About Me

Are you feeling down most of the time? Do you constantly worry about your future? Do you have problems relating to others? If some of these questions speak to you, you may want to talk to a trained therapist, who can help you to sort out the things in your life and help you to regain the lost time you spent alone. Some of the feelings you may have are quite normal. However, it becomes a problem when such emotions and feelings impede the daily functioning of your life, such as inability to work, difficulties with family relationships and friendships.
I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in treating anxiety, mood disorders and depression. I also received extensive training in treating clients who have a history of trauma or abuse. I have more than ten years of experience working for the public mental health system as well as working in private practice and have received extensive training and practice in cognitive behavioral treatment.

My therapeutic approach is empathic and sensitive, yet goal oriented, in which I want to help my clients to achieve the goals they have determined. I believe in working from a strengths-based perspective and looking at the system of the family. I am an eclectic therapist, meaning that I use several therapeutic techniques, but I also specialize in systems therapy, Bowenian family therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

I try to meet your needs and tailor treatment services around your personal situation. I am committed to provide culturally competent services and speak Korean and Turkish.

Written by A.L. on Dec 08, 2017 after counseling with Sarah for 2 months stress, anxiety

Sarah has helped me more in a couple of months than other counselors has in an entire year. She is so supportive and sweet and I am so glad I found her!

Written by A.S. on Sep 19, 2017 after counseling with Sarah for 5 days depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and self esteem

Sarah Kim has been giving me excellent advice, and has opened my mind to what's important and what I need to do for my well-being. I really appreciate the fact that she was patient and empathic. I would recommend her to anyone.
