I began my adult career by studying the natural world, and working in natural resources management for over a decade. Later, I decided to go back to school to study psychology. There are several ways in which my natural resources experiences have influenced my counseling style.
I am trauma-informed, have experience working with clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance addiction, familial crises, and mood disorders.
My approach is client-centered and my therapeutic modalities of choice include Choice Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy. I use Motivational Interviewing and Short-term Solution Focused therapy to help clients learn coping skills they can use to enhance the quality of their lives.

I have been working with Sara only recently and can already feel the positive changes coming on. She is a great listener with an empathetic but grounded in evidence-based theory approach which have helped me tremendously. I cannot recommend Sara highly enough; she is a lifesaver for me.
