I work with vulnerable populations to protect their wishes, safety and care while navigating healthcare, family dynamics and more.


Individual Therapist

I work closely with adults between ages

18 -100 to work towards mental wellness and health. I use a strengths based approach and walk along side clients as they pursue their desired changes and outcomes.


Areas of focus:


Life changes and transitions

Chronic or terminal illness and navigation.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy





Together with clients and families I am available for consultation.  Often these visits are geared toward families dealing with an elderly person or a chronic illness.  I use innovation and experience to assist families and clients in achieving comfort and understanding.

About me
My Approach

I work with clients to promote positive and desired changes. I challenge clients in their thinking patterns, use positive regard and reflective listening and am dedicated to meeting a client "where they are" in their change process.  I promote tools and techniques for managing anxiety in the clients environment and work together to build confidence in the skills.  

Most insurance is accepted.


I am a licensed clinical social worker, governed by the Oregon State Board of Social Workers and am an active member of the NASW.  

I have spent years working with hospice patients and their families.  I have worked to integrate terminal diagnosis and grief in to the lives of those left behind as well as the patient.  I have worked with grief and life transitions. 

I am originally from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and have lived in Central Oregon since 2005. I will continue to support my community whenever and however I am able.

Getting Help

Reaching out for help and support can be scary.  I am here to ease that discomfort.  I take most insurances and am available to provide virtual/Telehealth during this uncertain time.  If I am not the best fit for you or the challenge you face, I will connect you with another provider.

Working with Sarah helped me discover and maintain the skills I needed to manage my anxiety.  Sarah's method of connection and support showed me I was living with suffering that was not healthy and offered me a path to health and success.
