Hi, I'm Sarah.

I empower couples and individuals to overcome personal obstacles to improve their relationships using clinically tested and evidenced-based interventions.  My style is collaborative, supportive, and compassionate.  Together, we will develop purposeful goals that will produce positive results.

I have a master’s degree in Social Work from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. In 2010 I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and began providing individual and couples counseling.


Sarah practices at the Champaign location.
