Sarah Fletcher, LMHCa
I believe in holistic wellness. Mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health are all vital aspects of wellness- when one area suffers, the others often do too. I consider you as a whole person rather than a diagnosis, and can support the underlying concerns rather than masking the symptoms. Each person possesses a unique set of strengths and skills that we will build upon to leave you feeling confident to be the driver of your wellness. I believe that you are the best expert on yourself. My goal is to be your ally and advocate in achieving your goals. With that in mind, therapy is often most effective when the client is actively engaged and communicative throughout the process.

Through a holistic and biopsychosocial spiritual lens, my goal is to promote your child’s specific balance of mind, body and spirit utilizing whole body supportive interventions, while honoring multiculturism and ancestral backgrounds. I utilize a strength-based, collaborative, approach with a focus on holistic intersectionality and awareness we are all influenced by our family of origin, cultural backgrounds and social networks. Your child may be facing challenging times in which talking with someone to work together to help identify concerns could be foundational to finding answers and building coping strategies and skills to support life-long resilience. My internship to was located in a private school working with preschool through 8th grade-aged children with a focus on emotional support related to both school and family and advocating for children of color. Previously, I spent countless hours volunteering in both pre- and elementary schools working with children individually and small groups as well as leadership roles in various art or community service groups affiliated with children.
