Sarah’s specific clinical strengths reside in identity exploration and self-esteem work; relationship dissatisfaction or conflict with others; depression, frustration, or unhappiness with current life circumstances; and grief and loss. She has training experience and is committed to the mental health of undergraduate students, graduate students, early career professionals, and medical professionals and has a strong interest in engaging in relationship counseling with partnerships of all constellations.

In session, she works with clients to unpack, make sense of, and create new insight to bring them closer to relationship satisfaction, feeling content in their day-to-day life, and a sense of self-understanding. She supports clients in connecting with their emotions; challenging their thought patterns, behaviors, ways of relating, and areas of their life they wish to adapt; and better understanding patterns that do not serve them anymore with the goal of being more connected, fulfilled, and emotionally satisfied.
