About Sarah

Sarah Young, MFT Intern, is committed to helping individuals, couples, and families find their most authentic selves and the relationships in their lives that help them thrive as individuals. She is compassionate, and direct, and firmly believes that you are the expert in your own life.

It can feel challenging to ask for help, so it’s important to Sarah that you move at your own pace in your work with her. She understands that you have a story that is uniquely your own and is worth telling. In her practice, she is drawn to a collaborative, client-centered approach to facilitating therapy. She works from a trauma-informed, anti-racist, and body-positive lens.

Sarah’s ultimate goals are to be a source of unwavering support in her clients’ lives, and create a safe space to work out life’s challenges and help her clients get closer to their most authentic selves. When working with clients, Sarah is authentic and warm. She loves guiding clients to their own insight so they can have those “ah-ha!” moments. When working with couples, families, and individuals, Sarah enjoys using Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy. She will tailor her approach to what you need, your values and beliefs, and how you most easily process information and the change that can come with it.

She recognizes that your appointment together might be the only hour of the week when you can slow down and focus on yourself or your relationship. She will honor that time and work with you to make sure it is utilized in the best way possible.
