Professional statement

You’ve been struggling for a long time pretending you’re ok. Everything seems to be out of control. Your moods are all over the place & you’re losing it almost daily. You worry about everything and panic all the time. The worst is that your relationships are falling apart because of your behavior. You just want to be loved & you don’t understand why relationships only bring you pain.

You tell yourself, “This isn’t supposed to happen. I’m at the top of my game and I can’t break down. What will people think?”

The thought of finding a therapist and going to counseling makes you feel sick. You're afraid you'll be dismissed, told you’re overreacting, or worse, being asked, “what on Earth do you have to be so upset about?” It’s so hard to trust people…

You want a therapist who “gets it”; someone who isn’t silently judging you… Someone who helps you feel not so crazy.

Sara Weand is a nationally certified, Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania, who loves to help people, like you, feel heard, keep relationships, and learn to deal with the sh*t life throws at you. For over 20 years, Sara worked in the mental health field, fine-tuning her clinical skills and finding her passion with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Sara helps clients understand that their problems are not always solved by “changing their thinking” & that their continued suffering isn't from character deficits. Sara’s clients find relief from their misery by learning to trust their own emotional experiences & solve the problems that are causing them pain. Clients learn to find acceptance and challenge themselves to make changes that are needed to deal with life, strengthen relationships, and create a life worth living.


Message to clients

Your life feels out of control and you fear you're going crazy. You don't understand why relationships bring you so much emotional pain. You feel anxious all the time and you don't know how to deal with it all. You just want to feel better; to find relief from all of the emotional distress. It's just too hard to take anymore.

You've been told you "overreact"; are "too sensitive" and you begin to think those people are right. You're desperate to feel better and just want the worrying to stop and go away. But, that debilitating anxiety and emotional pain don't go away. So you try to pretend things are ok and dismiss how you're feeling because when you've tried to cope before, you regretted it. You were left feeling helpless, guilty, and ashamed.

I know you desperately want to keep those relationships with the people you love the most. I know you just want to make sure you're not crazy. I get it. When you work with me, I can help you find that inner peace you've been craving and desperate for. You are not doomed to be this way for the rest of your life. You don't need to wait any longer to find relief from your emotional pain.

Reach out today by calling me or scheduling your own video consultation for therapy on my website.
