You might be feeling overwhelmed by life's challenges. You might be over doing life the same way your parents did it. You might be tired of working the same unfulfilling job. You might be at your wits end with your children's behavior. You might wonder what's coming in your next season of life. You might be ready to divorce your mother. You might be a "strong" person that now feels overwhelmed by emotions. You might be ready to let go of the fears you've had all of your life.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. I have a love for people and a passion for helping. I enjoy aiding adults and older adolescents resolve anxiety, optimize their performance and reduce the impact of trauma on their daily lives.
My counseling style is warm and inviting. I often use humor in the counseling process and try to be as authentic as possible knowing that the only expert in the room is YOU. I empower clients to get in touch with their innate self and I never treat clients as a symptom, but rather as a whole person - mind, body and spirit.
I have served others in the capacity of counselor and therapist for thirteen years and I am truly honored and humbled to be a part of someone's healing process. Each therapeutic relationship is unique & I tailor my approach to each client's needs pulling from a wide variety of modalities including EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and creative approaches. In essence, my role is to meet people where they are and then gently guide them back to a healthy path where they can not only survive, but thrive.
My special areas of interest include anxiety, parenting, trauma survivors, ADHD/LD, and women's lifespan issues. It is my passion to see clients take hold of the lives they want to be living and to find renewed satisfaction in their relationships by learning: effective communication, self-understanding, direction, problem-solving skills, and self-acceptance.

I have observed Sara to possess quite above-average professionalism, notable conscientiousness, and commendable initiative. She is well-liked by her peers, and...held in high regard by her clinical clients.
Sara prides herself on continuous therapeutic and professional growth. I was amazed by her constant knowledge of current practices and thirst to continue to learn about "cutting edge" evidenced based practices. Sara possesses a unique work ethic. She has the ability to follow through... Sara is no doubt a professional who utilizes skill and technique to empower clients and create change - however, skill aside, Sara maintains her compassion for why she got into this field and works with folks from the heart and mind.
Sara's compassionate heart is what motivates her... This aspect of Sara's character is her foundation from which she works and interacts with [clients] and colleagues. Sara has many strengths that enable her to be a competent therapist. Sara is resourceful in finding different interventions that will assist her in individualizing her treatment. Sara makes sure that the best interest of the client is the grid that she filters all her decisions through. Sara's clients are given her best. Sara's ethical standards have always been high for herself and she has met that standard in her everyday practice. I find Sara to be an engaging, caring and empathic person. She is well balanced...
I really admire your calm assertiveness...I aspire to be like you!
