Sarah Parks-Pittman, LMSW, CHT
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Certified Hakomi Therapist
I believe that it is every person’s birthright to live a life full of meaning, joy and fulfillment.
My counseling practice is informed by Hakomi and its principle of mindfulness, unity, body-mind connection, non-violence and organicity. Hakomi has been described as “assisted self-study”. It is an experiential type of psychotherapy that encourages individuals to enter into mindfulness to help access present moment experiences, which leads to insight, healing and integration. It is a way of cultivating conscious self-compassion and transforming patterns of perception and behavior that no longer serve.
Other models which inform my counseling approach include person-centered, humanistic, strengths-based, trauma informed, depth psychology and cognitive behavioral. We will work collaboratively to determine the therapeutic approach that best suits your needs and preferences.
With more than seven years in the mental health field, I am an experienced child and family therapist as well as group facilitator. My work is inspired by each individual client’s unique potential for wholeness. I particularly enjoy working with couples and individuals on issues of gender, sexuality, relationships, intimacy, spirituality, wellness and authenticity. I am LGBTQIA+ friendly and aware. My other areas of competence include anxiety, depression, grief, and adjustment to life transitions. I look forward to assisting you on your personal journey of healing and self-discovery!
