Professional statement

Sarah Windt is Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in evidenced-based therapy, specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a goal oriented model where the clients set their own goals and Sarah guides you with various methods and interventions in order to see symptom reduction quickly. With the use of brief mood surveys, Sarah will be able to measure your mood scores session to session in order to track symptom levels. Sarah works with adults of all ages who are highly motivated and committed to weekly appointments that will include "homework" in between sessions.

Sarah's professional background includes a combination of different therapeutic environments. Sarah received her MSW degree from the University of Pennsylvania and worked as a psychotherapist at Penn Medicine Outpatient Psychiatry Center and in various private practice settings since she graduated. Sarah has had the privilege of working with many clients from the LGBTQIA community as well as people from various racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Sarah utilizes two office locations in midtown and downtown Manhattan. Sarah also offers video sessions to clients who are unable to attend in person sessions. At Feeling Good Psychotherapy, there are office staff to help you sort through confusing insurance benefits and get you started with our intake packet.


Message to clients

Whether it is your first time seeking therapy or not, you’ve shown a great amount of dedication to yourself just by deciding it is time for a change and taking action. Placing an emphasis on empathy, I work towards building a therapeutic relationship by developing trust from the beginning. After clients feel supported and understood, CBT allows us to work collaboratively on the goals you’ve identified for yourself at a pace that feels comfortable for you. We will work to identify and challenge your unhealthy or hurtful thoughts with methods that you will be able to easily implement into your daily life. I am a caring and genuine person who prioritizes every client leaving a session feeling valued and supported. I enjoy working with adult individuals from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds as well clients in the LGBTQIA community. 

Areas of experience include Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,  multiple types of Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Panic Disorder, Communication issues, Relationship concerns, Gender Dysphoria, and procrastination.

Before your initial appointment, I enjoy taking time to have a brief phone consultation in order to learn more about yourself and what is bringing you into therapy.  Finding the "right fit" is essential to your therapeutic process. I will take time to answer any questions you might have as well as discuss my approach in order to assist you in making the right decision for yourself.
