Sarah Mathews

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Being human can be a vulnerable experience that doesn’t always have clear directions or a road map. It can be beautiful, joy-filled, challenging, confusing, simple, complex and sometimes downright painful!

Being human can be a vulnerable experience that doesn’t always have clear directions or a road map. It can be beautiful, joy-filled, challenging, confusing, simple, complex and sometimes downright painful! We all have a deep desire to thrive in our own unique human expression and to be accepted, valued, and loved fully. If only it were that easy! Most of us have had experiences or relationships that alter our sense of self and can make relationships, the outside world, and our internal world a confusing, lonely, or unsafe place.

I value your journey and am dedicated to seeing you and being with you as you are while also serving as a support person to help you explore and navigate your experiences. There isn’t always an answer and life is constantly changing. However, it is possible to heal wounds, develop new skills, and increase compassion in a way that can help navigate the complexity of relationships and to move towards feeling empowered in your authentic self.

I am a gentle, open minded, and light hearted therapist while also having the ability to be with you in the dark and heavy stuff. I specialize in high sensitivity (highly sensitive people), anxiety, relationships, and sexuality. I often utilize Transpersonal Psychology theory, Psychosynthesis, Internal Family Systems/Systems theory, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and mindfulness. I value spirituality, intuition, inner wisdom, and can speak “new age” language with you. I am dedicated to practicing compassion, am LGBTQIA+ affirmative, work with various relationship and sexual preferences, and strive to be culturally sensitive.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
