“To be human is to need others, and this is no flaw or weakness.” — Dr. Sue Johnson
Hello! My name is Sarah and I’m a therapist that works with individuals, couples, and families. I utilize an Emotionally Focused Therapy approach, with some family of origin exploration, to help you feel more connected and secure in your most meaningful relationships.
We are relational beings that often feel distressed when our relationships are out of balance. Just as we are dynamic, our relationships too; they’re constantly changing and evolving. They need to be attended to, cared for, and will oftentimes need an occasional “tune up.” If you are wanting to feel more connected and fulfilled we can work together to explore patterns that may be impacting you. In our work together, we’ll aim to improve your sense of self and overall satisfaction in your relationships.
Seeing someone you love become trapped by addiction is incredibly difficult. During active addiction we don’t trust our own thoughts or feelings and struggle to know how to help. Sometimes you might feel you are losing yourself in the process. When our loved ones enter recovery we oftentimes have to relearn how to be in our relationships again. Navigating the ups and downs of recovery just adds another layer. We will work to heal the wounds addiction can wreck on a family and learn how to love each other again while fighting our common enemy—addiction.
How I Help
I believe in a collaborative approach to counseling. You are the expert on your own life and I will bring my own expertise to shape our work around your goals and needs. My hope is that our therapeutic relationship will create a safe, non-judgmental space to explore thoughts and feelings about the experiences and relationships in your life and for you to be able to share your story.
