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 and Massachusetts residents.


Message to clients

Prepare to embark on a significant journey of self-discovery, where we'll delve into your challenges, relationships, and core values. Whether you're navigating intimate connections, battling chronic illness, wrestling with trauma, grieving a loss, or feeling overwhelmed, I'm here to offer guidance.

Together, we'll explore your past to shed light on your present, utilizing therapeutic methods to deepen insight and strengthen your mind-body connection. I'll empower you to move beyond surface-level narratives, allowing your experiences to be fully felt and understood, tapping into your inherent wisdom to create meaningful change. While traditional talk therapy holds its own power, integrating mindfulness practices that incorporate the body can provide a deeper access point for our experience. By addressing the present moment and reshaping entrenched beliefs or patterns, we can pave the way for lasting transformation.

You don't have to navigate this journey alone. Therapy is an act of bravery, a willingness to confront your inner world. In our sessions, we'll create a safe, nurturing environment where you can freely reflect, grow, and reclaim your life with compassionate support.
