Professional statement

Society places a positive value on pleasure, and a negative value on pain. Naturally, many people spend their lives seeking pleasure to avoid pain, which often leads to disconnection, addiction, and mental health struggles.

Sarah works with people to sit with discomfort, rather than run from it, so they can eventually heal. By embracing pain, sadness, and struggle, Sarah’s clients overcome past traumas, addictive behaviors, and feelings of meaninglessness and purposelessness. As a result, clients become more comfortable exploring who they are, creating fulfilling relationships, and becoming more connected to the world around them.

Sarah creates a space where clients tap into their own internal wisdom. However, she also provides research-driven suggestions to help manage their challenges, thoughts and behaviors. By creating a nurturing environment where clients can be their true selves, Sarah facilitates recovery and growth, empowering people to live more mindfully and authentically.


Message to clients

Are you feeling stuck? Are you feeling this push and pull between wanting to move forward, but also feeling frozen in time? Together, we’ll untangle some of those webs, identify what’s holding you back, and find ways to live a more meaningful, fulfilling life.

I’m not your traditional, stoic type of therapist. My style is more laid back and personable, which allows for meaningful connection and exploration. I take a person-centered, holistic approach that’s tailored around your needs, values, and belief systems. Therefore, I pull from several therapeutic modalities that will help you address unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving, understand how your past impacts you today, and be more present in your life.

I expect clients to show up as their authentic selves. Therefore, I’ll also show up as my authentic self. I’ll laugh with you, keep you accountable, and hold space for you when challenging emotions come to the surface. While I maintain my professional and ethical boundaries, you’ll definitely see my human come out.
