About Me

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.

She is so wonderful, no matter what i’m feeling or what is going on in my life she can always find a way to help me and teaches me how to reflect on my own emotions and reactions.

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.

Sarah had been great. She’s very attentive, open, and transparent. She’s very good at giving advice and hearing me out. I value her expertise, and I value having her as a part of my journey toward growth.

So far, so good. I will have to update after a few more weeks. I don’t want to sound biased when I say that I feel so much more comfortable with my therapist on this app, than any therapist I’ve met in person. I was very skeptical, but I’m glad i have it a try!

Sarah is incredible to talk to and has helped me process a lot of difficult emotions. I have felt more relaxed and less tense in my day to day life. Talking with Sarah is like talking with an old friend, and she makes sure to always keep the conversation flowing. She is extremely knowledgeable and I am very grateful to have been matched with her.

I am new to Sarah and I am already experiencing wonderful breakthroughs. I find her to be present, intellectually robust, and super helpful.

Sarah is amazingly compassionate and kind. I’m in therapy for unresolved childhood trauma, personal relationships that I consistently get wrong. She has a unique view, a wise perspective that often directs me to better understanding myself.
