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!

Best therapist ever, sorry I am bad at pointing out specifics, but I have had several and she is the best I have experienced.

Sarah is the GOAT. I’d pay 1000 a session if I could. She’s doing gods work. Just match with her if you can, trust me.

Sara, continues to find ways to help you through your journey and she will meet you where you're at. She isn't pushy, she lets you work at your pace, she encourages you and will assist you along the way. If you're thinking of taking a step towards healing she will work right along side you to help you meet your goals.

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.
