Sarah Mehta is a queer, BIPOC, neurodivergent (ADHD) therapist and entrepreneur. She is passionate about supporting queer, neurodivergent, AFAB women and gender-expansive professionals of color who work in the creative or service/helping industries (including other therapists, doctors, teachers, marketers, real estate agents, and more). Many of her clients find themselves struggling to sustain their physical, mental, and emotional energy, questioning the impact of their family upbringing on their adult lives, or feeling lost, confused, disconnected, or frustrated in their current or historical relationships.
Sarah primarily uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with her clients, which is a unique approach that focuses on teaching practical skills to help individuals develop an effective relationship with painful emotions, thoughts, and sensations. Sarah also offers EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Processing), which supports individuals by connecting them to their own unique strengths and resources to help them process recent or past trauma.
Sarah's sessions usually involve a diverse combination of verbal processing, psychoeducation, and skills practice. She considers therapy an active process and often assigns skills or reflective activities for her clients to complete outside of sessions. Sarah also weaves in humor, pop culture references, and metaphors throughout her sessions. She frequently references the impacts of systemic barriers, such as capitalism, heteronormativity, the patriarchy, weightism, sizism, queer and transphobia, racism, and abelism, while working with clients.
Sarah works to support her clients by helping them channel their energy towards doing what matters- whether that means setting boundaries, prioritizing self-care, creating a sustainable work-life balance, developing skills to support a neurodivergent brain and body, or healing trauma- rather than spending their energy trying to avoid, numb, compartmentalize, or run from their painful emotions, thoughts, or memories. Her priority is collaborating with her clients to create a life that works for them rather than against them.
