Sarah (she/her/hers) joins GE Family Services as a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Intern from Colorado Christian University to work with children, teens, adults, and families who may be feeling stuck, particularly if facing grief or life transitions, and wanting to build resilience.
I hail from Michigan but lived in Portland, Oregon the half decade before moving to Anchorage in 2016. I have a B.S. in English from Central Michigan University (2007) and have been helping people find solutions in a variety of healthcare and nonprofit settings and roles since then. I have experience working with children and adults from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Some of the things I enjoy include adventuring with my dog and husband, reading good books, and spending time in nature (ideally on a bicycle or skis).
I am committed to helping people understand how their strengths can help them overcome the challenges of their lives. Sometimes this includes work to understand how the past affects your present. One size does not fit all, and I am dedicated to working with people in ways that work for them, in order to heal and flourish.
