Sarah Monteleone is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Woodbridge, CT who sees adults across the lifespan, including offering parenting support. While she sees clients with a wide variety of issues, she has extensive experience in anxiety disorders, including both social and generalized anxiety, depression, college mental health, mindfulness, and trauma, including childhood trauma and single-incident trauma.
Sarah works especially well with clients who are interested in learning more about the mind-body connection and how they can use relaxation strategies and their imagination and breath to manage their symptoms and find more peace in their lives.
Sarah is also trained in the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping. This involves using fingertip tapping to apply pressure to energy points throughout the body. She finds that this approach is especially effective for clients who are either in high distress and need support in regulating their emotions or those with a history of trauma. Her sessions are client-centered and involve psychoeducation when appropriate.
Sarah focuses on the connection with her clients to ensure they feel safe and supported on this journey towards growth and healing. She also has a certification in Health Coaching from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and received her MSW from Southern Connecticut State University. She looks forward to meeting you.
