Sara loves helping teens and adults in our Valley City clinic and via telehealth. 


Originally from Minnesota, Sara has lived in Jamestown, ND for the last 11 years. For 25 years, Sara worked as a licensed cosmetologist and  made a career change after identifying and developing a desire to help people in a very different way. She completed her M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in April 2021 at the University of Mary. While focusing her work on adolescents and adults, Sara uses a wellness approach and focuses on the importance of  various aspects of the individual’s wellness such as physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, occupational, and more. Sara enjoys using various approaches depending on the needs of each individual and values getting to know each of them as a person. In practice, Sara enjoys using various techniques such as talk therapy, art therapy, psychoeducation, and others in a collaborative approach. In her spare time, Sara enjoys spending time with her family and friends, baking, camping, and hiking.
