About Me

Hello! My name is Sara and I have over 10 years of clinical experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor in St. Louis, Missouri. I have extensive therapeutic experience and knowledge working with families, teenager, and children. I have been able to provide services in a variety of settings including residential treatment, in home settings, and school based settings, which has allowed me to possess an abundance of skills. I am a rostered Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and am a Nationally Certified Clinician. I have experience with family conflict, parenting problems, relationship issues, school problems, trauma, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, self esteem, and anger management.

I have my Masters of Arts in Counseling from Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, Missouri. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri.

My counseling style is warm and inviting, with a focus on the client at all times. You are the one seeking support and the one determining the goals you'd like to work towards. You are the expert on yourself and I am here to help facilitate change. My therapeutic approach combines a Client Centered approach with Cognitive Behavioral therapy techniques to help you reach your goals.

You've started the first step in creating a better you and I look forward to working together!

Even though we have only had a few video chats Sara understands me and knows what my goals are. I appreciate her being so understanding of my situation. She has offered me tips to help with my anxiety and trauma. I look forward to continue working with her!
