I'm passionate about helping clients find relief from anxiety and reconnect with their authentic selves after trauma. Therapy with me is more than symptom reduction. It's about honoring your needs, values, emotions and boundaries in and out of therapy. 

Therapy with Sara

Person Centered Approach

Being a human is messy and hard! My style is collaborative, compassionate and person centered. I help clients understand their experience in a non-patholigizing way. I tailor my work to each client as I believe that all individuals have different and intersecting identities which impact how they experience the world. As such, I provide a trauma informed, anti-racistpro-reproductive freedom, LGBTQ+ affirming, fat positive space.

Ease and Accessibility 

I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone! That's why I offer evening and weekend appointments. I also offer both in person and virtual sessions. I am in network with most major insurances. While I currently do not have slots open for sliding scale clients, I'm happy to connect clients to providers who do.

Treating Anxiety + Trauma

My approach to treating anxiety and trauma is strengths based and de-pathologizing. I help clients understand how and why their brain and body respond to stressors. Together we identify existing skills and resources, then build new tools to manage symptoms. Often, I join clients in digging deep to understand how early attachment wounds and events may impact their view of themselves and the world. While the foundation of my approach is a warmhearted presence, I often draw from evidence-based treatments like CBT, ERP, DBT, ACT, IFS, and EFT.


I am trained in Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR. EMDR is a an evidence based modality that uses the brain’s natural healing processes to ease the symptoms of trauma-related concerns. TLDR; EMDR helps remove the emotional charge of a trauma so that you can remember the details of the event without the feelings of discomfort. SAFE EMDR is designed to specifically heal relational and complex trauma.

Are You Ready To Grow?

I consider it the greatest honor that clients allow me to join along side them in their lowest lows, highest highs and monotony of everyday life. Trauma and anxiety thrive in silence. But, you don't have to face them alone. We can take this journey boldly together.
