My Approach to Helping

Sarah's approach to counseling is both practical and compassionate. Sarah believes that helping individuals, families and couples build the real-life tools to create enduring change and better relationships begins with true collaboration between client and therapist. Sarah works diligently with clients to create concrete solutions and goals that address the distinct challenges of every client or family situation. Families make lasting change by becoming empowered to apply everything they have learned in therapy toward their lives. Clients will be encouraged to do homework and reading in between therapy sessions to advance their learning. Sarah worked as an adoption and foster care social worker for 8 years. Throughout this time she trained in evidence-based PCIT, wrote adoption home studies, and worked with families to maintain and improve their child's placements, as well as improve attachments. This makes Sarah specifically well-fitted to work with children who have undergone changes in family structure and who also may be struggling as a result of attachment problems. Additionally, Sarah's training involved working as an outpatient therapist at numerous community non-profits, as an administrator, elementary school counselor, equine-assisted psychotherapist, and board director. Sarah is married with two children, and two dogs, including her tiny assistant "Roxi", as well as a horse named Tanner.
