Sara helps to guide her clients by teaching them how to manage their stress and overwhelm, connect to a community of caregivers, and find the resilience they need to keep moving forward on their path for change.

Many of Sara’s client’s seek out help because they feel the continual pressure, overwhelm, and loss of self that can come from stress, overwhelm, and anxiety. Before beginning therapy with Sara, clients may feel hopeless, worry endlessly, fear what will happen next, and not know what to do to feel some relief.

She offers counseling sessions in the comfort of the home, or other preferred location, through virtual telehealth video sessions. She can see clients throughout the state of Florida.
