Meet Dr. Sara Owen
My approach is motivated by my experience that positive change is possible, especially given the right kind of help. I believe that even in difficult circumstances, individuals can build awareness and develop skills that can change their lives for the better.
I strive to create a therapeutic experience unique to the individuals I work with. I am experienced at bridging evidence-based approaches to individual needs. I work collaboratively with clients to alleviate emotional distress, promote self-investigation and foster movement toward a more meaningful life. The process of change is both challenging and rewarding – I offer a nonjudgmental, supportive stance, grounded in clinical expertise, to aid in this process.
I have extensive experience working with couples. I am certified in the most scientifically-backed approaches to helping couples, including Gottman levels 1, 2 and 3, Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint therapy. I assist couples in creating healthier relationships by exploring stories, increasing emotional awareness and teaching effective communication techniques, all in the service of restored understanding and increased intimacy.
