About me

Hi! My name is Sarah and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience in various in-patient and out-patient settings. The past 8 years I have worked in the healthcare field, primarily assisting individuals and families as they adjust to new and/or chronic illnesses. Our physical and emotional health are deeply connected and I strongly believe in taking care of one's whole self (i.e. biological, psychological, social and spiritual needs). I am also a mother to 2 elementary school aged children and recognize the importance of balance and self-care. I enjoy running and being active, drinking coffee, and connecting with friends to decompress.

I look forward to hearing from you and working as a team to identify ways to help you feel better and adjust to the life stressors that can impact overall happiness.

Sarah is an amazing counselor. She’s attentive and supportive. When I struggle to find the correct words to describe what I am feeling, she’s able to help me figure it out. She genuinely cares and has great insight.

Sarah is very helpful, but at the same time very gentle in her guidance. She makes sure you feel heard, understood, and validated, while still directing you towards a more healthy way of thinking and challenging your negative thoughts.
She has an arsenal of coping mechanisms to help you and is very open to hearing what does/doesn’t work for you.
Would absolutely recommend her, especially to those that are a bit more sensitive to criticism or direction. She walks that balance really nicely.
