About me

My name is Sarah O’Brien and I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Mississippi with nine years of experience with working with children and adolescents ranging in ages 4-18, as well as working with adults. I have worked with Clients with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to anxiety, parenting problems, relationship issues, autism spectrum disorder and ADHD. I have experience with working with the LGBTQ+ community and have been trained in EMDR therapy. I believe in treating everyone with compassion and respect. My counseling style is warm and interactive and I approach counseling through a client-centered approach where the client takes an active role in making positive changes for their lives. I believe in tailoring a treatment plan and session to session dialogues to meet each person’s needs. I look forward to working with you!

Sarah has been a rock for me in the last year. I’ve gone through some serious breakups and betrayals, changes in my body and medicine I’m taking, changes in my work, and she has been there every step of the way. Allowing me to grow on my own while also providing tools for me to cope with change. I’m so grateful for her and would recommend her to anyone.

Sarah is kind, caring and thoughtful. She brings together things I have told her over multiple sessions to give insight and work through underlying issues. She offers effective techniques and tools for me to use with myself, always supports me and is neverendingly warm, friendly and patient.

I have really enjoyed working with Sarah! She really listens and provides great feedback. I feel really comfortable saying how I am feeling in a safe space and she had lots of times available for phone calls.
