Sarah attended Duke University for her higher education. After graduating from Duke she went on to earn a Master’s degree in Social Work from New York University. Her high academic status led her to receive a License in Clinical Social Work in both New York and California. Sarah went on to pursue her dream of becoming a proficient psychotherapist by training with families and couples from the esteemed Ackerman Institute. After receiving a license in relational dynamics, Sarah went on to collaborate with Relational Trauma Project at the Ackerman Institute for Families and Couples.
