About Me

Hello! My name is Sara. I am a clinical social worker (LCSW) based in New York City. I have 5+ years of experience working with high school students struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, etc. I also have experience working with people of all ages through Telehealth and I love constantly finding new ways to engage in a virtual safe space. I offer a healing centered approach that is affirming, strengths based, and Trauma informed. The methods that guide my practice focus on strengthening the wellbeing within an individuals mind, body, and spirit. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I seek to create a nonjudgemental, compassionate, and safe place where every person feels able to be their whole self and share their story.

Best form of Therapy. Sara knows all of my needs and makes me feel so empowered and confident in my day to day life. Everything has been so much better ever since starting around a year ago!

Routinely meeting with Sara via virtual sessions for close to a year, was one of greatest decisions for my mental health and for gathering tools for seeking to find a stronger, healthier relationship with myself and existing relationships. Thank you for your effort and consistency Sara!!
