Hello! My name is Sarina Grant. I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in the state of California. Although my license is titled "marriage and family," I work mostly with individuals. For over three years, it has been my mission to help others with concerns such as anxiety, eating disorders, relationship conflicts, family discord, depression, major life changes, and trauma.
Throughout the process, I aim to be a safe and sturdy platform for you to stand on, keeping you secure as you explore the issues most important to you. My goal is to hear you, and listen deeply to the challenges that you are facing, while providing knowledge and empathic guidance to help you get where you want to be. I prefer Attachment Theory, and Cognitive Behavioral Theory, however, I tailor my counseling style to each individual.
I value therapy SO much. I spent many years as a client, and feel as if it shaped my life, allowing me to become the person I wanted to be. I hope to pass the gift that my therapist gave me onto my clients.
If you think I might be a good fit for you, please contact me! I'd love to get to know you and help you throughout your counseling journey.
I look foward to meeting you,
- Stress, Anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Self esteem
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

I was skeptical of online therapy and particularly skeptical when I got matched with Sarina, who seemed so young to me at first. How could someone this young understand the unique pressures of life in your fifties? But her youth is part of what I love about our sessions now. She has a youthful optimism, and it almost feels like she’s my personal cheerleader sometimes. Yet she is a great listener, thoughtful, kind, very insightful and gently prods me in new, healthier directions.
Sarina brings a lot of herself into her work, so her sessions feel authentic and not academic, though her training is always evident. I’m really glad I got matched with her and I’m finding BetterHelp to be helpful through a particularly challenging period of my life.
Sarina is incredible! Before her, I wasnt sure if therapy would even work or be worth it. But it definitely is! I instantly felt like I could trust her and opening up to her felt natural, almost like talking to an old friend. 1000000/10 reccomend anyone to talk to Sarina. Anyone would benefit from having Sarina as their counselor. ❤
Sarina made me feel super comfortable from the beginning! It was a sigh of relief having someone on the other end of the line listen to my frustrations and feelings. I could tell that she was a great listener and just made me feel less overwhelmed at the end of our sessions. She was there through message in between sessions and always attentive to my needs. So glad I found her to help me with through the really tough times.
Sarina has been an amazing addition to my life. I'm beyond thankful I went through with opening up to her. She’s absolutely amazing. I have grown immensely with her help over the past few weeks. She’s definitely a blessing.
Let's spend a moment and think about Sarina.
I'll be honest, when I signed up for BetterHelp, I gave the barest of frameworks. I didn't want to control who they sent to me, I felt like that was up to the Universe to decide. Those of you that prefer a higher level of control are probably hyperventilating now; but I have enough respect for chaos (as opposed to imposing my own order) that even if this didn't work out, at least I let have Chaos have its say.
Chaos did well. Sarina is smart, attentive, and definitely the kind of person I want helping me shoveling all the ... compost of the past decades.
I think that's enough to be considered a "good" review, since that's what I set out to provide.
No matter who you choose, dive in with both feet. Don't be coy, this is a person that's internally motivated to care for others -- and also happens to do it professionally. You're gaining nothing by not laying all of the cards on the table. Trust me, therapists have a much-diminished capacity for shock, unless you confess to some sort of bizarre mass harm to others. Even then, I feel like they'd work on getting you help.
I'm really happy with the therapist that the universe supplied.
Sarina instantly made me feel safe and at ease. She's super thorough with all her responses and asks all the right questions to help explore ideas more. She sets an amazing example of how great e-therapy can be.
I have only completed a couple sessions, but so far so good!
Sarina is very helpful and supporting of my problems. She helps me to understand and get clarity with regards to the issues so that I can act accordingly.
Sarina is a caring, upbeat and supportive counselor. She’s a great listener and asks the right questions to personalize the therapy tailored to your needs.
