Meet Sarah G. Campbell, LMHC, CMHS, MHP…
Sarah is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School. She has worked as a clinician in community mental health and private clinics, in addition to being a one-on-one behavioral coach in both elementary and middle school settings.
Sarah has experience helping children, adolescents, adults, and couples understand and create solutions for issues including: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, DMDD, parent coaching, relationship issues, emotion dysregulation, conflict resolution, behavioral challenges and social skills deficits.
Sarah says, “Most often clients (or parents of clients) come to
counseling with a tension—something isn’t working or doesn't make sense or hurts too much or is affecting core areas of life too
seriously to ignore anymore. My desire for every client is that they
finish our work more empowered to understand and care for their own feelings, more confident to problem solve conflict and self-advocate, strengthened to more fully experience both vulnerability and success, and with an understanding of how they relate to the world that allows them to have the relationships they crave and establish the boundaries they need to thrive.”
Sarah utilizes multiple treatment modalities to offer more varied and creative interventions. Therapy dog Khaleesi is available for emotion regulation, the sandtray for processing conflicts or stories without words, and games/visual resources to teach coping and emotion regulation skills based on neurological research. She uses Motivational Interviewing to assess and explore client desire for change and what needs are being met by remaining the same. CBT gives Sarah language to build client awareness as to how their actions were decided in the moment they interpreted the situation and allowing imagination for other interpretations and outcomes. Psychodynamic talk therapy is her primary treatment modality, but Sarah believes the true language of therapy is presence because we are transformed by an authentic encounter with another person.
