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.
