About Sarah McClane

So What's the Deal with Sarah?

I’m a straight shooting, tell it like it is, kind of therapist. I’m laid back and do my absolute best to make therapy a comfortable experience for you. We’ll do our best work together when we have a good rapport and build a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship. I treat each of my clients individually. No cookie cutter therapy in my practice! 

My passion is helping you find real-world solutions that you can easily put into practice. I don’t use a lot of psychobabble or buzz words to get my point across. I focus all of my attention on you and the conversation we’re having to give you feedback you can really use.

Giving you personal attention is my priority whether it’s answering messages within a couple of hours or remembering the smallest details about your life each time we talk. You'll always deal with me directly. No secretaries or billing staff. I do it all to serve you personally. I care deeply about my clients and it’s my honor to help you transform your life.

And When You’re Not Helping Others?

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time on our waterfront property and pontoon boat with my husband and our Goldendoodle, Stormy. She’s one hell of a boat captain! I’m also an avid reader, adult colorist, and may be addicted to putting jigsaw puzzles together. 

Psychotherapy is my second career!

Prior to being a therapist, I was a project manager and financial analyst in the corporate world. I like to think that gives me a good balance between being a driven and meticulous organizer and a happiness locator who helps clients learn to love their lives.
