Professional statement

Sarah Easton is a licensed clinical social worker who earned her masters from the University of Chicago. Prior to starting in private practice, Sarah worked in community mental health, as well as for many years as a clinician at the Palo Alto VA Medical Center. Within the VA, she helped manage an intensive outpatient program and provided individual and group psychotherapy for veterans dealing with addiction and trauma.

Sarah specializes in working with addiction, grief and loss, trauma, spiritual development, and relationship issues. Her approach to therapy is informed by the integration of psychodynamic (Jungian), behavioral (DBT), and body-centered modalities (Hakomi and MBSR). She believes that traditional talk therapy can be powerful alone, but integrating mindfulness of the body can more adequately address experiences in the present moment and help transform deeply ingrained beliefs or patterns. Additionally, Sarah has witnessed how behavioral therapies can offer much needed structure and skills to help cultivate a sense of emotional resilience and the development of healthy relationships. Sarah's therapeutic approach is warm, relational, and accepting. Sarah’s curiosity, care and attentive presence will create a safe and supportive space for reflection and change on each client’s journey towards healing and growth.

Sarah is available for in-person appointments in Berkeley and Redwood City. She is also available online for all California residents.
