Sarah Elkins, MA, LPC-R, NCC

Do you feel anxious and overwhelmed easily? Do you frequently struggle with racing thoughts, depression, and feelings of disconnectedness? Are you having difficulty maintaining and engaging in meaningful, healthy relationships? Do you experience physical sensations such as muscle tension, fatigue, or pain? Are these challenges affecting your daily life and well-being?

What can you expect from our sessions?

I provide a safe, warm, and comfortable space for continued personal growth and development. For years I have had the privilege to use my training, skills, and experience to effect change in the lives of the diverse clients I serve. As my client, you will receive tailored, individualized care that fits your unique needs. A collaborative approach to counseling that centers on you being the expert in your life is central to our work together. As your counselor, I am committed to providing a safe and secure environment for you to realize your inner power that will propel you toward lasting transformation.

As a result of our work together, you will have more knowledge, power, and skills to work through difficulties. I have extensive experience in various settings working with adults, adolescents, and children who struggle with the impact of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, Depression, and Personality Disorders. I am passionate about working with neurodiverse clients, such as those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I am passionate about working alongside members of disadvantaged groups such as women,  people of color, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities.

Why did I decide to become a therapist?

I believe everyone possesses unique and powerful gifts that create a purpose-driven life. From a young age, I felt called toward a career in helping and advocating for others. I started my career as a social worker gaining my Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Liberty University to reach as many people as possible using my unique gifts of helping and providing a safe space for those in need. Feeling limited in reaching and serving others, I furthered my education and training by graduating with my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University. With my professional experience and knowledge, I consider it a privilege to use my skills to help others access their inner power to create a peaceful life.
