Becky provides a person-centered somatic approach to working with anxiety, depression, coping with stress, difficulties with relationships, and traumatic experiences.

Sara Megeed

Sara is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate, and works with adolescents and adults of all identities who are dealing with the impacts of trauma. Trauma can have many profound impacts on a person's life and can make it difficult to connect with others and enjoy the things that matter the most. Additionally, trauma can create feelings of shame, guilt, depression, anxiety, and grief and lead to behavioral concerns as a means of surviving. Sara believes that shame and defenses diminish in safe spaces, and hopes to create an environment that is conducive to healing.

 

Sara seeks to create a trusting therapeutic relationship to help you feel supported in doing the hard work. Her approach is person-centered and combines different evidence-based practices to meet each client's individual needs. 

 

Therapy is not an easy process, but Sara hopes to help you feel empowered and challenged to meet your goals in a safe environment. You are the expert of your life, and Sara will go at the pace that you feel comfortable. If you are ready, she would love the opportunity to walk alongside you on your healing journey.
