Sarah Albert, Therapist

(LAC)

I see things through an attachment lens. I believe we all yearn for healthy attachments and start to feel in a disarray when those attachments and attachment opportunities go awry. Whether those disconnections happen in our relationships with others or ourselves, in our work surroundings, or in our communities they can have a big impact on our well-being. I strive to work as a team to highlight those attachment opportunities and guide you through ways of optimizing moments of growth that lead to reconnection.

I graduated with my bachelor’s in psychology from the University of Central Arkansas in 2015. I went on to obtain my master’s in clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in play therapy from John Brown University in 2018. I have been licensed as a Licensed Associate Counselor since February 2019. Throughout my experience as a counselor I have had the privilege of working with diverse populations from children, families, and adults working through day-to-day issues to working with adults with serious mental illnesses. I have received various trainings directed at working with children and their families including child-centered play therapy, child-parent relationship therapy, and level one training in Theraplay. Additionally, I have training in sandtray therapy.

When I am not in the office witnessing amazing change happen, I’m usually trying to spend as much time in the sun with my family as I can. If the sun is not shining, then I am probably enjoying some couch-potato time with my cat, Angela, curled in my lap while I try to convince my basset hound, Kevin, to keep his volume down.
