In my work as a therapist, I am privileged to be able to help people improve their relationships, their families and their lives. I’ve helped couples rediscover their love and commitment to each other, young dads and moms become amazing parents, and those plagued by domestic violence actually break the cycle. I believe that people are capable of changing their story. I’ve helped people heal and overcome just about anything imaginable—with compassion and empathy.
While I love working with all clients, including individuals, couples, and families, I specialize in Marriage & Family Therapy and am an expert in child development and parenting practices. I also offer specialized experience working with and supporting military couples and families.
I am passionate about supporting couples and families with practical skills to improve relationships and reduce stress, misunderstandings, and conflict.
My experiences, both personal and professional, inspire all of the work I do in my daily practice. I have faith in people’s ability to move on from the past, change themselves and improve their lives, even when things seem hopeless.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The University of Texas, and a Masters in Clinical Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. My clinical expertise is further supported by substantial clinical research experience in marriage satisfaction, child development, and attachment theory.
It is very hard to find counselors who have the skills and experience when it comes to family counseling. Additionally, getting somebody who will come into your home is virtually impossible.
After having been through a bunch of different counselors, psychs, etc. for both marriage and kids – most don’t offer anything tangible. It is fine talking about your challenges, but I am always looking for something I can actually do to change / improve / modify the situation – Sarah has those skills.
