Professional statement

Sarah believes that therapy needs to be as unique as the individual and originate from a place of compassionate and collaborative curiosity. She takes an eclectic approach that draws from somatic, dynamic, and relational schools of thought, with the underlying belief that all individuals already possess the ingredients needed to heal.

Sarah's background predominantly involves working with young and emerging adults and athletes. She tends to be quite active in sessions and trusts immensely in the profound healing that can come from a genuine therapeutic relationship.

Additionally, Sarah advocates for the use of yoga and meditation as complementary practices to mental health treatment and self-actualization. Her specialties include working with anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. She has also spent extensive time working with and researching the impact of athletics on identity formation.
