About me

I studied and received a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in behavioral sciences in 2009. I have been in private practice for 8 years and have work with a variety of presenting issues, such as depression, anxiety and behavior related problems. I primarily focus on cognitive behavioral therapy but am open to different approaches as the need arises. I grew up in a nontraditional household and learned very early on the benefits of a therapeutic relationship and have chosen to dedicate my life helping others.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sara Veldhuizen . 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 actually listens and keeps everything really lowkey. A session with her isn’t something to stress about. It’s a conversation, and a relaxed one at that. She’s honest and gives you feedback and really has helped me just vent and understand what’s going through my head at times and why.
She’s good people, she tries and doesn’t add pressure. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

The first therapist that helped me unpack my trauma I've been holding onto for years. I'm very grateful for having her in my life. I feel like I'm talking to a good supportive friend who cares and she's helping me get to my goals. Thank you Sara

I really enjoy my time with Sara. She's very good at easing me into uncomfortable conversations and I feel absolutely no judgment from her when I do talk about things. Talking about myself and things that have happened to me to form me into the person I am currently is not something I like to do but Sara puts me at ease. She offers me very helpful advice that I try to incorporate into my interactions with others.

The TLDR version, she listens to me and I feel better about life after we talk.

Sarah has been very respectful and helpful so far in helping me work through personal issues, makes conversation easy which I feel allows me to be transparent without doubts
