Sara McFarlane, MA, LMHC

Core Group Therapist

Sara is a deeply empathetic partner in the process of healing and transformation. She has a Master’s degree in Art Therapy and Counseling, with a foundation in Expressive Art Therapy, and extensive training in Eco-Psychology, which encompasses various traditional ceremonies and teachings, including Vision Quest, Lakota Pipe Ceremonies, and Peruvian Shamanistic Journeying. Sara’s soul purpose is to stand beside others as they reconnect with the truth of themselves, the truth of life, which can be uncovered in our collective and personal creativity, as well as in connection with our natural world.

Sara works with people recovering from process and substance addictions, deepening her awareness of the impact of our current culture’s disconnect from each other, from the earth, and most importantly, from themselves. Sara also works with those dealing with various mental health issues, and believes the current system for treating these issues is deeply flawed, and is continually re-imagining a more holistic and effective approach.

Sara’s personal journey of healing and re-connection includes yoga, African and Haitian dance, art, music, gardening, cooking, meditation, ritual, ceremony, spending as much time outside as possible, and mothering her young daughter.
