Professional statement

Sarah Harmon is a therapist in downtown Boston with a passion for holistic approaches to mind and body wellness. Along with traditional psychotherapy, her melded approach may include mind/body work, yoga, mindfulness, positive psychology, and/or coaching to best help clients navigate their personal journey to wellness. She is an experienced yoga instructor with over 200 hours of training and 1000+ hrs of teaching.

Sarah specializes in working with college students and adults on anxiety, depression, stress management, life transitions, and relationship struggles. She believes that achieving wellness is an active and dynamic process of becoming aware, taking responsibility, and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life, while also an individual journey that requires a personalized approach. She offers an engaging therapeutic experience, including loving support and feedback, to guide clients in their process of gaining awareness and making positive change in their lives.

When Sarah is not working with individual therapy clients or teaching yoga, she is most likely somewhere outside, sailing on the Boston Harbor or skiing in New England.


Message to clients

Achieving ‘wellness’ is an active and dynamic process of becoming aware, taking responsibility, and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. It is also an individual journey that requires a personalized approach. Finding someone to help you on this journey is essential as loving support, feedback, and guidance are crucial to the challenging and life-long process of gaining awareness and making positive change in your life.
I am passionate about holistic therapy, based on personal experience and thousands of hours working with clients. I would be honored to join and support you on your own personal journey.
