Written by B.L. on May 16, 2022 after therapy with Sarah for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

Sarah is amazing. We worked together for roughly 7 months and I felt confident to leave therapy ( my finances didn't allow me to keep doing therapy forever). After I left therapy with my "tool box" of things to do when I was stressed or upset in anyway I had major health issues happen a month or 2 later. Things my tool box didn't prepare me for. So I reached out to Sarah when I was in crisis, she helped me get out of my crisis mode quickly and back on track. Now I continue to see her on a once a month basis to check in. Financially I can swing it, and it gives me so much peace of mind knowing that I have that "check in". Cannot recommend her enough for anyone who struggles with trauma, substance abuse, being a mom of any kind. She hears what I don't say, and asks the questions that I didn't dare ask myself. The amount of growth I have made would not have been possible without Sarah's guidance.

Sarah is very high energy and listens to what I have to say. She knows how to keep things light, while also validating my emotions and worries. She sets clear, concise, reachable goals, while also benchmarking different ways to achieve them.

Written by J.A. on Aug 12, 2021 after therapy with Sarah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I love that Sarah challenges me. She’s the first counselor who has the guts to point out the areas where I need more refinement. At the same time she celebrates successes and small victories to keep me motivated. I like being challenged and Sarah gives me tools to make more thoughtful decisions. I highly recommend!

Work with me!
