Sarah is a counseling intern under the direct supervision of Andrew Jovanovich MA, LPC . She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Services from Columbia College and is continuing her education at Webster University to receive her Master of Arts in Professional Counseling with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She is a student member of the American Counseling Association, a member of the International Honor Society of Professional Counselors known as Chi Sigma Iota, and has obtained a Psychological First Aid (PFA) certificate.
Sarah has ten years of experience working with individuals of various populations to include individuals with developmental disabilities, the geriatric community, and has over two years of experience working with children and families in the foster care and family court systems. As we build our therapeutic alliance together, Sarah endeavors to create a safe and open space that is a non-judgmental as well as comfortable environment for her clients. Sarah is compassionate, open minded, and willing to walk alongside her client's path while demonstrating accurate empathy. Since she believes that there is not a one-size fits all solution, she will utilize a person-centered therapeutic approach to assist each individual through their own unique journey. John Maxwell once said "Change is inevitable, growth is optional." Sarah wants her clients to understand and believe in their potential for growth, and for her clients to feel empowered to use their voice.
