Sara White, LCSW
I’m happy to partner with you wherever you are on your journey. Although change is a natural part of our lives, it’s still often tough, especially if you struggle with depression or anxiety – or both. Whether you’re facing transition within your professional life, from college into career, making your way towards graduation, or are experiencing challenges or changes within your relationship, you don’t have to do it alone.
If you desire help in addiction recovery, we can work together to address problems like stress or grief, which exacerbate addiction, and develop life management skills to create a long-term plan for recovery.
Another focus of mine is family and youth well-being. Adolescence brings out complex emotions that often result in low self-esteem, poor academic performance, or disruptive behavior. I will support you and your child in making sense of these difficult emotions and strive to help your child develop a healthy sense of self.
After graduating from the University of Utah in 2009, I interned at the Children’s Center and worked at U of U through the Assessment and Referral Services program, which provides high quality assessments and referrals to individuals with potential substance misuse problems. For the last few years I’ve also served at Primary Children’s Hospital, where I support children and their families as a Crisis Worker.
I like to spend my free time trying new recipes, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family. I’m staying busy this year gardening and cooking with friends.
