Meet Sarah

If you weren’t a mental health professional, what would you be doing?

Working in a bakery – I love to bake and would love making treats and breads all day.

What is your favorite quote?

“Beautiful girl, you can do hard things.”

A book that you think everyone should read:

I love to read and could never choose just one. My hope is that everyone reads what they want to read and experiences the joy of losing themselves in a story different than their daily life.

What do you do for self-care/self-love?

Spend time with family and friends, travel, read, visit the spa. Work to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

What is your favorite place?

The beach, anywhere.

Who is your ideal client?

Individuals looking to seek support and strive for change. Actively engaged. Young adults through adulthood

Why do you like being a therapist?

I am honored to walk along side individuals as they strive to become their best selves.

What is something you wish people knew about therapy?

It is worth the risk! It is scary to step into a new space with a stranger. If it is the right fit it will feel comfortable and safe very quickly.

Why/how can people benefit from therapy?

I work to provide a safe space to explore hard topics in a judgement free and compassionate environment. This is hard to find in other places in the world.

What is something you’d like clients to know about you (or how you work)?

I strive to be supportive, empathetic and provide encouragement. I am flexible and able to adjust my style so it is best for you.

What does success in therapy look like to you?

Feeling strong, empowered and capable to manage life.

What are your thoughts about the “stigma” of therapy?

Yes, it’s still there, but mostly in our own minds. Society is much more open and accepting of therapy as a positive resource. We often allow our own judgement and fears to hold us back from trying something new.
