Hello! I am Sarah Berger, LCSW/LICSW, a dedicated and compassionate therapist committed to supporting you on your path to emotional well-being and personal growth. I have had the privilege of guiding individuals through various challenges for over 20 years, helping each of them discover their inner strength and resilience. I have worked with people of all ages ranging from children to the elderly, with more focus devoted to those in their late teens to those in mid-life stage.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our initial session will include brief introductions, review of paperwork and discussion of current concerns with impact on functioning and background questions. This will allow us to determine our path for goal setting and future sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Since I have been a child, I have always said I want to help people and make a difference. Being a therapist is something I am passionate about, consistent client feedback I have been given is I am a great listener who is very empathetic and understanding. I truly care about clients I work with and will try to schedule extra sessions if needed and follow through with in-between session check-ins if discussed.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Primary method I use to help clients learn coping strategies and challenge negative or anxious thoughts clients identify. Discussing the correlation between thoughts, feelings and behaviors is very helpful for many clients as first step before skills building.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Skills building using mindfulness, progressive muscle relaxation, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation are a few of the tools that may be taught in sessions.

Motivational Interviewing

This can be helpful when clients are feeling "stuck" or ambivalent about making changes. Identifying outcomes and benefits for the change then creating steps to make the change.
