Professional statement

Sarah holds a space for clients to explore themselves, their past, present, and future, and work through challenges within each of those aspects. Through discussing and understanding relationships, trauma, and the effects on the self, her clients achieve self-discovery and self-acceptance.

She offers space for each individual to uncover and explore their true identity. Her clients will be free to explore complex emotions and ideas while setting goals for self-discovery and self-improvement.

Message to clients

Building a strong therapeutic relationship begins with an encouraging and accepting environment. Together we will work on exploring, understanding, and overcoming current and past life challenges, as well as self-discovery and self-acceptance. Issues surrounding trauma, relationships, and whatever else you need during our time together can be discussed.

I am committed to creating a safe, non-judgmental environment where you are free to explore your true self, share your deepest thoughts, and talk about your most intense emotions. Together we will explore your past and present, while envisioning a future, improved version of yourself.

From personal experience, I know how important mental healthcare is to each person’s overall well-being. Making your mental health a priority we will create together a set of boundaries you need with others in your life.
