she/ her/ hers
Hi! I'm Sara. I am the founder of Greenhouse Psychotherapy. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in DC and Maryland specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, & adjustment issues.
I work with adolescent and adult clients of all genders, with a special interest in treating neurodivergent college students and young adults. I am a relational, collaborative provider and my go-to approaches include IFS, DBT and ACT. When working with me clients can expect a combination of compassionate challenging, emotional attunement, a healthy dose of laughter, and a bit of irreverence.
In my free time, I specialize in petting strangers' dogs and buying way too many plants.
I founded Greenhouse Psychotherapy with the belief that clients deserve individualized, personal care from providers they connect with on a human level. I don't want clients to feel like just another number at my practice; I want them to feel like we have an authentic personal relationship. For this reason, at Greenhouse we maintain smaller caseloads than most clinicians in order to give each client the individualized attention they deserve.
I am passionate about my work and I enjoy working with clients who are seeking counseling because they want to grow. I've found that my clients thrive when provided with a safe, supportive environment tailored to their needs. In that sense, I believe therapy functions much like a greenhouse; that is, it provides optimal conditions for accelerated growth.
