Sarah started her career in Ottawa as an addiction counsellor for two years. Sarah moved to British Columbia in 2011 and has been working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, and other mood disorders.

By using a wide range of therapeutic techniques, such as Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, CBT, DBT-informed, Emotion Focuses Family Therapy, Solution Focused, and Narrative based practices, Sarah’s goal is to increase each client’s ability to develop healthy coping skills, to be empowered in their life, to increase their self-efficacy, and to provide a space to build hope and purpose.
