Sara Herrera, LMSW
Sara (she/her) is a person-centered therapist who believes in the innate capacity of people to make desired life changes within the context of a caring, safe, nurturing, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. Her work is trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and attachment–based. Sara strives to create a space for reflection, honesty, and vulnerability. She has experience working with individuals with histories of trauma who are experiencing depression, anxiety, and other serious challenges in functioning or in their relationships. An alumna of Columbia School of Social Work and the Social Work & Diversity Program at Ackerman Institute for the Family, she has also received extensive training in couples and family therapy, rooted in an anti-oppressive approach. Able to draw from training in cognitive and behavioral therapies (including Trauma-Focused CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Behavioral Activation), mindfulness techniques, and psychodynamic theory, Sara will work collaboratively with you to identify the approach that best supports positive growth and change and makes your therapy meaningful and transformative.
