Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, EMDR, ADS
I work with individuals of all ages to address concerns ranging from depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, PTSD. A majority of individuals I see reach out because they have tried to address these issues by using other means and have not been as successful as they had hoped. They are able to work through these and other issues to find a place of healing, balance and direction.
My experience includes over 12 years in the mental health field working with a range of individuals from young children to older adults. I have very specific trauma related training including EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) certification and have several years of experience working with complex trauma cases.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, ADS
In my 27 years of providing counseling in both medical and private sectors I am firm in my belief that we all have the knowledge and ability to address the stresses that life can throw at us. However, sometimes because of extenuating circumstances our vision can become cloudy and we can lose our way. I work with individuals of all ages while practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to reinforce the importance of healthy coping skills and problem-solving skills. I have received specialized certifications in grief/loss and traumatic loss in addition to figuring out how to maintain a life while managing a chronic illness or potentially life limiting diagnosis.

Sarah is the most available therapist I’ve had, she’s willing to schedule when you need and if she’s not able to she can recommend someone you can talk to in her place. I would definitely recommend going to her."
"I started counseling sessions with Sarah, and after the first couple of sessions, I started to see that this was a beneficial step I had taken to handle my grief and loss.
