As a licensed counselor, I am committed to providing quality counseling services to Tennessee residents. I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling in 2012 and have been licensed in Tennessee since 2015. I have worked in mental health since 2008. From 2012-2016 I had the pleasure of working through a church in a Christian environment providing guidance and support through a Christ-centered, holistic approach. However, I only provide Christian faith based counseling when asked to do so. I accept people from all walks of life and believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect. Since 2015 I have operated within a private practice setting offering counseling to a large variety of clients from all walks of life.
I am comfortable working with individuals, couples, (premarital and married), families, children and teens. I specialize in relationship dynamics, communication and conflict resolution, anxiety and depression, fitness and wellness, nutrition, and spiritual issues.
I am licensed by the state, certified nationally, and also have certifications in fitness and nutrition. I believe this brings a wealth of knowledge as each individual's wellness is holistic and all areas of our lives affect each other in some way. I approach counseling from a variety of frameworks. Primarily I incorporate person-centered therapy while also using the family systems approach, cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, narrative therapy and mindfulness.

I’ve only had one face to face appt with Sara, however so far I’m impressed with her availability, expertise, and personality. She’s helpful, listens, responds in kind, asks great questions. I’ve enjoyed my time with her and feel like we’re on the right path. Thanks!
Sara gives amazing advice. She exudes competence. Possibly my favorite aspect of working with Sara is that she provides real, day-to-day coping strategies to deal with stress and anxiety. This has been very helpful and I look forward to staying in touch.
Sara’s messages are dripping with wisdom. I have picked up several of her sayings and feel like she is gently leading me in a new direction. She listens intently, and I feel like she is a friend I can trust!
We are just starting to really get into some good issues but so far, Sara has been extremely helpful in understanding and explaining my concerns with general life stuff! She is timely, gives good suggestions and offers great insight. Excited to see where this takes me!
She has helped me to look at things in a different way. With just a few suggestions I have already felt supported and like I’m moving ahead. She has been great.
Sara is truly amazing. I’ve been able to have a much better outlook on life because of her help and bridge gaps in relationships by following her advise.
Sara has made me feel comfortable. It's never fun to put your past out there, but she made it feel like a safe place and is helping me work through my past for a better future.
She is a great counselor and really tries to relate. She’s an actual person behind the keyboard!
