Sarah Blanning, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I support people on their journey through grief and loss.
A traumatic experience can shatter our entire sense of self and we often feel like the world is spiraling around us. We have trouble managing our emotions – out of nowhere, we're anxious, afraid, sad, heartbroken, angry. We think we're losing our mind. Thoughts, memories, and images can intrude into your mind whether you are asleep or awake. Our relationships begin suffer. People in your life may not understand your trauma or loss and aren't able to give you the emotional support you so desperately want and need. You might feel like you have to "be strong" or "hold it together for everyone else in your life.
I specialize in trauma and grief of all kinds, particularly losses due to violence or suicide, trauma that affects intimate relationships, and childhood trauma that has influenced how we function as adults. I individualize all treatment based on your needs, and we may draw from a mix of CBT, relaxation, EMDR, and couples counseling.
I'm here to tell you that you’re not alone and you will survive, even if that doesn’t feel true right now. I’m here to give you the space to share the thoughts and feelings that you aren't able to share with anyone else. You can learn how to calm and soothe your body and mind despite what you've experienced.
