Message to clients

I understand how difficult it can be to find a therapist you feel comfortable with. The search can be overwhelming, especially when you're in need of support. I build my practice around creating a safe and comfortable space for anyone needing an ear to listen, no matter your difficulties, background or needs. While I always encourage you to continue meeting with people until you find the right fit, I'm always happy to sit with you, wherever you are emotionally, and provide you with my full support and professional experience. Welcome!

Client testimonials

"I've had four sessions with Sarah and I can't even begin to describe my gratitude! Since our first phone conversation, I have felt comfortable and supported. I have been very hesitant and almost afraid to begin therapy, yet I have found myself excited and looking forward to sessions with Sarah. She is easy to talk to and knows exactly when to ask questions, when to dig a little deeper, and when to move on. I am so happy and grateful to have found her! Cannot recommend her enough."
