About me

"There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn't"

Hello! I am glad you are here and I look forward to working with you.

I am a licensed mental health and addiction therapist in with over 10 years of experience in the field. I graduated from Creighton University in 2008 with a Master's degree in Community Counseling. I have worked with all ages in clinic setting and private practice on various issues including substance abuse, anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship issues, grief, parenting struggles, stress management, and poor impulse control. In addition, I am also trained as a certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

My therapeutic style is based on being genuine and understanding with clients. I believe it is essential to actively listen and effectively problem solve with my clients. My therapeutic foundation is a mix of cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and rational-emotive theories. There are so many benefits from seeking out therapy. It can be the beginning of a powerful change for a person's life. I enjoy helping people reach their goals or resolve what is bothering them. I encourage you to start today to change your life for the better by allowing me to help your through your journey.

When I am not working, I stay busy with my family. I have two little guys, so I am always on the go with these two. I also love running, traveling, reading, learning new things, and being outdoors.

I am here to help you get unstuck and live your best life!

Sara Irwin is the best therapist I’ve ever had and I’ve honestly had a lot. I always come back to her when I need advice or guidance or just to vent. I’ve been seeing her for years and strongly recommend her warm, welcoming, patient vibe. She offers great resources and recommendations as well, and is always knowledgeable and understanding about whatever I throw at her feet.

Sara is very caring, and excellent at driving you through difficult thoughts and feelings. She genuinely cares about your situation, and about helping you be a better self.

Sara has been great to talk to and feel listened to. She's also very consistent in checking in between sessions. Highly recommend her!

Sara is a beautiful listener. She is not pushy to me and that really helps my personal style of therapy. Though, she is persistent in giving me perspective and challenging questions and thats important. She is comforting and makes a great cheerleader. Im thankful for her.

If your making the hard decision to begin your therapy journey or your coming back to therapy I would highly recommend Sara. Sara takes her time to get to know you and offers different therapy methods based on your needs. She will modify as needed, she is flexible and she encourages you to just be who you are. She will help you with big or small things and your voice will always matter!

Having Sara there at the end of a video link gives me a great deal of comfort. Whether I have something which concerns me or I simply want to talk to someone Sara is always there to help and because she remembers the details around my situation she immediately has context which hlps with her response. Sara is as good as they come.
