Sarah Todey, MA
Welcome, my name is Sarah Todey and I am so excited that you are looking or considering therapy. There are many different approaches, techniques and theories in therapy and it can be a bit confusing. Here is my attempt to simplify my approach to therapy in a metaphor, living life is like going on one long big backpacking trip. Along this journey we will face challenges, unexpected setbacks and intense emotional experiences. We will meet people along the journey that may influence the paths we take and how we endure these challenges. These connections or experiences are not always good nor bad but things that we end up carrying in our backpack along our journey. We are not always taught how to carry the load or know when to let things go. Even worse, sometimes the map is vague or not ours, sometimes we get turned around. Let me offer a space for you to stop and rest, check the map, unpack, organize to reload or process and let go. Allowing you to be the most effective you, you can be. I believe authenticity and self expression are our map and compass on our journey.
My approach in psychotherapy is a holistic, Adlerian approach with an emphasis in mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions. I have been in the mental health field for the last five years working in crisis and care coordination roles, and most recently as a psychotherapist. I have worked with a variety of demographics from ages 6 to adult, in schools, in home, office, or via telehealth. Not all therapists are the same and I think it is important to find someone that makes you feel the most like you.Thank you again for taking the time to learn more about me. I would love to learn more about you and see if this is a good fit or if I can help you find the right therapist. Life is a journey, let’s help each other along the way.
