My name is Sarah L. Jennings, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, living in Saint Louis, MO. I have 17 years of counseling experience, (this is a second career for me) working first in domestic violence shelters with battered women, then in federally mandated counseling with ex-offenders. I have extensive experience working with grief, especially complicated grief, and with PTSD. I am lesbian, married to a woman, and have counseled many LGBTQ clients. My approach to therapy is eclectic, tailoring the types of psychotherapy to the individual. I have used CBT, Existential, Feminist, Rogerian (client-centered), Solution-focused Brief Therapy, Internal Family Systems therapy, and sometimes borrow from transactional analysis. I believe it is important to join with my clients on their journey toward self-actualization. I enjoy working with the aging population, and the life stages and challenges of the LGBTQ population. I also am interested in working with people of all walks of life who are on a spiritual quest, and am open and interested in all spiritual journeys. I am always interested in talking with atheists and agnostics.

Sarah is a patient and kind person. She really understands me and allows me to open up in ways I am unable to elsewhere. I feel at ease with Sarah and appreciate all she has helped me with over the past few years.

Sarah has been an incredible help and support ever since I joined BetterHelp. Her kind nature and genuine concern always comes through. She has a soft, friendly, solution-based approach that immediately put me at ease, and allowed me to open up and share with her. She’s helped me to heal parts of myself, and even heal my relationships with other people in my life.
