About me

Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I am so excited that you’re taking this step to reach out for help.

 I’m passionate about creating a safe space where people are free to be open and genuine without fear of judgement. Everyone faces trials and difficulties in life and it is my honor to be able to walk alongside someone and offer support.

 In the past there has been a stigma on people who seek out mental health treatment and my hope is that one day, that stigma will disappear completely. Caring for your own mental health and well being is a vital component to overall healthy living. Getting help when you need it is absolutely the best thing you can do for yourself and the other people in your life.

My approach is somewhat laid back – no two people are the same so each time I work with someone I want to tailor my style and feedback to best meet their needs. I want to make sure you feel safe enough to be authentic in communicating your needs with me. We will work together to help you meet your goals and get you where you want to be! I’m looking forward to meeting you and learning about what makes you who you are and how I can support you in your journey toward wellness. Let’s get started!

Written on Nov 08, 2022 after therapy with Sabrina for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Sabrina has been a complete gift to me, helping so VERY much in healing after a particularly stressful trauma in 2018/2019. She has helped me learn more about myself, my triggers, my poor AND helpful coping strategies, and develop MORE healthy strategies. Sabrina has beautiful professional boundaries, and is so supportive of and happy for me when I make good choices, honor myself, and see evidence of change and growth. I'd recommend Sabrina to ANYONE!

It changed my life to have Sabrina help me through all of my struggles last year. This year, I look forward to another successful year with her as my therapist. Extremely professional and compassionate.

I have been working with Sabrina on and off for a while. I've been going to therapy on and off my whole life and Sabrina is certainly in the top of the therapists I have worked with. She is knowledgeable, kind and understanding. She makes herself extremely available to her clients, even now with a new baby! She remembers what you tell her and takes notes on important things. She gives very useful and relevant advice. I really cannot express enough how lovely she is, I would recommend her to anyone.

She’s done so much for me. My story and my experiences are meticulously layered. She makes me see the most simple things. Her perspective is unlike any other. She stumps me a lot. lol

Written on Sep 01, 2021 after therapy with Sabrina for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

Sabrina has been the absolute best! She helped me get through a really rough time, I dont know where I would be if she weren't there over the last 10 months. She is easy to talk to, responsive, and gave me everything that I needed.

Written on Aug 18, 2021 after therapy with Sabrina for 6 months

Always love talking to Sabrina! I have only had awkward, too-professional/unapproachable therapists before her and have never felt comfortable enough to talk openly with one. Sabrina is insightful and kind, but she’s also super chill and a little silly! Love her personality and the voice memos I get always make me happy because she just has a good vibe. She’s helped me understand so much and I’ve figured out many answers to questions I’ve always wondered. I’ve gotten to a point on my life where I feel like I’m actually in a good place, and while I did the work, Sabrina helped me plant the seeds, and I am so grateful.

Written on Jun 27, 2021 after therapy with Sabrina for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Sabrina has been an incredible support for me during a very tough time. She is flexible with her therapy style depending on my needs. We have been able to work on techniques to help decrease anxiety, set boundaries, identify coping skills but she also sometimes just lets me vent and validates me. She provides a healthy balance between support and eduction to help me grow. She helps challenge some of my thought processes and identify the cycles that need to be broken. She has made the environment comfortable enough for me to let down my guard. I appreciate having a safe place to say what I need to say without judgment. I’d highly recommend her.

Written on Jan 04, 2021 after therapy with Sabrina for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coaching

Sabrina is an outstanding counselor. I have a myriad of reasons to start therapy and she’s been there throughout my ups and lows. She’s kind, compassionate, professional, thoughtful, and funny. As a person with a history of eating disorders, I can say that Sabrina is very helpful in providing help on this topic.

I feel supported, heard, validated, and encouraged to continue my healing process. I couldn’t be happier with her!

