My Approach to Helping

You wake up and think to yourself, “I just can't keep feeling this way.” Maybe it’s the anxiety or the stress. Maybe it’s the depression. Perhaps it is the overwhelming feelings of low self-esteem when you look in the mirror. Whatever it is on that particular day, you know that you just cannot continue to live like this and feel this way. You want to wake up in the morning and feel hopeful, excited, and confident to tackle the day ahead. You long to finally be able to enjoy your time spent with loved ones and be present — rather than feeling consumed by feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or poor body image.

After overcoming an eating disorder and anxiety disorders through personal therapy myself, I know just how debilitating it can feel to live with these symptoms. It doesn’t have to be this way, and you do not need to figure this out all on your own. You CAN live the life you've always envisioned - achieving your goals and exuding confidence. I can help you.

My name is Sarah Lawley and I am an LMFT serving clients located all over California. Clients that work with me appreciate my honesty, expertise, and ability to relate to them as a human being. I also offer the convenient option of online therapy sessions. Schedule your free consultation today and let's help you find joy and confidence in your life again!

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Many people consider asking for help to be a weakness. I, on the other hand, see it as a strength. Being vulnerable shows that you are actually NOT afraid to show up as your authentic self and improve in areas that you may need help with. The truth is, we all need help sometimes...just not everyone is brave enough to ask for it. I commend you for respecting yourself and honoring the need for support during this time. The first step to change is self-awareness; so you are already halfway there!
