Get to Know Me...
Sara Kind, MS, LPC, LMFT
I specialize in child and family work, love helping parents find new ideas, and enjoy bringing couples and partners closer together. I help people find the change and progress they want to achieve.
My approach to therapy is strengths-based and grounded in family systems theory. That means I believe that you are the expert on being yourself. I also believe your current situation is impacted by your relationships and those around you. Creating lasting change requires us to look beyond ourselves and to consider the influence of all of the relational systems with which we interact (partners, other family members, friends, neighborhoods, and communities). I don't "fix" you or your identified problems because I believe you already have many strengths and the inherent ability to change and grow. Instead, I collaborate with you to wonder, explore, and find more positive interactions and experiences. It is my role to empower you to create change as defined by you, and to help you reach your full potential. I listen carefully to assess your needs, and we will work together to clarify your goals and find ways you can achieve emotional well-being and increased satisfaction. I will challenge you to understand yourself, learn new strategies, and change patterns that are getting in your way. My goal is to help you acquire and fine tune skills and strategies for being your best self.
My style is an integrated approach using systemic therapeutic techniques to help you achieve emotional growth and connection within your relationships. You can expect our work together to be goal-directed and individualized to your needs. I will provide an atmosphere of acceptance, warmth, and genuineness. You provide yourself and motivation to create change.
I am LGBTQ affirmative and sex positive. I strive to approach all of my interactions with cultural humility, and I am committed to providing trauma-informed care.
I want you to reach your therapy goals, and this is most likely to happen when you have a good match with a therapist. I offer free phone consultations prior to our first meeting to discuss your needs, and to determine if you think we will be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you soon! -Sara Kind, MS, LPC, LMFT
"Peace. It doesn't mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." -Unknown
