Education & Experience

Sarah attended Texas A&M University where she earned her BA in sociology and communication. Prior to beginning a career in mental health, Sarah worked for five years as a director at Camp Ozark out of Houston. During that time, she began to recognize a prompting from the Lord to pursue counseling after working closing with youth and college students. Sarah moved to Denver and completed her Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Denver Seminary. Following graduate school, Sarah counseled at a domestic violence and substance abuse treatment center for offenders, providing group and individual therapy.

Sarah desires to cultivate a space where broken people can feel free to explore their shame, insecurity and fractured identities without fear, with the hope of drawing them closer to the only true healer- Christ. She is passionate about helping those who struggle to believe they have a chance at healing to see the redemptive freedom that Christ offers. Identity development is one of the core concepts that has shaped and influenced her counseling approach.

Currently, Sarah is an LPC-Intern under the supervision of Shanda Anderson, LPC-S
