As we go through life we face challenges, from these challenges we may experience pain and suffering. As this pain becomes stored within us it creates burdens that may sometimes be too heavy to bear. As I work with clients, to explore and resolve pain and trauma, I work to help them explore what is at the root. We learn to navigate the pain and trauma with self-compassion, and foster skills that help us engage in healthier ways with ourselves and others. Through self-reflection, processing emotions, and learning to respond rather than react the burden of pain is often reduced.
I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in Utah & Indiana, with over 7 years of experience in providing mental health and behavioral interventions, in a variety of populations including children, families, and women. I have worked with clients with a wide range of experiences and mental health concerns some of which include depression, anxiety, relationships issues, parenting issues, behavior concerns, ADHD, trauma, complex PTSD, and compulsory disorders.
My approach to therapy includes a client based approach through the use of validation, TF-CBT, CBT & ACT, somatic exercises, awareness, and motivational interviewing. I am a compassionate professional and my approach is mindfulness based and solution focused. I believe each client holds within them everything they need to resolve challenges, you are the expert on you and this is your journey. I provide a nonjudgmental space within which individuals and families can explore their options and approach individual issues. I am available M-Th 7am- 2pm EST. I encourage email communication regarding the therapy process, your questions, and any concerns.

I have been seeing Sarah for the past year, and unfortunately have moved states and need to change therapists. Sarah has been so helpful to me this past year, I have been having a lot of health issues and she has been amazing at adapting to my ever changing schedule and needs. She is an amazing person, and I will miss talking to her. I would absolutely recommend Sarah to anyone in Utah, she made me feel listened to and validated and I always looked forward to her sessions.
