Sarah Spencer, LMSW
Sarah Spencer, LMSW, specializes in individual therapy services for children, adolescents, and young adults ages 10 to 25. She holds a master's degree in clinical social work with a focus in behavioral health from the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
Sarah draws from psychodynamic, narrative, attachment-based, and Acceptance and Commitment therapy, along with aspects of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), to help clients build insight, develop coping skills, and find solutions. She believes understanding our own past and how it shapes our attachment, our relationships with ourselves and others, self-acceptance, and communication are all key to finding peace and purpose in life.
Sarah believes that all clients deserve respect and has an awareness of systemic and societal factors that can affect mental health and wellbeing. She is neurodiversity affirming and welcoming of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship and family structures. Sarah has worked with clients of many different backgrounds, race, and ethnicities, and is sensitive and open to all. She has a laid-back, interactive style and tries to create an environment where clients can express what they truly think and feel.
Sarah has provided services to clients dealing with challenges associated with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, gender identity, ADHD, autism, self-harm, and suicidal ideation.
