About Me

Sometimes, holding a mirror up can reflect back strengths we don't realize we possess, especially in difficult times and circumstances. I have spent the past couple of years working with an Assertive Community Treatment Team and I have seen people overcome a variety of challenging situations, recognizing their own strengths, and giving back to others and their communities. This is what inspires my practice.

I draw from a variety of theories, because I know that there is no one size fits all approach. I often utilize Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Theory and Self-Compassion models. It is important to be aware of a variety of tools, paths and resources available to you on your journey towards wellness. This is why I also value your feedback as we work together,

I am here to collaborate with you and together we will work to improve your life. We may explore lifestyle patterns and how they impact our mental health and well being. You will learn new skills and explore thought patterns that often block us from recognizing our own strengths and potential. I will ask you to participate. We will find what works for you. I also enjoy sharing the brain science behind practices, so you can understand why these tool are so effective. My goal is for you to become so competent in using skills learned that you are able to not only improve your life, but the lives of those around you!

I’ve only been speaking to Sairah a short while and I already feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Sairah just knows exactly how to word things to make you realize there are positives for what you are going through. 10/10 would recommend Sairah to anyone who is struggling!

Sairah is a good professional, but above all a really good life advisor. I love how she gives the support when needed as well as all the more professional tools and material, and more technical explanations about how our brain works and how we can change our perspective and train to make it work to be happier people. I would repeat this journey with her with no doubts.

After 2 sessions I see an improvement in my mental state. I feel that Sairah has excellent compassion, very good diagnostic skills, and a range of simple but effective therapy tools. A good match. Makes me feel relaxed.

I feel extremely fortunate to have been matched with Sairah. She had actionable suggestions right away and I’ve found our sessions to be very helpful. I’m very impressed by her ability to connect, and she has such a warm approach.

Sairah has changed my life. I wish I could meet her in person. I can't believe how deep she can get me to feel and how safe she can make the process. She is the person I reach out to, sometimes many times per day, when I need to be reminded that i am moving forward and I am fighting. She sits on the phone with me while I breathe, while I cry, while I journal, and I literally feel her holding me through the process as if she's In the room with me. She understands me on a level that no one has yet and she really believes that I can push through and discover who I am. She is really a gift and I am so blessed that our paths have crossed. I don't know what I would do without her.
Thank you!
