About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over 8 years of experience providing therapy and other mental health services. I have experience working in a variety of settings including community mental health, community health centers, homeless outreach, and private practice. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Master's in Social Work from The Ohio State University.

I believe strongly in working in collaboration with my clients to address barriers and patterns that hinder. It is important to me for my clients to be greeted with empathy and warmth and to be empowered to work towards their individual goals. My priority is to ensure that those I see feel like they are a part of the process, working at a pace that is comfortable to them, all while building insight and skills. I follow a strengths-based, person-centered approach, utilizing individualized methods and evidenced-based practices to meet your needs and therapeutic goals.

I highly recommend Sarah Novak as a therapist. She is a great listener and very empathetic. She also taught me techniques to help with my anxiety and stress along with ideas of how to navigate some tough situations. She helped me through a rough time in my life, and I was so happy to match up with her as my therapist.

In just a few visits, Sarah has given me so many tools to help with negative and pervasive thoughts. I feel completely comfortable talking to her, as she expresses excellent empathy. She gives great advice, and always asks the right questions to get to the root of my issues without being judgmental at all. I would recommend her to anyone!

I’ve been working with Sarah for a few weeks now relating to some anxiety issues and I honestly feel like it’s been life changing. I’m learning how to cope with my anxiety, how to better communicate my feelings and exercises I can do to help get things off my mind. Sarah is very supportive and kind, and always offers fantastic advice

Work with me!
