Message from Sarah
I believe that the quality of our relationships affects every aspect of our lives. Being in healthy relationship not only to others, but also with ourselves, is imperative and requires skill. In working with me you will very likely cry, but you will also laugh while gaining insight into your past and knowledge for how best to go forward. When working with couples, I am not afraid to tell the truth and hold partners accountable for their immature/harmful behavior. Clients have appreciated my commitment to telling the truth with love, the care I show in the face of their pain, and the acceptance they experience when talking about things they may not have told anyone before.
As your therapist I view my role not as expert, but as a fellow traveler- one who is applying what I share with you to my own life. Like you, I do that well some days and not others. We are not perfect.
