About Me

Hello! I am so glad you are here. My name is Sara Barber and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working professionally in mental health for the last 3 years. In the last three years, I have worked largely with teens and young adults, helping explore everything from anxiety and depression to family dysfunction, developing coping skills and self-care plans, big life transition and adjustments, low self-esteem and confidence, and LGBTQ+ issues.

My goal as a therapist is to meet you where you are. Attending therapy for the first time or the millionth time is never easy, I strive to make our time together positive and productive even when discussing and exploring difficult topics. I believe that therapy should be a space where you can feel safe to explore and discuss whatever it is that is creating difficulty in your life as well as a space to celebrate your accomplishments and achievements.

We live in a society where seeking therapeutic help is not talked about or encouraged. You have made it to this step and I am proud of you.

I absolutely love talking to her. She is amazing, supportive, and many more things that make her great! She gives me good recommendations for coping, ways to remember things, and things to do to make my every day life less scary. She is amazing and I strongly recommend her. She’s outstanding!

Sara is an extremely helpful therapist who helped me focus on my goals related to mental health and gave me such great insight into ways emotions can be dealt with. She helped me understand my feelings in a different way. Especially with family, low self-esteem, trauma, and LGBTQ+ related problems. It’s worth it with her!

INCREDIBLY helpful, friendly, personable. She asked insightful questions, listened intently, and drew conclusions that greatly aided my mental health. Met my needs as LGBT+ and queer. Finally I had a positive experience with a therapist! I am looking forward to working with her again.
