Professional statement

Sarah Whitledge is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Bowling Green, KY. Sarah enjoys working with neurodivergent clients. Sarah has extensive experience working with individuals with ADHD, austism spectrum disorder, and anxiety. Many of her clients seek new coping strategies after feeling overwhelmed with daily life. She is also passionate about providing new and expecting mothers the support they need to adjust to their new ways of living. Her goal is to empower clients to live confidently and comfortably despite their challenges.

Sarah’s approach to therapy draws from Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She teaches clients how to assess their thoughts and identify any negative patterns that impact their moods. Clients learn how to address their assumptions and self-judgments to view situations from varying perspectives. Sarah also practices narrative therapy as a way to empower clients to reclaim their stories and memories. She strives to make each client feel heard, valued, and respected through her kind, empathetic personality.

Sarah earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Western Kentucky University. She has over 10 years of experience supporting clients grow and succeed in their lives. She has an additional training and certification in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C), which she uses to support many women who come to work with her. Sarah is also Board Certified in Telemental Health (BC-TMH) to ensure that she provides the best telehealth services possible. She has two cats named Rasputin and Plop (seen in the photos above) who often make appearances in her sessions.


Message to clients

I look forward to getting to know you! I have always said that a lot of success in therapy is based around the rapport and personalities matching well with the therapist and the client. I work hard to ensure you have a safe space to be heard. I am a pretty straight forward therapist that does not sugar coat things. If you're looking for help with advocating and speaking up for yourself, I am definitely here to help! Please feel free to call/text/email if you have any questions or if you would like a free consultation to see if we would be a good fit. Talk to you soon!
