Hi there and welcome! I’m so happy you’ve found my page. My name is Sarah and I am a therapist at Austin Counseling and Nutrition. I especially enjoy working with adolescents ages 13-17 as well as young adults. My specialty is working with individuals who have experienced sexual abuse or are/have been involved in the foster care system. 

When working with clients, I approach each interaction from a strengths-based, solution focused mindset while exploring the parts that make up the whole person. My goal is for every client who comes into my office to feel seen, heard, and comfortable. I value going at your own pace in therapy as I understand how hard it can be to open up about past traumas to yet another new person. I believe every individual is capable of integrating their past into who they are today and it is by examining where we come from that we become the most authentic versions of ourselves.  '

My clinical focus has been centered around supporting individuals with trauma/PTSD, sexual abuse, foster/adoptive children and families, as well as disordered eating. I work from a family systems approach that values the individual within the family and draw from different techniques such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), EMDR, Parent Child-Care (PC-Care), Phase Based Treatment for Problematic Sexual Behaviors (PBT for PSB), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Art Therapy. 

I have experience working as an adoption caseworker for Child Protective Services and believe it has given me a unique skillset to support young people and families navigating this difficult system. I have also worked in a Children’s Advocacy Center providing therapeutic care for adolescents and children who have experienced or witnessed sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence, and violent crimes. 

I see clients in-person at our office, and virtually. Our office in Northwest Austin allows me to provide therapy for people in Austin and many surrounding areas. I can provide therapy for clients who are virtual throughout Texas. If you feel that I may be a good fit to support you or your child, please reach out to me at (512) 813-1337  and I would be happy to set up a free 15-minute consultation call to see if we would be a good fit.
