I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Colorado with over 6 years of experience working as a psychocounselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, sexuality, anger management and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
For the last 6 years, I have worked specifically with youth who are in the justice system. Many youth I counsel have experienced a lot of trauma and tend to have problems with attachment, communication, impulse control, and co-morbid diagnoses. My approach with these youth is to be honest, non-judgemental, and to also explore thinking and behavioral problems so they can start to resolve them. I find that treating youth as whole people and building a trusting relationship is therapeutically beneficial and can lead to long term success.
I had a counselor when I was in my teen years and I truly believe this is what helped me through very dark times in my life. I've always wanted to be a counselor so I can give back!

Sara has been working with my teen the last few weeks and already I can see a difference. Our goal is for him to have full quality of life and control of his emotions and Sara is helping him achieve this.
I really appreciate Sara, she’s very easy to work with and I feel like she’s going to help me work through a lot of my issues in a caring and professional way. I finally feel like a therapist understands me and can really get to the root causes of some of my problems and help me work through the problems with intelligent advice.
For the last few weeks Sara has been helping me navigate some big topics that were becoming overwhelming in my day-to-day life. Her attentive listening and gentle approach makes it very easy to share with her. She has helped me re-examine past events with poignant question asking and care. I am so happy to have been paired with Sara.
