Hi! I’m Sarah, a psychodynamic and relational therapist. As such, I help you feel less alone while navigating the challenges in the world today. I do so by making our sessions a safe place where we work together to help explore your current thoughts, feelings, emotions, and past experiences. All this can be overwhelming, but I am here to support you every step of the journey.
Even from early on I knew I wanted to be a therapist. I’ve found that I excel in connecting with others by creating warm, genuine environments where people can feel safe to be their true self. Building a unique relationship with each person allows me to identify your specific strengths, challenges, needs, and goals. Working collaboratively we get to focus on building self understanding, improving your life, overcoming challenges, and have a few laughs on the way.
I have experience working with women’s issues, anxiety, body image, disordered eating, sexual violence, as well as many other life stressors. Having worked with teens and young adults I also have vast experience working with the challenges of transitional periods and the effects of media on self-image and self-esteem.
One of my specialty area is college students and recent college graduates. I provide a safe and empathetic space for young adults to navigate the challenges they face during this transformative period. With a deep understanding of the academic, social, and emotional pressures that college and post-college life can bring, I offer tailored guidance and support to help my clients foster personal growth. My goal is to empower my clients to build resilience and make informed decisions that lead to their overall well-being for years to come!
As a person and a therapist, I value body and sex-positivity, as well as anti-oppressive practice. Combining my own experiences from Florida State University and New York University, along with your expertise about your own life and self, we will work together towards growth and healing. No matter what you are going through, I am here to help you gain practical skills, grow in self compassion, and live your best life.
