Ed.S., NCC, LPC, CPCS
In Sarah's own words: "I see counseling as a collaborative process between individuals. I consider it a privilege to walk with you on your journey, whether it consists of management of symptoms, self-discovery, healing, or growth. My vision is to empower you to make decisions that best accommodate your lifestyle and current situation, and with which you are comfortable. I fully believe that you know yourself best and therefore, together, we create a unique and personalized approach to your counseling that includes the goals you have for yourself. I seek to provide you with a non-judgmental, supportive environment where you can feel free to be who you are and accepted completely."