Written on Dec 04, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and adhd

Sabrina is amazing! I love knowing that she's there, when life feels crazy, I can reach out to her and it's like she just knows what to say. On the tough days, on the crazy days, on the side days, and even when I'm doing good she's that voiced that instantly makes me feel calmer when I listen to her messages just because I know that she gets me she understands me and she's so helpful with her in sight and her suggestions.

Written on Nov 12, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, anger management, and coping with life changes

I have never had a therapist before. Sabrina is so easy to talk to. I have had no problem trusting her and opening up to her. I really appreciate that she is a normal human and has human reactions to things. Her responses and questions help me feel grounded as I sort through things. Some people love to tell you how to feel or summarize your experience for you or shove platitudes down your throat. Not Sabrina. She's attentive and insightful without being preachy. Highly recommend.

I am so glad I switched therapists and got Sabrina

Written on Sep 18, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 5 months

In the whole scheme of things I'm pretty lucky, so I hesitated reaching out to talk to someone. Talking with Sabrina is like talking with a friend--a really wise friend that helps me see new perspectives and gently calls me on things I may need to reconsider. Sometimes I mostly talk; sometimes I mostly listen. I feel heard, supported and encouraged after every session.

Written on Aug 10, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and coping with life changes

Sabrina is a great listener when I am having problems, but she also gives me new ways to think about my problems so they don't seem so overwhelming. She always praises my passion for things that are important to me. She is willing to find resources that are helpful for me, but she doesn't overwhelm me with worksheets or links if I just need an unbiased opinion on something. Working with Sabrina has been a very balanced experience and has definitely helped me work towards balance in my life and my self-perception.

Written on Aug 06, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

I love her, can't express how responsive she is, I have been so relentless to counseling before because I felt that it was bullshit but she really brought me back to reality.

Written on Jul 29, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

She’s great. I’ve gone through many different councilors over the last twenty or so years and I’ve never felt this comfortable opening up to someone. I’d recommend her to anyone who struggles with being open. Good luck to everyone!

Written on Mar 28, 2020 after therapy with Sabrina for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I just signed up a month ago for betterhelp. I was skeptical at first and wondered if this would be legit. With my schedule it was too much to try to make an appointment in office. The day I signed up I was paired with Sabrina Fitzpatrick and the very next day we had our first session. She has been amazing since that day. Every week she has given me advice on how to overcome some struggles I’m dealing with.

Written on Nov 13, 2019 after therapy with Sabrina for 2 months on issues concerning parenting issues

Sabrina has been a true God send for me. My previous counselor was too far away and I ended up canceling appointments often. Sabrina is very timely with responses and I LOVE her voice messages. She's kind and thoughtful and brings up points of view that I wouldn't have thought of. Grateful for her!

Written on Nov 06, 2019 after therapy with Sabrina for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Sabrina is very supportive of me, and I found the right person to talk to who can give me an unbiased and independent opinion on what is going on in my mind and in my heart as I am in a stage where I cannot always figure it out myself. I am really happy to have her.

Written on Oct 29, 2019 after therapy with Sabrina for 5 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

I have had no previous experience with online counseling so my expectations were quite neutral to begin with and my general experiences with psychologists and psychiatrists have been less than positive in the past. Keeping this in mind, I am fairly satisfied with Sabrina and her methods as well as the service on this platform. Sabrina has guided me through a rough patch this year and she has for the most part been helpful and understanding and I am looking forward to continue to work with her and would definitely recommend her.

Sabrina is so helpful! She always listens and is able to offer advice and support. I mainly enjoy talking to her to work through things I don’t feel comfortable talking about necessarily with known people in my life. I highly recommend chatting with her if you need that little extra push or support to chase your dreams and feel confident. I also really enjoy the weekly inspiration as it gets me motivated and ready for the week ahead!

Sabrina has been there to help me through a really tough time in my life. She's kind, and available (much more available than had I done counseling sessions somewhere around here with someone in person). She talks to me multiple days a week, as opposed to a one day a week meeting- and she's available a variety of different ways. She's encouraging, and has been influential in helping me grieve appropriately and work through trauma I have experienced in life.
