A Bit About Sara

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, ACT and EMDR.  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.

My trusted sidekick, Penelope, may join sessions from time-to-time when invited. Penelope is a pro cuddler for any dog lovers who request her company-- but don't worry-- she will happily honor the boundaries of those who prefer their space!
