Professional statement

Sarah has a passion for helping those wanting to improve their mental wellness at whatever stage of adulthood they are in.. She uses person centered approaches to meet help the individual based on their own unique needs, desires, and personality. She is able to help others see and use their strengths when they have difficulty believing in themselves. She understands sometimes it is necessary to learn to trust others again and communicate more openly, while other times it's important to build boundaries to assert ones needs. She is focused on seeing the individual meet their goals and overcome difficulties in their life.

Sarah is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with nearly 15 years of experience and has received training in DBT and CBT skills, cultural competency, suicide prevention, and trauma informed care.

Sarah has a telehealth (video) practice based out of North Providence, RI to make therapy convenient for others and has late afternoon and evening sessions available throughout the week with immediate openings. She accepts most commercial (private/employer based) insurance plans.

Message to clients

I know that seeking mental health services can make one feel weak but I challenge you to view it as a strength, to help yourself be the best version of yourself and others you care for in your life. It takes courage to take this step outside of your comfort zone. Those who attend therapy with me understand that it takes time to work on the areas needing attention in your life. I like to help you identify coping skills and resources that work the best for you. It's also good to know that some sessions are lighter than others! It's a place to sometimes cry, sometimes laugh, learn, reflect, grow and ultimately feel better about who you are! It's an honor to spend time with you each week in your journey!
