WELCOME

 
 
Meet Sarah Rodgers, MA, LMFT, RDT. Sarah has a background as an actor and theater educator. It was her passion for the cathartic power of self-expression that led her to psychology and to studying the application of creative forms for therapeutic means. She believes we could all use little more fun and playfulness in our lives, and healing is only enhanced by creative thinking and a touch of humor. 

SUPPORT 


Sarah is particularly passionate about empowering women and young adults to live their best lives and has specific experience with:
 

   Women's Issues

  • healthy boundaries
  • work-life balance
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationships

 


   Teens 
  • addiction
  • trauma
  • depression
  • self-esteem
  • school issues

 


 Families
  • communication skills
  • blended families
  • step-parenting
  • conflict

   


Couples
  • conflict
  • disconnection
  • trust
  • communication
  • goals and teamwork 


 
Sarah believes every client is the expert on themselves and encourages clients' active participation in order to achieve change, sometimes offering homework, such as journaling, meditation, or other supportive practices. When working with clients, Sarah is, above all, an individualist - she tailors her approach to each unique person. Sarah brings a relaxed and intuitive tone to the therapy room. She is compassionate, playful, and also direct and challenging. 
 
As for her clinical approach, Sarah is eclectic, often drawing on concepts including:
  • Mindfulness
  • DBT (Dialectial Behavior Therapy)
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
  • Psychodynamic
  • Narrative
  • Family Systems

 
Sarah also utilizes Art and Drama Therapy techniques, which encourage playfulness, a different perspective, and mind-body processing and integration. 

WHY CREATIVE ARTS? 


Creative therapies access the intuitive and instinctive, feeling parts of our brains and can be particularly effective for circumventing our "same old" stories and habits and accessing something new in order to create healing. These approaches require zero creative aptitude or experience, only an open mind and a willingness to try. Sarah believes strongly in the cathartic, supportive effects of Drama and Art Therapy and would love to share it with you.
