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.

Sara has been very helpful in helping me identify triggers and where/when I need to set boundaries. She offers constructive advice when I need to have a difficult conversation with a loved one, thinking of how they may react and how I need to be cognizant of their thoughts/feelings.

Sara is such a warm, genuine person. Our sessions are always the highlight of my day! I have never looked forward to a therapy session like I do with Sara! The compassion, the empathy and the general vibe with her is so organic. I have already gained so much from our sessions - she has evened out the little unfinished edges and given me the tools to succeed on my own! I could go on and on about all the great things with Sara - her humor is a total plus! The fact that I can also spend my sessions laughing? I mean, she is a complete gem and I am so thankful for her advice and help!

Some people won’t appreciate how helpful she can be with the really hard stuff. Those of us who need deep healing need Sarah.

Sara has been instrumental in my recovery in dealing with childhood trauma. She has years of experience and very knowledgeable. I made tremendous improvement with Sara as my therapist and highly recommend Sara! Sara is kind, understanding, patient, funny and uplifting. I couldn't have asked for a better therapist!

After just one session, Sara made me feel comfortable enough to speak my mind and open up, which is something I have struggled with for years. Since speaking with her, I have felt more myself and have seen direct translation of our work in my life. I look forward to my calls with her every week. I can only recommend her!
