Sarah has been an advocate within LGBTQ communities for over two decades and has specialized in working with LGBTQ people as a therapist for over ten years. Sarah founded Healing Room Counseling in 2015. In addition to working in private practice, Sarah has worked in several settings, including hospitals such as Emory and Grady as well as within university counseling centers. She has also worked with the National Football League and the National Hockey League.

Message to clients

Overwhelmed and grieving the state of the world? Struggling with placing the burden of other people's expectations on yourself? Seeking skilled, non-judgmental support that actually makes a difference? I've got you! I help people connect with themselves, significant others, and community so they can meaningfully engage in life.

I bring a decade of experience, training, and research in trauma, depression, and anxiety. With skilled support, you can find relief from deep sadness and distressing anxiety. We'll find movement in the stuck places, process trauma, and build self compassion.

Getting started is the second hardest part of therapy. I'll be there with skilled support! If you're curious about working together, send me a message to schedule a free 15-minute conversation.
