Professional statement

Sarah is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in evidence-based treatments for life transitions, existential crises, women’s issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma. She completed her undergraduate degree at Georgia State University, received her Master's of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Clemson University, and has been practicing since 2016.

Sarah's ideal clients are individuals in their 20s and 30s who are experiencing stress, generalized anxiety, depression, existential dread, family of origin concerns, LGBTQ-related concerns, maladaptive perfectionism, or trouble with their relationships. While she has honed her basic skills treating depression and anxiety, she also really enjoys helping people through life transitions, unpacking unhelpful thought patterns, and using an existential, "big-picture" approach. Sarah works with her clients to identify any thought patterns, beliefs or narratives that clients might find distressing, unhealthy or no longer useful, and explore how to holistically experience life the way you find most fulfilling and meaningful. She enjoys being really collaborative and knows that while you're coming to her for help and perspective, YOU are the expert on your own experience and you are guiding the goals in the therapeutic process. She is committed to ongoing allyship, regularly attending lived-experience-led trainings, and is trans-, queer-, and genderqueer-competent and affirming.

Sarah is known for unprecedented responsiveness, her warm smile, and her ability to balance being easy to talk to with getting “real” when need be. When she's not in session, she enjoys traveling, finding new podcasts, cooking, and going on walks with her husband and their golden retriever, Teddy. Sarah knows taking the first step to find a therapist isn't easy and does not take that show of strength lightly—she is committed to her clients’ wellness and her number one goal is client growth and satisfaction.

Message to clients

Sometimes we all need a little perspective. Sometimes when individuals feel overwhelmed by pain, confusion, sadness, & anxiety, it feels impossible or improbable for things to get any worse, much less any better. Do you feel stuck, suffocated, or always just a little bit behind? It's so easy to feel like who and where we want to be is unattainable. I know that you are the expert on your own life experience, and I believe what I bring to the table are the tools to help you feel more empowered, confident, and at peace with who you are. Sometimes gaining outside perspective & validation is what you need to come to an understanding of who you are at your very core, and to like the person you find there!
