My name is Sarah (she/her/hers) and I am a licensed mental health counselor and board certified music therapist in Minneapolis. I offer counseling, mental health therapy, music therapy or a blend of these options for individuals and families. You can schedule an initial appointment online (if I am accepting new clients, see below) or you can email or call to schedule a free 20 minute phone or video chat consult to see if I may be a good fit for your counseling or therapy needs.
All people are welcome in my practice and am committed to constant learning and dismantling of my own privilege and biases while actively engaging in anti-racist and anti-bigotry actions and conversations. I work from a HAES and body positivity perspective, working to eliminate the negative impact of white supremacy and the patriarchy on our self image and self worth.
Currently not accepting new clients, though you can be added to a waitlist, 1-2 months expected.

About Sarah & Sound Connections
You may be feeling overwhelmed, ungrounded, and confused. Therapy can help. I believe you have the capacity to process challenging aspects of your life to become more grounded, content and fulfilled. You need a safe space to unpack and process at a pace that feels right for you and this is what I strive to provide. You will be listened to, heard, and supported as we work together to achieve your goals for wellbeing and positive connections with others in your life. We can spend our session talking, drawing, journaling, creating, music-ing, using ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) techniques, and however we find best to address the goals you want to accomplish. In my therapy practice and in my personal life I am committed to being culturally humble, anti-racist, all-body positive, and an ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
ART - Accelerated Resolution Therapy
You may wish you incorporate music therapy in your sessions, and it is always your choice. In it's simplest form music therapy is finding ways to use music (listening, playing, writing, discussing) to achieve therapy goals. No music playing or performing experience is necessary.
