Why Therapy

Gains and Benefits:  It brings out the Best in YOU

Throughout their lifespan, humans face ever-increasing responsibility and an accumulation of losses and gains. These demands can pile up, and may overwhelm our coping, capsizing even well adjusted people if they do not have an inspired ally to support and guide them. Human fulfillment comes from staying open to life and to your own experience as you meet your full potential and share your unique gifts with the world. If you find yourself struggling with this monumental task—call upon Sara’s tremendous capacity and claim these essential life competencies:
