“I believe every person is unique and needs something different...”


Hello! My name is Sarah and as your therapist, above all else, I value providing a safe, truly non-judgemental space where you can explore everything you're feeling. I believe every person is unique and needs something different, and that you know yourself best. Because of my training as a marriage and family therapist, I see your "problems" not as individual outliers in your life but intermingled and connected to your larger and smaller systems such as family, relationships, environment, physical health, spiritual beliefs, and so on. In addition to this approach, I use evidence-based modalities such as emotion-focused therapy. I hope this gives you some information about me that might help you decide if we are a good fit. 

I am currently a WA state licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York in International Relations with a minor in Spanish. I transitioned from wanting to work with people in the political sphere to the personal sphere, went on to earn my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York. During my clinical work, while earning my master’s degree, I provided therapy for clients in an outpatient setting, seeing a range of families, children, and couples of a variety of ages and circumstances. Additionally, I worked in an integrated care setting at a skilled nursing facility, aiding patients through major life transitions, major physical changes, end of life reflection, medical diagnoses, family adjustments to the previous and aided inpatient and family communication and collaboration with staff and other medical providers. I look forward to continuing my work with clients in the Northwest Washington Area.


Individual Counseling

Individual therapy is a wonderful way to learn more about yourself and how you function and understand the world. I work with children, teens, and adults who are seeking individual therapy.


Couples Counseling

With couples, I focus on each partner's emotional processes using emotion-focused therapy. This approach can help you both understand why you feel the way you do and how those feelings create behavioral patterns and ways you both can change for the better.


Family Counseling

Family therapy is a modality that can look many different ways. From teens with their parents, young children with their parents, siblings, multiple generations in therapy together (grandparents, aunts), adult children and their parents, caretakers, family friends who are central to a client's life, and so on. Family therapy can help families in transitions of all kinds.
