Sarah Philbeck

Founder, Sarah Philbeck, is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor who enjoys working with individuals, couples and families to uncover the source of their difficulties and increase their sense of wholeness and well-being and improve their connections to life and those they love.

There are times when the pressures of life become quite difficult to balance. Most people experience anxiety or depression at some stage in their life and find themselves needing to come to terms with challenges. Often these concerns can be resolved by the individual alone without seeking outside professional help. Sometimes, however these difficulties persist causing unhappiness at home, at work and in relationships.

Working with an experienced counselor in a safe, empathetic environment can greatly improve the following:

  • Becoming more able to feel, identify and express emotions
  • Learning about alternative ways to process and express emotions
  • Making connections (e.g. between feelings and behaviors or past and present experiences)
  • Gaining a greater understanding of behaviors
  • Re-evaluating perceptions and past experiences
  • An improvement in self-acceptance

No matter where you find yourself, I want to meet you there. It takes a great amount of courage and strength to vulnerably express your struggles, weaknesses, shame, and hardships with a total stranger.
