For over twenty years, Sara has helped people grow through turbulent times in their lives so that they can reclaim their full vitality and live the life they were born to live. She strives to connect with people's innate drive to thrive, and to provide optimum conditions for personal advancement.
When life's challenges exceed current coping abilities, Sara offers the counsellor advantage by providing developmental assists, resources, and an emotional environment conducive to growth and healing. Drawing on comprehensive clinical experience, she collaborates with each person/couple to identify the core issue, and then provides information, practical exercises, community resources, referrals, advocacy, developmental theory, and perhaps most importantly, whole-heart listening. She works with a variety of issues that hold people back from realizing their full potential, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, lack of assertiveness and self-esteem, codependent relationships. She subscribes to a strength-based, solution-focused model designed to elicit resiliency and reconnection.
At the root of all her work is the understanding that it's really demanding to be a human being, that we all suffer from time to time, and that learning to befriend ourselves through the hard times and nurturing our spirit brings back deep fulfillment and meaning. Her solid base in Interpersonal Neurobiology allows her to establish depth empathy and limbic resonance with those she works with so that they feel less alienated and can begin to attain secure attachment within themselves, with others, and with their world. A sense of belonging is essential to human health.
