Sarah Rodgers, LMFT, RDT

I was an actress before becoming a therapist, so I have always valued emotion, expression, and the empathic connection we can have with another. I chose this path because I believe supporting others in growing towards their best selves can change the world, and I love doing that in such a personal, intuitive, and challenging setting. I truly enjoy sitting with clients and using my knowledge and skills to help them shape their own paths of change and wellness. Having the honor and privilege of supporting others in their growth and healing is incredibly rewarding and yields non-stop growth for me as well. I believe that we could all use little more fun and playfulness in our lives and that healing is only enhanced by creative thinking and a touch of humor.

I experienced both unsupportive and incredibly supportive supervision in my path towards licensure. I know the value of a good supervisor who can support you on your journey and how lost and discouraged one can feel without that support. I supervise because it's important to me that all up-and-coming therapists have the support they need and deserve.

I want to help new clinicians find their unique identities in this field. I hope new professionals feel they can shape their spaces in the professional world, find the work that really speaks to them, and make an impact by alleviating suffering and supporting growth in ways they find meaningful. It's also important to me that new professionals are able to do their own personal work and to hold their power in the world with awareness and responsibility, promoting wellness beyond the clinical room.
