Sarah's Bio
Sarah was originally drawn towards the study of human behavior, culture, and society with the goal to effect change related to social inequalities on a broader scale. Over time, she found herself circling back towards areas of work with children, adults, and families in a more personal way. Sarah has seen firsthand and thus believes strongly in one of her core values and inspirations as a therapist: human strength and resiliency in the face of hardship.

Returning to her roots in New York City, she discovered that psychotherapy offers a lens from which to understand people’s challenges and guide them towards the changes they need to make in order to feel empowered and fulfilled in their lives, work, and relationships. In a social work capacity before entering the field of psychotherapy, Sarah worked in educational settings, shelters, and with at-risk adolescents.

As a psychotherapist, she received training and provided family and couples therapy. Sarah then worked for an additional 10 years in outpatient/community mental health. This provided a broad range of experience in treating and supporting individuals with overlapping mental health and relational/interpersonal needs.

She is now dedicated solely to her private practice and utilizes the above experiences to inform her current style: an eclectic blend of Jungian, relational, and pragmatic/solution-focused psychotherapy.


From the early days of practicing in community mental health, Sarah has provided treatment to patients carrying a number of different insurance plans. She found that the covid pandemic and rise in demand for mental health support informed her decision to accept some insurance plans in her private practice. She also tries to be as accommodating as possible when it comes to providing care and offer sliding scale on a case-by-case basis for those whose insurance plans she doesn't accept. Call Sarah today for a consultation and she will do her best to accommodate to your situation or provide referrals/resources that can.

Sarah offers sliding scale. If you are interested in psychotherapy, you can reach out and schedule a brief consult to discuss payment options. Please note: some insurance plans also offer out-of-network coverage and some jobs provide support/coverage for mental health treatment. If this is the case for you, speak with your job and Sarah is happy to provide the necessary documentation to help you cover the cost of treatment session.

Individual Therapy

Adolescent and Adult Individual Therapy: Tailored to your needs, individual therapy is a way to explore and address mental health and interpersonal concerns in order to feel confident and fulfilled.

Couples Therapy

Whether anxious about an upcoming event/life change, struggling with long-standing patterns, or needing to address co-parenting concerns couples therapy can help partners to better communicate and feel heard by one another in order to make healthier decisions beneficial to both people.

Family Therapy

Families choose to engage in therapy as a group for a variety of reasons, whether prompted by a struggling child, relationship/marital conflict, or parenting disagreement. This often takes place in conjunction with individual psychotherapy and provides a unique opportunity to examine maladaptive communication patterns and replace them with healthier strategies so that everyone can hear one another and feel heard.

Mental Health Treatment

Sarah welcomes a team approach, connecting with and providing referrals to other providers when needed (ex. Psychiatrists, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Psychologists/Neuropsychologists, Nutritionists, and Primary Care Physicians). She works with individuals with a variety of relationship challenges and mental health diagnoses, including but not limited to: Mood Disorders (ex. Depression, Bipolar) Anxiety and Panic Disorders Trauma (PTSD) Co-occurring disorders (ex. ADHD, ASD) Family/relationship and school-based issues Family and couples conflicts Parenting Disordered eating Gender dysphoria Postpartum depression and mood disorders Reach out if you have any questions and would like to see if Sarah could be a good fit for you.

Therapeutic Style

Sarah practices an eclectic style of therapy, meaning she does not take a one-size-fits-all approach. She would liken her framework closest to that of a Jungian psychotherapist but believes that different methods and approaches are called for in different circumstances based upon individual and family needs. She has been greatly informed by her family therapy training and by previous employment in early childhood where she provided intergenerational support, group work, and individual guidance to adolescent parents, their infants/toddlers, and the parents of the teens in the program. While this has given her practice a relational framework, she does not practice "family therapy" exclusively. She integrates her knowledge of family systems, psychodynamic psychotherapy, [when indicated] art therapy techniques, and behavioral approaches to meet her clients where they are. Direct and practical in nature, Sarah balances this with offering a warm and empathic environment where feelings are never judged but are rather opportunities for insight and discovering strengths.
