, you will feel a sense of some progress, and that will motivate you to keep going.

Sara Hickmann's Groups

Sport Concussion Education and Support Group

Being diagnosed with a head injury can be anxiety provoking. In this psychoeducational group, we will review sleep hygiene habits and how to keep your thinking balanced and positive. One session will be taught by a sport nutritionist and devoted to healthy eating and identifying foods nourishing to the brain. We will review breathing techniques and practice meditation. Members will have an opportunity to share with others who are going through as similar journey so they don't feel alone or isolated in their recovery. Collaboration of care with Dr. Hickmann and your primary provider is encouraged.
