About me

I am a licensed therapist in Nebraska, Iowa, and Florida with 8 years of experience. I have worked with clients with various concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance misuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse—providing support, advocacy, safety planning, and resources to survivors of powerbase violence. I focused on building my knowledge to provide inclusive, trauma-informed advocacy and mental health services with integrity and innovation.
My therapy style is warm, direct, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines attachment-based, internal family systems, solution-focused, client-centered, and dialectical behavior therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and take the first steps towards change. I am here to support and empower you if you are ready to take that step.
I look forward to working with you!

I have bad anxiety and a lot of childhood trauma. She has given great advice on how to deal with both. She is very nice and a great listener. Definitely recommend her.

Sarika was great support throughout my therapy. She's been extremely accommodating and understanding. She's gone above and beyond and helped me to feel better in very short period of time. Since I've started my therapy I felt relived and I firmly believe it was the guidance and assistance I was provided with by Sarika. Thank you so much for all help!
