Sarah Tarshis, PhD (She/Her)

Clinical Social Worker

Sarah completed her MA in Social Work from New York University and her PhD from the University of Toronto.

Sarah believes in a strengths-based and collaborative approach to counseling that explores practical solutions towards change.

As a practitioner, researcher, and professor, Sarah knows there is no one-size-fits-all therapeutic intervention. She borrows from several theoretical and practice frameworks including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, psychodynamic, attachment, empowerment and intersectionality.

Sarah is particularly experienced in treating individuals who are challenged by depression, stress and anxiety, struggling in relationships, coping with loss and grief, or adjusting to other life transitions.

Sarah’s priority is to create a warm, engaging and non-judgmental environment so clients feel safe exploring their concerns.

Through the strength of the therapeutic relationship, she introduces clients to interventions that guide them and bring about both self-acceptance and change.
