MY APPROACH TO THERAPY

...as your comrade in rebellion

Texas Therapy Houston Counselor

What you can expect from me:

  • Insight

  • Alternative perspectives

  • Collaboration

  • Transparency & openness 

  • Dependability

  • Flexibility

  • Boundaries 

  • Acceptance

Creating a strong therapist-client alliance is of utmost importance to me. My goal is to create a space where genuine, vulnerable human connections can thrive. My approach to therapy is rooted in compassion and a focus on your strengths. I believe in delivering honest, straightforward guidance that challenges you to gain insight and take meaningful action. You're not alone in your journey; I'm here to walk alongside you as we explore the vast depths and infinite meanings of the human experience, with all its beauty, complexity, and moments of suffering. 

Since every person is unique, I tailor my approach by drawing from various theoretical frameworks. This allows me to craft a therapy experience that is specifically designed to meet your individual needs. 

  • Do you take insurance?
    Short answer: I do not participate with any insurance companies. If you have out-of-network coverage, you may qualify for possible reimbursement. In this case, I can provide you with the necessary paperwork to submit to your insurance provider. - Longer answer, for those curious: My decision not to accept insurance is rooted in my commitment to providing the best possible care for my clients. By opting for a private pay model, I can offer unique advantages that directly benefit you: 1. Personalized Treatment: Without insurance restrictions, I have the flexibility to tailor your therapy to your specific needs, allowing for more effective and individualized treatment plans. 2. Enhanced Privacy: By not involving insurance companies, I can maintain a higher level of privacy and confidentiality, ensuring that your personal information remains secure and protected. 3. Focus on Your Well-being: Without the administrative burdens of insurance, I can dedicate more time and attention to your care, resulting in longer session times, increased availability, and a greater focus on your needs and goals. 4. Pricing Transparency: My fees are based on the value I provide and my expertise, allowing me to set fair and transparent pricing that aligns with the quality of care you receive. By choosing not to accept insurance, I prioritize your best interests and ensure that your therapy experience is centered on your unique needs and goals. I believe that this approach allows me to provide you with the highest standard of care.
  • Session rates & sliding scale...
    Individual therapy sessions, lasting 45-50 minutes, are available for $160. I understand that financial circumstances can vary, which is why I also offer sliding scale fees. If the standard fee is not feasible for you, simply provide proof of household income and the number of dependents, and we can determine a discounted rate that suits your situation. To begin your therapeutic journey, I invite you to schedule a complimentary 15-minute initial consultation, where we can discuss your needs and goals. This consultation serves as an opportunity for us to connect and determine if we are a good fit for working together.
  • How do I know if therapy is right for me?
    Therapy can be beneficial for individuals facing various challenges, such as mental health concerns, relationship issues, or life transitions. It can also help anyone simply seeking personal growth, greater self-awareness, or a deeper connection to themselves and others. Therapy is a designated space for you to explore yourself and your world. If you're concerned that therapy feels indulgent or selfish, it's important to consider the ripple effect it can have on your life. The personal growth and development you experience in therapy will naturally extend to benefit the people around you and the work you engage in. By prioritizing your well-being and creating space for your needs, you are actually engaging in an act of service to both yourself and others. Being present with yourself allows you to show up more fully and authentically in your relationships and contributions, fostering a positive impact on those around you.
  • What if I'm unsure about the therapist or therapy approach?
    I understand the importance of finding the right match; it's important to find a therapist you feel comfortable and connected with. You can schedule an initial consultation or phone call to discuss your concerns and determine if it feels like a good fit. If we're already working together and uncertainty arises, I will support you in bringing that up with me. I welcome conversations about our relationship, my approach, and the therapy process because it's an opportunity to course-correct, deepen our work, or help you explore your next right move and alternative resources even if it means ending therapy together.
  • What can I expect in a therapy session?
    Therapy sessions typically involve open and confidential conversations about whatever problems or concerns you're having. It's ok to cry. It's also ok to laugh! All emotions are welcome. My intent is to listen attentively, provide support, and help you navigate your concerns. In a first session, I'll have a lot more questions typically because I want to build a foundation for us to work from. I'll ask about your childhood, significant events and relationships, your work and living situation, etc. Sometimes this intake process takes several sessions simply because 50 minutes isn't really enough to cover a person's total life experiences! My approach is to "go with the flow and keep the flow going" so to speak, and I rely on my intuition a good deal, which I try to share openly as an opportunity to clarify and build perspective. I may offer particular tools and homework when it seems appropriate or when you ask for it specifically. As therapy progresses, I may check in with you about how the process is going and revisit your purpose for therapy to ensure we're still on track. It's important to me that you feel able to talk about your feelings and experiences openly, even (and especially) when they pertain to me and our work together. There may be times we discuss our relationship as client and therapist because the "here and now" interactions in therapy can give you a window into your patterns that exist outside of therapy.
  • How often and for how long do I come to therapy?
    Typically sessions are scheduled on a weekly or biweekly basis. Consistency and regularity in attendance can contribute to better progress and outcomes. The duration of therapy can vary depending on individual needs and goals. It can range from a few sessions to several months or even longer. This is something that can be discussed and decided upon collaboratively.

Having known her for over a decade, I can confidently say Sarah is the kind of person you want in your corner. Sarah is a fierce protector of animals, which may be the best you can say about someone. She’s thoughtful, compassionate, and direct. She’s smart and humble, and conversations with her leave me feeling inspired, curious, and brave. I can enthusiastically recommend Sarah as a therapist.
