Eating Disorders, LGBTQ+, Mood Disorders

Meet Sarah, a Licensed Social Worker with a Masters degree in social work who specializes in working with individuals ages 10+, couples, and families. Sarah’s areas of expertise include Eating Disorders, LGBTQ+, Mood Disorders, ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, Body Image, Co-Occurring Disorders, Depression, Life Changes/Adjustments, OCD, Self-Esteem/Self-Worth, Stress Management, Trauma/PTSD, and Women’s Issues.

Sarah’s experience in a variety of treatment settings, including inpatient behavioral health, community mental health, residential eating disorder treatment, and virtual eating disorder support services, has created a foundation for understanding the needs of clients. Sarah creates a therapeutic environment where clients’ goals are prioritized and their needs are respected, thus allowing for clients to feel invested in therapy sessions. Using multiple treatment approaches, Sarah structures sessions according to each client’s needs. These approaches include: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Strengths-Based. Sarah values feedback from clients on the therapeutic process and approach used during sessions, seeking to make the most out of each session. Moments in sessions that spark curiosity lead to making discoveries together.

Sarah’s work as a therapist allows for meaningful connections with others and beneficial service to the community. When not in sessions, Sarah is also an artist and a chef, both of which are hobbies that occasionally turn into professional exploits. Sarah also has two cats named Marvin and Miso, who chose their own names by using a lot of treats and some less official research methods.
