          Dr. Saarah helped me open my beliefs to a new way of thinking and way of living. She is the first therapist to keep it completely real with me. I can’t say that my life is perfect now but I can say that I am a better person after having gone through this course of therapy.

                Anonymus

                Client

                Dr. Saarah helped me to not let the past define me and how to deal with the pain of my mental health issues. She helped me to realize the good things that do happen and to remember the things that are most important to me. She took the time to care and helped to build me back up when I felt broken. She encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and in the process brought me closer to my son. Now I feel confident in my ability to build positive memories with my family.

                  B.C

                  When I first came to see Dr. Saarah I was petrified. Now here I am almost 3 months later having gone through therapy that has changed my life.
