ABOUT SARAH

Trusted Counselling Professional

Sarah is a highly skilled and trained therapist and social worker. She comes to Vancouver Island with over 15 years of experience and training working with Mental Health, Eating Disorders, Family Transitions and the LGBTQ Community.


As a family-based therapist, she strives to have parents involved in the therapeutic process. Sarah is trained in both expressive arts and play therapy, which allows her to connect quickly with clients.

 

THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES

Sarah has extensive experience in many areas including common child and parenting problems such as managing children’s behavior and helping parents develop positive parenting practices.


Sarah also can help with more serious problems in childhood or adulthood such as depression, anxiety, stress, difficulty coping with life, low self-esteem, trauma, bullying, grief and loss, and LGBTQ support. Whatever your concerns are, Sarah has the skills to help.

TRAUMA FOCUSED YOUTH & CHILD THERAPY

This service is a favorite among many of Sarah's clients, as it is often times one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. Sarah's job is to give you the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. After several sessions, you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise.

FAMILY THERAPY

Is parenting and family life turning out different than you imagined? You are not alone in this experience. Sarah's expertise and family work can allow you to develop new ways to get back to enjoying one another and building the family unit you dreamed of.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY

Do you feel like you are always adding new tasks to your to-do list but never crossing anything out? Often times it is our own self-defeating beliefs that are getting in the way. Sarah's specialization will help guide and inspire you to achieve more of your personal and professional goals. Get in touch today and start taking control of your life!

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With my coaching sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.

LGBTQ SUPPORT

Sarah has extensive experience working with children, youth and families in the LGBTQ community and provides a safe and welcoming space for the queer community.
