I am a licensed professional clinical counselor who graduated with a Master's Degree from John Carroll University. Since graduating, I have worked with a wide variety of populations in many settings including college level counseling, elder population, in a school setting, the emergency department, with those who are grieving, and at an outpatient office. I have experience working with individuals, families, couples, and groups. I enjoy working most with those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life adjustments and transitions, grief, and relationship difficulties. In addition, I have received training through the Chopra Center in California in meditation, have received attunement in Reiki II, and Mind Body Spirit Practitioner Certification with Sunny Dawn Johnston which helps me to incorporate alternative healing methods into therapeutic sessions.
Since my time working with individuals, I have come to find that the most important aspect of counseling is "walking alongside" and "being with" the person. I can definitely help give you direction and the tools needed to make changes in your life, however, I feel a big part of my job is to be a support, advocate, and guide as you make the step into creating changes in your own life. As you step into change then your circumstances, relationships, and symptoms will begin to shift in a positive direction as well. As human beings, we have everything inside of us to live healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives. Sometimes it takes "cleaning out" the old debris, the past conditioning, increased knowledge and understanding of our symptoms, and looking at the negative thoughts and emotions that have clouded our true self.
Please message me if you are ready to take the first step into change! It's very exciting!

I continue to be happy with the help Sarah is providing me in being the person I want to truly become.
Sarah has been very responsive and willing to work on anything I bring up, even though I bring up a lot of different things from week to week. She never trivialized my concerns. She also offers very practical advice to help me improve my day-to-day life, while validating my feelings about past and deeper underlying issues. I am hopeful that continuing work with her will help me reach my goals of lowering anxiety and increase my sense of fulfillment every day.
Sarah is a very knowledgeable, experienced, caring therapist. She has helped me deal with depression, anxiety, and she has helped me process prior trauma. She is wonderful and encourages you to go at your own pace. She is very easy to open up to as well. She also is very thorough and thoughtful in her responses. I am very grateful to her for her help!
Sarah's been working with me for only a couple weeks and it's been so easy to open up to her. She listens to you closely and is really helping me through. Thank you.
Sarah has been a good counselor the past month and I would recommend her to someone suffering with depression.
I've been meeting with Sarah for about three weeks now and she has done an excellent job helping me understand and cope with my emotions!!!!! It has been a great experience and I look forward to more sessions and ongoing self improvement on my part!!!!
Very thoughtful responses and realistic and approachable advice. I never had to wait more than a day for a response, unless she had let me know ahead of time she was unavailable. She is a great counselor to just chat with and find help with everyday problems.
Sarah has been wonderful! She's positive, genuine, and results-oriented!
Sarah is absolutely excellent! She listens and is great at reassuring. She has different techniques and methods for helping you work through problems that I really appreciate!
Sarah has been very supportive and answers me very quickly. I appreciate the way she seems to understand me and help me have a safe place to share my feelings.
Sarah is very kind a helpful. She cares a great deal. She takes a more holistic approach to therapy then some might. If you need someone to chat with about everyday problems, she's a great choice.
