  • About Me

    Sarah J Thompson



    I love what I do because its meaningful and transformative. I have the privilege of meeting so many interesting, unique, and amazing people. When it comes to clientele, I enjoy working with, and most drawn to, those who are at a crossroads in life and are wanting to make a change. My approach to therapy is gradual and systematic – I will meet you where you are – but there is also a method to what we are doing. We’re not just winging it!

    I am genuine, personable, and laid back. I tend to speak rather casually and want to know how you are doing and listen to your experiences. I want to talk about the hard stuff and am also not afraid of going there with you. I am very transparent, love to laugh and to keep it real with you. I am an authentic, curious and compassionate human being and I feel the sometimes raw emotions with you. I want to help you heal, rather then simply teach you skills – we can do that too – but real change goes beyond the skills!​

    Initially drawn to the understanding of how human action and consciousness both shape and are shaped by cultural and social structures, I decided to pursue my BS in Sociology from Northeastern University. After working in both residential and school settings as a Direct Care Counselor, I made the decision to further my education and obtained by M.Ed in Counseling from Winthrop University in 2009. I spent much of my time working with children and families as an Early Intervention Therapist. However, after having my kiddo, I made a shift and decided to focus my work and attention on adults. And I LOVE it!

    Witnessing individuals and couples inhabit their authentic selves and shift patterns that are no longer serving them is a joy! I feel privileged to help guide others in their own transformation.

    When I am not working, you will find me enjoying time with my family – which includes an adorable mutt named Buddy! My idea of a perfect scenario includes one with travel, food, music and lots of laughter.
