I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in Utah with over 5 years of experience working as a mental health therapist and crisis counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, academic and family stress as well as clients struggling with suicidal thoughts and self-harming behaviors. I have extensive knowledge of the foster care system and attachment issues.
My counseling style is attentive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Reaching out for help is difficult and I am here to help support you as you embark on this journey.
I look forward to working with you!

Very responsive, inviting, gentle woman. My 14 year old son and I have been connected w/her for almost a month now. I have seen notable progress in him. Also very attentive , supportive to me as a parent.
Sara makes me feel understood and that I have a voice to turn to in therapy where I didn't have one before. Not only is she open to listening and understanding in great depths, but she is quick to helping with a lot of resources and information and getting to the core of the issues very accurately. I can't thank her enough for all the help I'm receiving from her.
She is really caring and is always checking on me.
