About Me

Hi there! Welcome to my page. I'll keep it short, because you probably have enough on your plate already.
I am here to help you in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental way using the skills I've picked up through school, work, and just trying to navigate life! It can be overwhelming, but you do not have to do it alone. Bring your worries to the table and we will come up with a plan that fits your goals, needs, and lifestyle. You've already taken a big step by coming this far.

I believe that we are complex beings and are not defined by a diagnosis, our past, or the challenges we face. I believe in building a foundation of trust and safety, and letting you set the pace while helping you get out of your own way. It is a delicate balance, and I understand how hard it can be. I would be happy to talk with you further to see if I may be a good fit for you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sarah Burns. 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.

Written by A.M. on Oct 23, 2021 after therapy with Sarah for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

There are no gimmicks or quick fixes when it comes to Sarah, this is an individual who is as compassionate as she is realistic and down to earth. You feel as though the vulnerability and candor between her and yourself is comparable to being around a good friend, but she is entirely professional and has a very clear goal in helping you work through whatever it is you need to. It's a judgment free, safe, and practical environment that feels so much less daunting with Sarah guiding you through the trenches of healing. The thing I admire most about her is that she is a true champion for your well being, and truly validates every fear, concern, and anxiety you voice.

Written by B.U. on Oct 11, 2021 after therapy with Sarah for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and adhd

Sarah is a counselor who can provide unique insight and offer outside the box solutions, is empathetic, and has a good sense of humor when appropriate, all of which is refreshing. She’s a great person to talk to, and can quickly make anyone feel comfortable. If you’ve been in traditional therapy before, and haven’t felt able to open up in a more clinical environment—and you’re tired of the unmoving “therapist face” and incomplete feedback—Sarah is just as experienced, and twice as compassionate/engaged. She’s skilled at balancing the personal and professional, so that a connection and an appropriate therapist-client relationship can coexist. 10/10
