Sarah is a psychologist at OpenUp. Her main focus is to build a good relationship and collaborate on your goals and growth. She is empathetic and dynamic and will make you work but will always be on the sidelines to support you.
Sarah will reinforce your self-compassion and raise your awareness of the patterns that are hindering your growth including stress, relationships, sleep, transitions or help you finding more peace. In the sessions, she will mainly use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with influences of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Schema Therapy (ST) focusing on healthier skill building, rewiring thought patterns and identifying emotional blockages.

She also frequently listens to inspiring podcasts, reads interesting book or has a conversation with a loved one.
