Sarah Brothwell, LMHC
Hello there! My name is Sarah Brothwell and I am excited to help you on your path. I graduated from the University of Buffalo in 2014, with my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. In 2022, I obtained a certification in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy from Naropa University. My primary focus is on treating trauma and subsequent mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, attachment concerns and addictive behaviors.
I take a person-centered approach to working with clients, meaning that I partner with you to help you understand yourself and navigate life’s many challenges. I believe that the true work of a therapist is to facilitate one’s relationship with their own inner healing intelligence. I utilize a variety of modalities, including EMDR, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, mindfulness and IFS.
Clients can expect to come away from a session feeling seen, heard, and connected with. My hope is that clients feel safe enough to meet the fear and hurt that exists within each of us. Through the process of allowing love to come into contact with fear, we are able to transform our wounds into wisdom and gain a greater understanding of ourselves and others. My hope is that this will spark insight and motivation into actions that can be taken to overcome personal challenges.
When we show up with bravery and vulnerability to meet what is here within us, in this moment, we are able to heal the wounds that create the illusion of separateness. The wounds that quietly say to us, “You are not enough.” The wounds that leave us longing for more- more love, more success, more wealth, more experiences, more of anything to keep the suffering at bay. When we are able to meet this suffering, we are able to reclaim the connection to ourselves, others, and what we determine to be sacred. We learn that we are enough, others are enough, and that we no longer need to look outside of ourselves for more. It is through this process of reconnection that we liberate ourselves, our communities, and the natural world.
