Sara Micham, M.A., L.P.C.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” ~Maya Angelou Sara is a compassionate and caring counselor who prioritizes providing a safe space for people to share their stories. Her approach is one of respect and unconditional positive regard. Her desire is that people will feel heard and empowered to more successfully navigate through their struggles rather than fight against them or be reduced by them. Sara has been working with children, teenagers, adults, and families for over 15 years. Specific focus areas of her work are chemical dependency issues, trauma related concerns, attachment related issues, depression, anxiety, relational conflict, parent-child relationships, and adoption related concerns.

To meet the individual needs of clients, Sara utilizes a variety of interventions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Sara is trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR, as with most therapy approaches, focuses on the individual’s present concerns. The EMDR approach believes past emotionally-charged experiences are overly influencing your present emotions, sensations, and thoughts about yourself. EMDR processing helps break through the emotional blocks that are keeping you from living an adaptive, emotionally healthy life.
