Professional statement

Sara Knight is an holistic counselor and coach in Rhode Island specializing in mindfulness-based practices for a variety of issues. She helps individuals through career and personal life changes, including adjustments in marriage and family life, and end-of-life experiences. Other areas include anxiety, depression, peri- and post-partum depression, borderline personality disorder, sobriety and couples counseling. She enjoys working with clients who are ready to build skills to move into the future. Sara sees individuals from a variety of cultural, relational, and gender identities, and considers the family's culture of origin and personal goals when offering care.

As both a counselor and doula, Sara has particular expertise in women's issues, pregnancy, pregnancy loss, childbirth support, and reproductive health. She sees women in the experience of postpartum depression, helping them to build a support system within the home environment and to foster healthy attachment with their babies. Sara acknowledges that this type of depression can arise at any time during the first year after childbirth.

As an advocate and as a queer-identifying person, Sara welcomes those individuals and couples who identify as LGBTQIA++ and offers a safe place to explore questions, ideas, experiences of non-heteronormative life.

Sara is an advocate and has training in working with neuro-divergent individuals and their families. (ADHD, ASD, etc)

Sara utilizes a multi-faceted approach to therapy, offering skill-building, with practical and mindfully supportive practices to contribute to personal growth and increase contentment in every day life. Her clients are typically engaged in small experiments, or homework, between sessions to highlight their existing strengths and use these competencies to move through challenges.


Message to clients

Therapy is a mode of relational experience. Over the course of the initial sessions, I endeavor to build a trusting and open relationship with my clients so that we can address their major areas of concern in a high-functioning interaction where strengths and competencies are highlighted, resources are identified, and goals are discovered and evolve.

Note on sliding scale due to COVID-19: When I offer a sliding scale to my clients, we have a conversation through which we arrive at a reasonable fee based on their honest assessment of what is affordable to them.  We work it out together.  No one should be without access to good therapy, especially during these extremely difficult times.  That said, for those who are experiencing less financial hardship may elect to pay more, their generosity will offset the need of others and allow me to care for more individuals in greater need.  We are in this together.
