GET TO KNOW SARAH
preferred pronouns: (she/her)
I have been working with children, teens, and parents for over 10 years learn skills to manage emotions. Through various psychotherapy methods and collaborative treatment measures, I can help you or your child develop life-changing habits to help cope with any of life’s obstacles. My therapy sessions are designed to dissect personal issues and provide you with effective tools to achieve your goals all while providing a safe and comfortable space. I do not have all of the answers but together we will find them.
SERVICES I OFFER
Personalized Treatment and Ongoing Support
CHILDREN AND TEENS
I treat children & teens who struggle with anxiety, school refusal, academic stress, panic attacks, depression, and low self-esteem. Using an eclectic mix of therapies, treatment will be tailored to your child's specific needs but never losing sight of your child's strengths. Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child's treatment and involved in sessions, as I rarely work with children individually. Working within the family framework is what I find produces the best outcomes.
I help young adults who feel anxious about their future, lost about which path to choose, and struggle to end toxic, unhealthy relationships. Maybe you have tried to figure things out on your own but haven't had much success. Talking to someone who is non-judgemental, supportive, and validates how you feel can be the restart you are looking for. I can help you sort through life's twists and turns and find clarity in a safe and comfortable space.
PARENTS & FAMILIES
Do you feel like life is too overwhelming or all of your strategies just aren't working anymore? Let's face it parenting is hard work! I can help you repair relationships and rebuild connections within your family while offering a space to validate your frustrations and teach you different skills. You know your family best, and I will help you highlight the strengths that already exist and make suggestions on how you can be a part of the solution, not the problem in your relationship with your child.
