Professional statement

Sarah Betz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and the Founder of Meadow Therapy - a group of inclusive therapists who work with adolescents and adults across the lifespan. Sarah specializes in trauma, including childhood trauma, emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse, codependency, mind-body work, addiction, PTSD, disassociation, anxiety, depression, and self-harm. She is also passionate about LGBTQIA-affirming, body-positive, and sex-positive therapy.

Sarah’s approach is eclectic and holistic—one that incorporates psychodynamic, relational, and trauma-informed lenses for treatment. She often uses mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), addiction models, and body-oriented therapies in sessions. She takes an individualized approach and helps clients identify the therapeutic tools that are the best fit for them.

Sarah enjoys integrating yoga into sessions when appropriate. She shows her clients certain poses to help manage and/or combat their symptoms. For example, she will give a client with depression energizing poses they can utilize at home.

Sarah works with her clients to develop long-lasting changes. She supports them on their journey toward healing by offering a safe, nonjudgmental space.


Message to clients

As a therapist and clinical supervisor at Meadow Therapy, I specialize in many areas, including trauma, anxiety, depression, body image, and mind-to-body psychotherapy. I - and the other great therapists here - also specialize in working with marginalized populations -- LGBTQIA+, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, Trans and Gender-Nonconforming, Self-Harming, Addicted, fat/larger-bodied, disabled, kink/BDSM, and polyamorous individuals. We offer individual therapy, group therapy, and couples/relationship therapy for adults, and will soon have individual and group therapy for adolescents.

I look forward to sharing in your journey toward healing. Starting the therapeutic journey can be difficult at first, and I welcome you to reach out for a free initial consultation.
