Sabrina Kaiser

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Hi, I’m Sabrina, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist.

I approach my work from a place of genuine openness and interest in my clients, and the ways in which they define the barriers showing up in their lives. Taking into account the highly individualized and nuanced experiences of each client, my goal is to collaborate with you to identify and amplify your strengths, as well as explore ways for you to effectively navigate the challenges you face in life. Feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Having difficulty navigating a life transition? Trying to break free from patterns of behavior that don’t serve you? Experiencing challenges within your relationship? Let’s talk. I will take the time to see you for who you are and find ways to address stuck points that may be beyond your view.

The support I provide is built upon a foundation of various evidence-based methods, and I strive to remain flexible and adaptable regarding which particular method is best suited to your needs as an individual or couple at any given time throughout treatment.

With a degree in Intercultural Relations and professional experience working in international education, I am energized by working with a diverse array of clients. I look forward to learning how cultural understandings influence your experiences and exploring how that may direct your therapeutic process.

I believe, at its best, therapy represents a courageous and illuminating journey towards healing and growth within ourselves and with our loved ones. I would be honored to walk alongside you on that journey.

What Makes Me Credible:

I have experience supporting individuals and families seeking treatment for eating disorders, depression, generalized anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder, as well as those struggling with social anxiety, perfectionism, and difficult life transitions.

I have experience applying aspects of Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Response Prevention Therapy (ERP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
