Our Team, Sara Sarginson, Child and Adolescent Therapy
Sara Sarginson
Hello I’m Sara Sarginson! I am dedicated to providing a safe and non-judgmental space for people to come and work through various life struggles. Each person entering the therapy room will require their own individualized care and I am here to join you in crafting what care looks like for you. I understand that looking for help is intimidating, overwhelming, and can be a difficult decision for some. However I am trained to work alongside you and to help support your needs and navigate what tools you can develop for overall wellness in your life. Not all issues are clear cut with an easy fix, through the therapeutic process, I promise that I will work with you to understand each presenting concern and what life satisfaction will look for you. I have experience working with individuals of all ages in a private practice setting on issues ranging from anxiety, ADHD, depression, self-esteem, trauma, relationship concerns, and other extraneous life circumstances. I like to use eclectic therapeutic impressions during my treatment process with a client. The theories that impact much of my work include CBT, client-centered, trauma-informed, and choice/reality theory. While attending UCF for my Masters degree in counseling, I worked as a registered behavioral technician( using ABA principles), alongside children and families. I worked directly with children who have an Autism Spectrum diagnosis. My role was to work on behavior modification to strengthen independent functionality skills as well as develop language in nonverbal children. During this time I developed a passion for assisting families through difficult transitions and parenting conflicts that naturally arise. I also have experience working with families processing a new autism diagnosis and can assist individuals in understanding themselves if they recently have learned of their own ASD diagnoses. During my time at UCF, I was also able to practice within Hamilton Elementary as a group counselor to multiple children working through grief, anxiety, bullying, and family conflict. I am passionate and honored to be able to help struggling families and individuals navigate through parenting and potential conflicts that come with raising a family. lt your issues were swept under the rug or if you have ever felt unheard, l want to listen. I pride myself in being non-judgmental and able to create a safe space where you feel comfortable to share— no matter the issue and no matter the size. I know all too well that sometimes life can be too much to handle on your own. I would be honored to walk alongside you, as I strongly believe that no one has to face anything alone. My hope is that I can offer support and guidance so that we can build a partnership where you feel supported and feel empowered to take on the world when you are ready.
About Sara Sarginson

I have received my masters degree in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Central Florida. 

During my internship, I worked as a registered behavioral technician( using ABA principles), alongside children and families. During this portion of time I worked directly with children who have an Autism Spectrum diagnosis. My role during this time was working on behavior modification to strengthen independent functionality skills as well as develop language in nonverbal children. During this time I developed a passion for assisting families through difficult transitions and parenting conflicts that naturally arise. 

In addition to my experiences within applied behavioral analysis, I found that the most success comes from consistent and flexible care that we can give ourselves on a daily basis. During my time at UCF, I was able to practice within Hamilton Elementary as a counselor to multiple children working through grief, anxiety, bullying, and family conflict.

Following this experience, I was able to practice within the private practice setting as a counselor to many adult and adolescent individuals experiencing various life struggles such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and self-esteem issues. While working with clients, I like to use eclectic therapeutic impressions during my treatment process with a client. The theories that impact much of my work include CBT, client-centered, trauma-informed, and choice/reality theory.
