Hi, I'm Sarah
The things you do make so much more sense when you think about the things you’ve been through. For many, trauma has not been a single event but rather a constant reality.
Trauma can disrupt one’s life in a way that makes you question who you are, who you can trust, and how you can live in a world that has proven itself unsafe. As a therapist, I walk alongside you in your journey through recovery: providing space to grieve in your own way, an opportunity to sort through the complexity of your thoughts and emotions in an effort to make meaning, and tools to cope.
I graduated with my doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) and also obtained specialized theological training that helps me to address spiritual issues if you desire. I approach therapy from a non-judgmental place of compassion and partnership. I am interested in helping you to effectively engage in safe, healthy relationships. Social support is a buffer against traumatic stress and an indicator of resilience, so I take relationships very seriously. Therefore, I work with my clients to develop and strengthen connections to themselves, to healthy family and friends, and also to their communities.
I work with children, adults, and families around a variety of issues including: trauma, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, spiritual and religious concerns, change of life issues, maternal mental health concerns (infertility, loss, transitions), addiction, and dysfunctional patterns in relationships.
Yo hablo Español.
I look forward to the opportunity to hear and hold your stories as we walk together towards your goals for health and wholeness.
