Sarina Grant

(MS, LMFT)

About Me

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,
Sarina

Written by E.R. on May 15, 2020 after counseling with Sarina for 2 weeks on issues concerning eating disorders

Sarina is the kindest and most accepting therapist I have ever worked with. I came in desperately needing help with an eating disorder and after several less than awesome experiences in therapy and she has restored my confidence. I really couldn't be happier and I think everyone should be as lucky as I've been to get a therapist as amazing, sweet, and patient as Sarina is.

Sarina is amazing. Even when I don't regularly schedule time to talk with her, she consistently sends messages to check-in with me. She listens to my concerns and provides positive feedback even when things are a bit rough for me. I am so glad I was able to connect with her.

As someone who has found therapy intimidating in the past, I find it really easy to discuss difficult subjects. Sarina is really able to give you that "judgment free zone" that's important when you're trying to heal.

Sarina has helped me in more ways than I care to admit haha. Within the last 9 months or so, so many things have happened & she’s been here with me, supporting me through it. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor...or friend. ❤️

Sarina is an amazingly kind and caring counselor. She recently got me through an incredibly difficult crisis enabling me to finish my business trip successfully. She is always available and works with my psychiatrist whenever the news arises. I’m so glad I found her! Thank you BetterHelp for having such a great platform and hiring terrific counselors like Sarina Grant!

I've been working with Sarina for quite a while now, and I feel so much stronger than who I was before. I feel like I understand myself more. I have more control over my anxiety and I know what to do when I do have triggers. Sarina is incredible and if anyone is considering trying counseling, this is your sign to do so! ❤

I've been working with Sarina since July and she is still plenty amazing 7 months later! Her ability to remember details is something I appreciate a lot. I found myself growing SO much over time and I don't know if I would have been brave enough to try out different paths in my life without her supporting me and talking me through my thought processes. I feel incredibly blessed to have been paired with Sarina by chance!

Sarina goes above and beyond what I’ve ever known or expected from a therapist. She is extremely skilled and empathetic, checks in, and remembers every relevant detail about our sessions. Could not recommend a therapist more.

I absolutely love my therapy sessions with Sarina. I feel very comfortable talking to her about anything and everything, and our conversations don’t feel scripted or mundane. When I talk to Sarina I feel like I am confiding in a friend. I would absolutely recommend her- she’s the best!

Sarina’s great, definitely a great counselor. Listens well, provides effective plans for wellness and has a great deal of compassion. I was initially concerned that she would be too “nice-nice” but she has challenged me on some of my own bull. Would definitely recommend.

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.
