About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker based in California with over 8 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Social Work from Valparaiso University in 2012 and then graduated with my Master's in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2013. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, parenting problems, autism, and ADHD.

My faith is also an integral part of my life. I believe that faith can play an important role in our healing and growth. I would love to hear more about your faith journey and how it is or is not a support to you in challenging times. I believe that God is with us in all things, good and challenging, and that we can lean on Him for support when we are going through tough times. A verse that always provides me comfort is "God works all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)

My therapy style is warm and engaging. I believe in treating everyone with respect, curiosity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused therapy. I also have experience with play therapy and Sandtray therapy. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Congratulations on taking the first step toward meaningful change. It takes courage and intentionality to take the first step towards change. I am here to walk with you on your journey and help you find the tools to be the best version of yourself.

Sara is a kind hearted person who truly listens to your needs and wants. She gives me new insight and perspective on my personal struggles. I also love that she involves the Lord into sessions where it is very applicable. I absolutely recommend her.
