Sarah Rowat, MS, LMHC-P
Sarah is a Provisionally Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a graduate of Drake University with a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Sarah has a background working in higher education with a variety of diverse populations including English language learners, people with disabilities, young adults, teens, and adult learners seeking new opportunities. Sarah believes we each author our own story in the context of our cultures and relationships. As a professional counselor, Sarah considers therapy to be the hope that change is possible, the past does not determine the future, and tomorrow can be different than today. Sarah remains humbled by the invitation to walk alongside individuals in their journeys toward wellness as they discover the richness within themselves to be whole, balanced, strong, and interwoven with healthy relationships.
Sarah is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a best practice effective in working with adverse life experiences. Sarah also holds a Master's in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling and is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. Sarah practices therapies that emphasize healing, acceptance, and strengths within ourselves, within our relationships, and within our communities.
Sarah welcomes the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants to the United States, persons with refugee status, English language learners, BIPOC, and persons with disabilities by providing a safe, warm, and affirming environment.
In her spare time, Sarah loves spending time outdoors, bicycling, kayaking, hiking, home improvement projects, teaching, and spending quality time with family and friends.
