While working toward and after obtaining my Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology in New York City, Sara realized that working within a community to help individuals heal was the focus of her passion. She initially worked with disenfranchised and undomiciled women to regain their stability, confidence, and independence. Many of these women were victims of domestic violence and/or street crime. Sara continued to work with individuals who were struggling to be effective within their communities, advocating for them in court and coordinating appropriate treatment. Since 2005, she has specialized in working with adolescents with histories of trauma to address their attachment, mood, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Most recently, she has focused on treating adolescents and adults with acute, chronic, and complex trauma with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
