She is passionate about helping and supporting families to enrich their relationships. She is deeply committed to her client’s growth.

Sarah’s own therapeutic process has been invaluable to her as a person and therapist. Learning a lot of the techniques from the inside out has given her true confidence in their lasting efficacy. Sarah suffered traumatic loss early in life, and was called to find healthy ways to heal the wounds left. Therapy taught her to access more connection with others, understand herself more deeply, and shine despite life’s inevitable difficulties. She has grown to love the journey of her life even on the more difficult days. She has found access to life’s richness inside of these challenges and complexities.
Sarah lives in Marin County with her husband (who was actually born with the last name Foxfire) and their two daughters. She teaches yoga too!
