GET TO KNOW SARAH
preferred pronouns: (she/her)
I have been working with children, teens, and parents for over 10 years to learn skills to manage big emotions. I am trained in treating anxiety and stress disorders within the family and will teach you concrete skills to become unstuck from your fears and start living life again. Using cognitive behavior therapy as my primary approach, I will help you or your child develop life-changing habits to help cope with any of life's obstacles. My therapy sessions are designed to provide you with effective tools to achieve your goals all while providing a safe and comfortable space. I take an active approach in treatment and the expectation will be to do work in between sessions. I do not have all of the answers but together we will find them.
SERVICES I OFFER
Personalized Treatment and Ongoing Support
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 concrete 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. I help families who struggle with anxiety, school refusal, academic stress, panic attacks, depression, and low self-esteem.
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.
Maybe anxiety and fear are crippling your life? Do you feel like life is too overwhelming or your strategies just aren't working anymore? Do you have trouble managing your emotions, feel stuck, or does anxiety hold you hostage from living life? I specialize in treating anxiety and stress disorders while teaching others skills to handle BIG emotions, improve their quality of life, and reconnect with others. Let me help you figure out how to get unstuck and start enjoying life again!
