About

I work to help you reach higher levels of inner peace, happiness, self-compassion & wellbeing. I've done thousands of sessions & apply empathy, strength building, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, CBT, Solution-Focused, EMDR, Narrative & Compassion-Focused Therapy. I provide both in-person & Telehealth sessions. I work with clients to create personalized happiness & self-compassion plans to figure out exactly how to get them where they want to be to have their best lives possible:) I specialize in working w/ children, couples, & individuals with stress & trauma. I'm able to provide lower cost session options for tele-health than in-person.
I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MT 4262) & currently completing my 2nd doctorate with a focus on happiness training. I hold a PhD, 2 Master's degrees, am a certified clinical hypnotherapist and a registered yoga and mindfulness instructor. I'm also an Adjunct Professor at USF. Testimonials can be found on www.drsaraspowart.com.
I provide traditional 1-hour therapy sessions, 2 -3 hour intensives & outdoor nature therapy. I don't want finances to be an obstacle for anyone to receive treatment and am happy to work with your individual circumstances. I believe the most important thing is to improve your life situation. I can be contacted at www.drsaraspowart.com with any questions:)
