I am a licensed professional counselor with 26 years of professional work experience helping clients become the best version of themselves without judgement! I am honored to assist clients on their personal transformation journeys. Together, we work to break through the barriers of fears, doubts, and frustrating patterns that have been holding them back, empowering them to create the life they truly desire.
Personal transformation is a profound process that involves self-reflection, growth, and the courage to make positive changes. As a counselor, I provide a supportive and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their limiting beliefs, identify patterns that no longer serve them, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles. Areas may include; overcoming anxiety, fears, forgiveness, letting go of or repairing relationships, conflict resolutions, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & career difficulties. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps to change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
Additional areas of focus: Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Body Image, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Chronic Pain Illness and Disability, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Impulsivity, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Self-Love, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues

As someone who struggles with a negative self-perception, I finally believe that I can become my own friend. Thanks to Sara and her expertise, I now feel equipped to challenge my negative thoughts! This process is difficult, but Sara is a great, nonjudgmental person to be vulnerable with. It’s been a privilege to have her as my therapist!
