I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

Difficult times in relationships can often be gifts in that they open the door to a deeper exploration of ourselves and those closest to us. Seen in this light, therapy can be a step towards mutual evolution, rather than just a problem-solving endeavor. I work well with couples and families,helping to create a safe , trusting atmosphere where people can get more in touch with their feelings and express them to others close to them.I also work with individuals who have relationship issues.

My name is Sarah Marie and I work with adults who feel like their inner critic is controlling their life. Their anxiety has overridden their playfulness. They fear they give too much power to other people's opinion of them. Often they are unsure if their relationships are healthy and if they are dating they don't want to repeat patterns they know do not work. This lack of confidence and ease with self, plus the anxiety about the health of their relationships has resulted in all or some of the following issues: generalized anxiety, social anxiety, depression and/or a general lack of joyfulness and playfulness.
