She received her Master’s Degree from the University of TN College of Social Work. Since graduate school, she has worked at Vanderbilt University with both the Psychiatric Hospital and the Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program, along with providing crisis assessments in the Children’s Hospital Emergency Room. She was a contract child and family therapist at Renewal House where her work focused on parent-child communication and relationship repair work. At Catholic Charities she worked with adopted children providing individual and family therapy as well as education on attachment and trauma.
Sarah is trained in a variety of evidence-based modalities including but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT); Circle of Security; and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). She has specific training and interest in working with those struggling with: trauma, attachment issues, loss, family conflict, anxiety, depression, self-injury, and other maladaptive coping skills.
Having done psychiatric crisis assessments in the Vanderbilt Children’s Emergency Room and intakes within her other clinical settings, Sarah has experience assessing a broad spectrum of psychiatric disorders, helping to determine proper level of care and interventions, developing treatment plans, and collaborating with families and multi-disciplinary providers.
Sarah enjoys providing both individual and family therapy, parent coaching, and group therapy. While at Vanderbilt she led adolescent groups. She brings this experience to NCFWC where she heads up our adolescent group therapy services providing both skill building groups as well as a process group. The process group allows clients to practice the skills they are learning as well as hear and learn from other peers, which offers a richer experience to their skill building.
Sarah’s approach to therapy is strongly based in healing through relationships. She likes to focus on helping individuals and families develop skills to communicate more effectively and ultimately learn to live happier more enjoyable lives. She strives to create a fun, safe, therapeutic environment to allow individuals to learn, grow, and heal.
