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!

I never really thought I needed therapy, I am really good at working on myself. However I had some ongoing issues for decades with my inlaws that I could not find peace with and decided a safe non-biased space might help me. I also didn't prioritize therapy bc I thought it might take a long time to find someone I connect with. However I could not imagine someone better than Sara. The flexibility of online fits my busy CEO lifestyle (and 4 kids) and I look forward to my time weekly with Sara and love having a chat room to touch base during the week as I needed to. I am so grateful to her for supporting my ongoing quest to become my best self.
She does a wonderful job of listening while being able to connect and encourage you at the same time I really enjoy talking to her and like how she checks on me through the week.
She is so kind and helpful. She takes time to get to know you as a person while she tries to help you out. I get anxious about talking on the phone and video chatting people I don’t know well, so she let our first session take place over live chat messages instead. She’s very understanding.
