Sarah J. Person, LCSW-R
Psychotherapist with Over 15 Years Experience and Training
Psychotherapy can be an exciting, transformational journey that helps clients experience greater contentment, confidence, and the joy of being in their true inner self. I see myself as an expert but also as a guide, and I believe that each person’s personal truth lies within.
I have been fascinated by psychotherapy and the psyche since I was in high school, and consider myself very fortunate to do the work I do. Soon after I graduated from NYU School of Social Work, I took a course with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk (one of the foremost experts in the field) and that was the beginning of my lifelong learning about trauma and how to help survivors lose their shame and sense of responsibility so that they can lead fulfilling lives. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® (a powerful approach that integrates treatment of the body with mindfulness to heal trauma.) I am also trained in other trauma-focused therapies, psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral. I also have an extensive background in treating stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder), childhood sexual abuse, grief and relationship issues. I enjoy working with teens, young adults and adults. Most of all, I get the greatest satisfaction when people are able to use what they learn in therapy to make significant changes in themselves and their relationships, and experience greater happiness and satisfaction with their lives.
