Master of Science in Marriage and Family
Sarah is an ordained minister and member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
She graduated from East Carolina University in 2014 with an MS in Marriage and Family Therapy. She completed internships in an outpatient clinic and family medicine center for couples, families, and individuals. She has also worked as a Multisystemic Therapy provider/supervisor and completed coursework at Southeastern Seminary. In addition, Sarah is a Prepare/Enrich certified facilitator for marital and premarital counseling.
Sarah values how each human being was created in the image of God, seeking to meet each client where they are and affirm their value and worth. She believes every client has a story, and each story is part of a greater narrative showcasing what God has done, is doing, and will do until the day Christ returns. Sarah’s goal is to facilitate an environment of Christ-like empathy where clients feel seen and heard as they share their burdens and process the brokenness in their lives.
Sarah views biblical counseling as an opportunity to incorporate God’s word and Gospel hope into the process of restoration. She also utilizes a systems therapy lens to take a holistic approach and honor how God created us to be biological, emotional, social, and spiritual beings. She believes restoration can look like feeling less stuck, growing in personal responsibility, and more vulnerably connecting with self and others - all while deepening an identity rooted in Christ. Sarah specializes in working with adult women and her scope of practice includes, but is not limited to, the following areas: biblically based counseling, anxiety, depression, betrayal trauma, adjustment disorders, family of origin issues, and dysfunctional families.
Sarah enjoys reading, spending time with friends, and baking. She has been an active member of her church community since she moved to the area in 2012. She and her husband Casey have been married since 2018 and have one son.
