Sarah Fink, M.Ed., Ed.S.
Sarah is known for unprecedented responsiveness and a warm and inviting smile. She is easy to talk to, but also gets “real” when need be. She has worked with kids, adolescents, adults, and families for over 5 years providing home-based therapy and parent coaching, working with families with a child diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and has experience with the early identification of Autism Spectrum Disorder. She has honed her basic skills treating depression and anxiety, but also enjoys helping people through life-transitions (aka, “girl, *^%# that job!”) and working out issues you may or may not have with your mother-in-law.
Sarah completed her undergraduate degree at Georgia State University, received her Master's of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Clemson University, and is a Mental Health Counselor with her license pending in Massachusetts.
Along with her background in mental health and psychology, Sarah has also completed a cosmetology program, which further informs her passion for self-care, attention to detail, and the pride and satisfaction that comes with taking care of yourself physically, as well as emotionally. Sarah knows taking the first step to find a therapist isn't easy and doesn't take that show of strength lightly, or the fact that you chose her for granted!
She loves using a collaborative approach to therapy; that is, she wants to work with individuals (and their families when appropriate) to discover strengths, develop goals, and process needs as a team. Sarah knows that you are the expert on your own life experience, and believes what she brings to the table are the tools to help you cultivate the happiness and success that is already within you! With her sense of humor, respect for her clients, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to see them succeed, Sarah strives to create a warm and inviting place for clients to be honest with themselves, while simultaneously growing and flourishing.
When she's not in the PSYCHē office, Sarah thoroughly enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling to new places, finding new podcasts, cooking, and trying to convince her boyfriend they need a Golden Retriever puppy. Sarah also loves coffee, dark chocolate, any kind of baby animal, home decorating, and visiting any kind of body of water, big or small.
