My Approach to Helping
Sarah Lesniak, LSW, looks at the therapeutic process as a collaborative relationship. She meets clients halfway if they are willing to meet her halfway. Sarah treats clients as people and not their disorders, and she strives to provide a safe, comfortable place for them to open up.
Sarah earned an MSW from the University of St. Francis and has extensive experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and post-traumatic stress (PTSD). She currently treats clients age 9 and up.
In therapy, Sarah uses dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing to help support the client through the recovery process. She also provides homework to help clients continue to progress outside of sessions. In every situation, Sarah is compassionate, supportive, and wants clients to get the help they need.
