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.
In my free time, I specialize in petting dogs and buying way too many plants.
Sara is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Maryland and DC. She helps clients explore the complex feelings that accompany life changes, and navigate the stressors of day-to-day life. Sara works with adolescent and adult clients of all genders. She empowers clients to make choices consistent with a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Sara's counseling style is flexible, allowing her to tailor my interventions to meet the unique needs of each individual client. Her integrative approach includes elements of evidence-based practices, such as Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), combined with positive psychology and alternative interventions (primarily mindfulness and meditation). She celebrates body diversity and is a proud Health at Every Size® informed clinician.
Most importantly, Sara helps clients embrace their authentic selves (unapologetically)!
