About me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working as therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, with a special focus in adoption and foster care issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I consider the client/therapist relationship to be the most important thing in counseling. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines trauma-focused, solution focused and motivational interviewing counseling styles. . I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan 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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sara DeRoo. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I am so grateful I found Sara. She has helped me work through 2 decades of emotional abuse from my in laws, parenting issues, marriage problems and childhood trauma responses. I look forward to talking with her and always feel so refreshed, empowered and encouraged after our sessions.
