Hello and thank you for reviewing my counselor profile. I look forward to the possibility of working with you on this part of your life journey. Here you can find personal and professional information about me, Sarah Paulick, M.Ed., LMHC. I am originally from South Florida and received my master's degree in Counselor Education from Florida Atlantic University. Since 2016, I've been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and providing clinical services since 2012. Since licensed, I've been developing programs for a non-profit that works with at-risk youth, providing counseling, developmental assets learning and career training. I also have a private practice and work with teens and adults in the community. In my free time, I scuba diving, love taking my dogs at the beach, swim, and volunteer my time in conservation efforts.
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and complex trauma and have experience working with first-responders, and child, adolescent and adult survivors of sexual abuse and assaults. My practice focuses on helping clients recover from their anxieties, unstable moods, post-traumatic stress concerns, dissociation and somatic responses. I also take interest in helping adults struggling with relational codependency and adults trying to recover from childhood adversity. Along those lines, I have worked with clients who are members of the twelve-step meetings/groups: CoDA (Codependents Anonymous) and ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families Anonymous).
I have trained with the Beck Institute, which founded Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT strategies may help clients recognize and change unhelpful thinking and behavioral patterns which then improves symptom stability and level of functioning. Currently, I'm level 2 trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which may help clients process traumatic memories, target faulty beliefs, and come to an adaptive resolution. Due to the limitations of online counseling, I cannot use EMDR fully with clients, however, there are many adaptable skills taken from the work of EMDR that I would be happy to share with my clients online. Recently I have become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and I look forward to helping more trauma survivors learn to thrive.
If you were my client, I would help you become your own therapist on your journey to self-discovery and development. I'd be honored to navigate you through your current life-phase challenges, relationship concerns, and any difficult symptoms related to your emotional health and well-being. I'd help you tap into your internal strengths, resources and support system so that you can move forward and live a quality life. I'll guide you to find relief from your symptoms and increase your resilience during a time of crisis and adverse life situations. You will likely find meaning, identify your core values, and reach your goals within a short period of time in counseling with me.
Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. All the best on your journey!

So far I feel I have the most capable and competent counselor I’ve ever had.
Sarah has been amazing to work with. She has assisted with many resources to help with different situations. She is always responsive and easy to talk to.
Sarah is great to work with. She is helping me through some issues and I find her to be very knowledgeable. Her non-judgmental and caring approach has really helped me feel comfortable and that has enabled me to start healing. I would recommend her to anyone.
