Clinical Director, Therapist


As a native to the Shenandoah Valley and an official “townie,” I cannot imagine a world without college students. College is such a unique and often overwhelming time for students, they are faced with so many questions like: Who am I? What do I want to do? And where do I belong?  Read Full bio.

The world we live in provides ample opportunity to experience relational pain, confusing life experiences, and circumstances that expose growth areas and distortions in our perceptions.  I love the picture of our lives being a journey in which we face a variety of different seasons . . . winters of loss, stillness, and quiet reflection . . . spring times of new life and discovery . . . warm summers of growth . . . and autumns of harvests and the realization that life as we know it is coming to a close.  Read Full Bio.

I grew up in Philadelphia to Christian parents, and during elementary school we had numerous infant foster brothers and sisters in our home. My parents later adopted two children into our family. From the earliest moments of my memory, it was apparent how important childhood, family, and faith were in shaping our lives and our stories.  Read full bio.

I understand the importance of having a voice and the need to have a compassionate guide to help you navigate through the many changes and confusions of both growing up and reconciling with your past. My hope is that I can be the therapist I needed then to those who need it now. I want to provide a safe space for your voice, or the voice of your child, to be heard.  Read Full Bio.

Therapist, Resident in Counseling


Even though I have spent my entire life within the church and majority of my adult life in ministry, I felt like there was more that I could do to help the people around me. I have always been drawn to people who were hurting and desired to walk with them on their healing journeys. While working in the medical field and ministry, it became evident that people needed an outlet to share their feelings and work through their pain.  Read Full Bio.

*** Sarah is not taking new clients.

I grew up in Delaware and moved to Virginia at age 18. My journey to becoming a counselor began at James Madison University while I was working with and hearing the struggles of youth in the church I was attending. My wish was to not only hear about these struggles but to help do something about them- to speak truth into their wounds and give them the skills to bring about desired growth in their lives. Read full bio.
