About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) living in the Milwaukee, WI area. I work with individuals of all ages including children and teens involved in foster care, transitioning families, and dealing with mental health and substance use issues. The relationship between family members (whether family by choice or given) and the relationship with the young person’s self is very important to reconcile.

Nothing is too big or too small to be handled together. My job is to help you explore where these issues are coming from, what has worked in the past, and what will help you become a new “whole” person and family in the future.

I use what works best for you and your family. This is a safe place to be and discover. =] I look forward to get to know everyone and honored that you selected me.

A little about me:
My Personality: Bold, honest, empathetic, compassionate, articulate, and nerdy.
Therapy Style: Adaptable, trauma-informed, client-focused, solution-focused.

I was very skeptical about how well I would be matched up with a counselor, but Sara Aranda was exactly what I was looking for & needed. She has been very supportive & challenged me to do self reflection that I have needed. She's encouraging & firm. I believe that her moral compass aligns with mine which was also something that is important to me.
