She began her professional career by implementing the first Social Services Unit at Palatine Police Department.

Sarah works with ages 4 and older.
She has volunteered extensively in churches, coaching and mentoring women of all ages in issues such as family, personal relationships, spiritual growth, church conflict, and prayer.
Sarah engages all counseling from a Christian perspective. She believes that God wants to bring healing to any area that holds one back from experiencing life to the full and reflecting God's glory the way they are meant to. Her desire is to help others find freedom from thoughts, behaviors, and wounds that prohibit them from experiencing the joy, peace, and contentment that God promises. She considers it a joy and privilege to walk alongside those desiring to heal.
Sarah is married and has four children ranging from elementary age to early twenties.
