About Me

I graduated with a Bachelors in Counseling/Psychology at William Jessup University and a Masters as a Marriage and Family therapist at Western Seminary. I have experience working as a community based counselor, where I have worked in the schools, community and clinic setting with youth. I am licensed in the state of California as a Marriage and Family therapist as well as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I enjoy working with an individual who wants help. However, perhaps they feel stuck and they want someone to help them process things so that they can accomplish their goals. I use a client-centered approach with a warm and compassionate style. I believe that often times people know what they need but sometimes they also want support along the way to achieve their full potential. My hope is for my clients to feel happy and successful. I am excited to help you on your journey to lasting change. I have experience working with client's who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, and as well as working with the whole family unit.

I am a busy mama of two. Therefore, I currently only have availability for sessions on nights and weekends. These sessions are 30 minute in duration. Please know I value self care. I lead by example and take most holidays off to be with my family.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sarah Ochsner. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Written by H.E. on Jul 11, 2022 after therapy with Sarah for 2 months

Sarah has been working with my 13 yr old daughter. My daughter finds it really easy to talk to Sarah which means a lot since my daughter has social anxiety and hates talking to people. But Sarah makes for a really comfortable and safe experience.

My first time having a therapist and I was nervous. I lucked out with Sarah. She’s giving me incredible info and teaching me new coping techniques.

Work with me!
