Sarah Macedo is a therapist in Bristol, RI with expertise in helping individuals with anxiety, depression, and trauma, particularly survivors of sexual assault. She also is passionate about working with the LGBTQ community and works with individuals struggling with their sexuality and gender identity. Located a 4min drive from Roger Williams University, she sees many students, especially in the law and forensic psych programs, who are managing academic pressures.
Sarah works with young adults, college students, adults, parents, and couples to find a creative treatment approach that works well for the specific issues the clients would like to focus on. She practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practices, narrative therapy, and supportive therapy. As a former yoga instructor, her interventions are aware of the mind/body connection and the impact of emotional health on the physical body.
Sarah emphasizes starting where the individual is when they walk in the door, and creates an empathetic and supportive space in which to do so. She works hard to help individuals who have been feeling stuck in their past experiences with mental health care.
