About me

Welcome! My name is Sarah Thomasson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Clinical Addiction's Specialist (LCAS) in the state of North Carolina with nine years of experience as a clinician in behavioral health. While I have worked primarily in outpatient behavioral health settings, I have had the opportunity to begin providing telehealth therapy during the COVID-19 pandemic. My experience ranges in working with clients ages 18-70 with a broad spectrum of concerns including but not limited to substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, mood disorders, life transitions, intimate partner violence, chronic pain, perinatal and postnatal disorders, parenting stressors, grief and loss, and women-specific issues. I have also worked with many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.

My therapeutic approach is based in client-centered, family systems and humanistic theories, while integrating various other methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. I focus on providing a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental, and empowering counseling style to assist you in achieving the desired changes you hope to make in your life. It is important that we create a safe space for you within the therapeutic relationship to address life challenges you are facing. I utilize a trauma-informed approach to ensure that I am sensitive to your experiences and believe in identifying and focusing on your personal strengths to find solutions to your problems. Therapy can be creative and it may be helpful for us to implement various modalities such as writing or technology to address your unique concerns. You are your own expert--my role is to be a guide where needed along your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sarah Thomasson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Sarah Thomasson has been a light in my life. I look forward to our conversations every week because she truly validates how I am feeling, offers great advice and is always there for me. She is a great listener and great at calming me down. I had a really rough depressive episode I went through and she was so helpful through it. I don’t know what I’d do without her in my corner.

Written on Apr 03, 2022 after therapy with Sarah for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and compassion fatigue

Only two sessions in and I'm already so grateful for Sarah. It's such a relief to have someone from the outside looking in to provide me with some perspective, extra support, and simply a space to be heard.
