About me

I completed my Masters of Social Work at Wayne State University. I am a fully licensed clinical social worker. I have been working with individuals, couples and families since 2018. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but have experience with other therapy styles as well. I have worked with people who experience MDD, GAD, BPD, ADHD, PTSD, DMDD and symptoms that may not meet full diagnostic criteria but are still looking for therapy.

I aim to provide client-led, strengths-based services. I want you to feel welcomed, comfortable and in charge of your mental health. I can provide structured sessions with home-work to complete between sessions or more relaxed and flexible appointments that do not follow a set agenda. Your health and safety is my number one concern.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Dr. Sara has been so wonderful in helping me with my anxiety issues. She provides an amazing outlet for me and helps gives me a different perspective on situations that I need help getting through, past and present!

I feel so incredibly lucky that I found Sara. Years of therapy and she is by far the best at meeting me where I’m at and working with me at a pace that is manageable to meet my goals. I look forward to our sessions every week because I always walk away feeling empowered to confront my issues with confidence.

Sara is insightful and supportive. She has a perfect balance of holding me accountable and giving me space to figure things out myself. She’s also pretty funny.
