Professional statement

Sarah is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in downtown Boston. She specializes in evidence-based treatments for life transitions, existential crises, women’s issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma among adults. She also has extensive experience working with children and adults on the Autism Spectrum, individuals who are diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and families of children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).

Many of Sarah’s clients are individuals in their 20s and 30s who are experiencing stress, generalized anxiety, or situational anxiety caused by recent life events. These may be work and career related, such as starting a new job, fear of doing a poor job at work, or self-doubt; relationship-related, such as intimacy with partners and friends, or recovering from the breakup of a long-term relationship; and situational, such as recently moving to Boston and feeling lonely or disconnected. While she has honed her basic skills treating depression and anxiety, she also enjoys helping people through life transitions, such as getting married, changing jobs, navigating a breakup, etc.

For high-level thinkers, an existential approach can be helpful. This includes discussing what politics and current affairs mean for global wellbeing and/or navigating existential dread.

Sarah works with her clients to identify any triggers and explore whether their symptoms are situational or chronic.  She is goal-oriented and spends time asking her clients what they would like to accomplish in therapy and where they want to be in six to nine months. She enjoys being really collaborative and sees building a treatment plan as a team exercise.

Sarah is known for unprecedented responsiveness, her warm smile, and her ability to balance being easy to talk to with getting “real” when need be. When she's not in the therapy office, she enjoys traveling to new places, finding new podcasts, cooking, and trying to convince her boyfriend they need a Golden Retriever puppy. Sarah knows taking the first step to find a therapist isn't easy and does not take that show of strength lightly—she is committed to her clients’ wellness and gives her all to ensure progress in therapy.

Sarah completed her undergraduate degree at Georgia State University, received her Master's of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Clemson University. She looks forward to meeting you at her office, which is located near the Downtown Crossing T station.


Message to clients

Sometimes we all need a little perspective. Sometimes when individuals feel overwhelmed by pain, confusion, sadness, & anxiety, it feels impossible or improbable for things to get any worse, much less any better. Do you feel stuck, suffocated, or always just a little bit behind? It's so easy to feel like who and where we want to be is unattainable. I know that you are the expert on your own life experience, and I believe what I bring to the table are the tools to help you feel more empowered, confident, and at peace with who you are. Sometimes gaining outside perspective & validation is what you need to come to an understanding of who you are at your very core, and to like the person you find there!
