About Me

HI, I am Sara, I am a licensed counselor and life coach in Arizona with over 5 years of experience. My counseling style is focuses on healing the mind and body as a whole. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, lack of self-worth and awareness. I currently work with individual adults seeking better awareness of self, building a life with meaning, and within the LGBTQ community.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My clinical approach combines cognitive-behavioral techniques, Solution focused approaches, and nutritional understanding within mental health to get to the heart of what is concerning my clients. I will tailor our dialog and treatment to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Sara is a very down to earth, kind and friendly therapist. I found it easy to connect and trust her right away and also thought her takeaways from what I was sharing were enlightening. She's very clear on her schedule but goes above and beyond to make herself available. For the first time, I find myself coming out of a session, eager for the next due to the ease of conversation and takeaways that come from it

Sara has remained consistent while I have not. It’s been so nice to be checked on even just through the messaging and has helped so much. Her approach is always with kindness but helps keep me somewhat on track. I would recommend her to anyone!
