Sarah Hayden, MA, ATR-BC, LPAT-S 

Sarah has over 15 years of experience helping individuals and families work thru depression, anxiety, family issues, addiction, trauma and grief. For the pastseveral years she has worked with adults affected by substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health issues. She uses a variety of therapeutic modalities in practice, including Motivational Interviewing, CBT, DBT, ACT, psychoeducation and art therapy. 
I am passionate about providing accessible and compassionate care in an environment that fosters feelings of safety and acceptance. I am inspired by the strength, perseverance and discovery that evolves from the therapeutic process my clients navigate, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to help support others through their unique journeys. So many of us struggle with feelings of shame, and the belief that we are ‘bad’ or not good enough. It is a misconception that shaming ourselves will motivate us to change. In fact, the opposite is true, because shame literally shuts down the part of our brain responsible for growth and change. Regardless of what brings someone to therapy initially, learning to practice self-compassion typically becomes an important part of the process.
