Sarah is a bilingual psychotherapist with a passion for helping individuals and families thrive.

Sarah is a bilingual psychotherapist. She is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT #144213) and an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (APCC #15554) with a passion for helping individuals and families thrive. Born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq, Sarah brings a unique perspective to her practice, which she further developed after moving to Dallas, Texas, at the age of 17.

Sarah holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Permian Basin and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University.

With experience as a psychotherapist at Aviva Family and Children’s Services, Sarah has worked with diverse client populations, including children, adolescents, and families. Her therapeutic approach is eclectic, drawing on multiple theoretical orientations and techniques to tailor therapy to the individual needs and treatment goals of her clients. With that being said, she leans towards a person-centered humanistic lens, psychodynamic, and attachment-based, integrating mindfulness techniques for
holistic healing.

Sarah’s expertise encompasses supporting individuals and families dealing with PTSD, anxiety, depression, intergenerational trauma, and life transitions. Committed to providing culturally sensitive and trauma-informed care, Sarah creates a safe and supportive therapeutic environment where clients can explore their concerns and work toward positive change.

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys listening to music, learning new things, and staying connected with her siblings through video chats. You can often find her baking her famous chocolate-chip banana bread or breaking a sweat at a Cycling class on the weekends.
