MC, Registered Psychologist

***Sara is accepting new clients!***

I love what I get to do as a psychologist and I feel very honored to have the opportunity to connect with you in such a meaningful way. My primary goal when working with clients is to have them feel safe, heard, and most of all, understood. I strive to create a comfortable therapeutic environment where we will use our time to reflect on what is important to you in an effort to address desired change in your life. I believe that the counselling journey, at its heart, is about change. This journey is very personal and can often be scary, therefore I will help you move towards your personal goals at your pace and one step at a time. 

The approach I take is personable, structured, and practical. At times you may need our time to simply talk and process. At other times it may be more beneficial if we use our time to set goals, stay on track, and actively work on your ideas, convictions, and fears. I often invite my clients to reflect on how things are progressing and find ways to ensure we are always moving forward towards success.

In my practice, I most often utilize person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, and emotion-based work, including Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). Additionally, I also offer coaching aimed at developing assertiveness, boundary setting, and conflict resolution. I have experience working with individuals, adolescents, groups, families, and couples. I am passionate about impacting a family unit through the important work of couples counselling. My primary goals with couples counselling include creating better communication, practicing positive conflict resolution, and staying connected so couples may thrive in and out of their relationship. 

I am a Registered Psychologist and have called Calgary home since early childhood. Growing up for me was a journey of combining 2 different cultures and forming a deeper understanding of my true self and cultural identity. I attended my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Calgary followed by my Masters of Counselling at City University.

The quote, “Listening not to simply respond but listening to understand “, has fueled my passion for my work since I began my education in counselling. I feel honoured and blessed to be a part of your journey and I look forward to working with you to deepen your self-knowledge and help create the changes you want to see.
