Sarah Pendergraft, LMSW, LCDC
Sarah works with adults healing from trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, mood disorders, and impulsive behaviors. Sarah has been researching trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder since 2013 and has experience working with the following therapeutic modalities: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), talk therapy, somatic techniques, mindfulness, and meditation. Sarah believes long-term growth comes from integrating fragmented parts of the self. These parts manifest in body language, biology, core beliefs, emotions, and behavioral patterns. Sarah takes a non-judgmental approach with creativity, curiosity, and compassion to help people bring the unconscious to light and reach a place of peaceful understanding.
She has completed Level One of Gottman training for couples counseling. She has also completed her externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an evidence-based therapy for couples. She is sex-positive and strives to create a non-judgmental environment for clients of all orientations and lifestyles.
