About Me

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming. Maybe something has happened recently, maybe it happened a while ago, or maybe you’re not even sure why you feel the way you do. You might have trouble doing things that used to bring you joy, you might have racing thoughts and out of control worry, or you might just be struggling with a particular situation or relationship. Often, individuals seeking therapy will say that they just need to have a safe, nonjudgmental space where they can talk things out.

That’s where my work with you comes in. We will work together to put an understanding to what those emotions are, what triggers them, and how to manage them. I specialize particularly in working with LGBTQ+ individuals and young adults, but work with all ages and sexualities. I also work with concerns related to anxiety, depression, relationship (including family, friend, and romantic) issues, grief, self-esteem, and life changes. I have four year of experience and have found that while all individuals have different needs, my primary therapeutic approach generally combines cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic therapy, solution focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. My therapeutic style is easygoing and conversational; I tend to "go with the flow" with whichever needs you present and believe firmly in meeting clients where they're at.

Deciding to reach out to a therapist is a big step and I commend you on getting this far! I look forward to helping you along your journey of self discovery, however far along that journey you may be.

Written by B.R. on Apr 27, 2021 after counseling with Sarah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Sarah has been a breath of fresh air. She has a friendly, relaxed and approachable demeanor which is clearly supported with a wealth of knowledge. What is lovely is the way she weaves techniques into conversation to put you at ease. I feel like she goes the extra mile and genuinely cares, and I'm confident she can help me get back on track and feeling like me again.

Sarah's counseling for that past 2 months has really helped me deal with circumstances i wasn't used to. She helped me gain more confidence and gave me great tips on how to find happiness in what i have. Glad i took some help and got better.
