I specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents, families, and individual adults using somatic methods that increase awareness of the body in the present moment. These methods allow past experiences that remain "stuck," within us to be contacted in the present and internal states can begin to shift. "Stories," or habitual patterns, that keep us from experiencing optimal well-being are interrupted and replaced with new possibilities. Somatic methods are effective in addressing a variety of treatment needs such as trauma, anxiety, depression as well as challenges with children and in families.

I have extensive experience working with children and families to resolve challenging child behaviors and stressful family dynamics. I am currently training in Somatic Experiencing®, a powerful, body-oriented method for trauma resolution. I combine somatic therapy methods with family therapy to facilitate rapid shifts in individual and family functioning.

I do home-based and school-based therapy visits to get a view of and work with children in their everyday environments.

Sarah Ross's Groups

Therapeutic Play Group for Children

This is a group for children who struggle or experience a sense of isolation. Group therapy for children offers a unique setting to reduce feelings of isolation and increase feelings of belonging as well as increase self esteem and confidence. These benefits often transfer to children's peer interactions outside of the group.
