For too long the stigma of starting therapy has been a barrier, a barrier that prevents folks from gaining access to a resource that every human deserves. And much to the contrary of this stigma, choosing to embark on a therapeutic journey is one of THE bravest and most loving acts of self-care that one can do.
In our work you will break free from a limited and disempowering approach that places the healer outside of you. Like a superpower you’ll learn how to hone the information being fed to you in every given moment, physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually to empower and inform your innate expertise from within.
Our minds play tricks on us all the time and those tricks or "stories" shape our reality, sometimes without us even knowing it. In our work you will learn how to recognize the script that has been written from the pain of the past and an attempt to control the unknown of the future with the language of worry, the “what if’s.” By practicing skills learned in Sarahpy, born from the evidenced-based practices of CBT and the ancient wisdom and philosophy of Yoga, you will learn how to practice the pause, put pen to paper, and write whatever damn story you would like!
No longer dictated by your old story, you will wake up to your true self and to your life as you are and how it really is rather than how the old script told you it "should" or "could" be. In your consciousness you will learn, with compassion and understanding, why the old story seemed so real, for so long. With respect for what your old tale taught you, tapped into your own unique and powerful wisdom, YOU will turn the page and set the power of your most woke and conscious self free.
Anyone who is suffering from self-doubt, worry, sadness, anxiety, fear, or pain. It will benefit anyone who is feeling stuck, limited, or overwhelmed by either an internal or external challenge.
It is for those who are looking to thrive, those who feel that there is something more, those who know that their fullest potential has yet to be achieved. It is for anyone who is ready to say “yes” to the possibility of now and “goodbye” to the limitation of the past.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 18 years of experience working with individuals, families, groups, and corporations. I am also a Certified Yoga and Fitness Instructor.
I have had the honor of teaching and facilitating workshops for lululemon, Away, Lettuce Entertain You, Ronan Capital, and numerous public and private school systems. I am also a proud lululemon ambassador where I lead the brand's first ever community facing ©Values and Goals virtual workshop, a distinctive and humbling role.
Finally, I have trained all over the world receiving an eclectic and unique compliment of therapeutic certifications that allow me to guide Meditation, Pranayama, Trauma Informed Yoga, and Reiki Healing at the Master's level.

The hardest part of a workout is putting your outfit on. Of all of my years teaching yoga and fitness I have never once heard someone say that they were sorry they came to class. The same is true for setting out on your therapeutic journey. Time and time again I hear stories of how it took months, even years for my clients to send that first email or text to get started. And once they began, often after just the first session, they could not imagine having never begun.
