About me

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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Sara Lewis-Stankus. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Sara's ability to find how concepts click with me is her secret sauce. Sports is my passion and she has synced the learnings of CBT to various sports I play which helps key points land easier.

Sara also embraces my ideas (3Cs and 3Ps!!) and helps shape them into core aspects we've been working on, e.g., visualization, self affirmations, awareness of auto thoughts, etc.

Thank you Sara, I'm so grateful for everything you do.

Dr. Stankus has been an absolute blessing in my life! She takes time to listen and guide me through life to be honest. I trust her completely and every time my mind wonders off, I always think about her advice.

I have been speaking to Sara for around 4 months now on a weekly basis. This has been incredibly helpful and insightful and I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring and respectful therapist.
