Over the past 25 years, Sarah has served as a clinician treating the effects of abuse, illness, depression, marital conflict, childhood emotional disorders, aging, illness and loss. She is trained in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Depth Psychology, Family Systems, and the latest researched based treatments for trauma including EMDR. From the beginning, Sarah was fortunate to follow the wisdom of Carl Jung, who first developed the concepts of our unique typology and inner spiritual journey to wholeness. Through times of stress and transition, we are invited in Jungian terms, to fully embrace our psychological styles and strengths especially during times of strife. Sarah is a passionate believer in the process of healing ourselves through inquiry and self-understanding we make room for more happiness and joy!
“I grew up in Denver, and attended Colorado College in Colorado Springs graduating with a bachelors degree in Sociology. I moved to the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, where I began my work to better the world, first as a peace activist and then as a community worker with frail and isolated elderly.
I returned to Colorado to attend the University of Denver for a master’s degree in Social Work and began my work with highly impacted youth and families in the educational and psychiatric field. Right after obtaining my master’s degree, I entered a year long Post Master’s Fellowship at the University of Colorado Health Science Center with more intensive work in a hospital outpatient setting with families of children with disabilities. I stay involved in the larger community through Denver University, where I have served as an adjunct professor and have a role in the training of new clinicians at the DU Graduate school of Social Work.
I know the difficult paths life sometimes takes us, and have had to delve deep into family patterns to learn and unlearn so I can “walk the walk” along with my clients. In my free time, I enjoy meditation and silent retreats, yoga, gardening and the mountains. In my home, you can find me happily taking care of a demanding pair of cats, and a pair of energetic teens and one old and squeaky guinea pig.
