About Me

Sarah Reimer Dawson, MA, MSW, LISW is a Certified EMDR therapist and has over 15 years experience as a psychotherapist working with a diverse clientele on trauma, anxiety, issues related to gender and sexuality, difficulties with relationships, self-esteem/self discovery, and self-regulation. Believing that self-reflection is only part of the solution to personal and social challenges she uses brain-based and experiential forms of therapy like EMDR, parts work/IFS, the Safe and Sound Protocol and Inner Twin Therapy. These therapy tools help harness your brain's natural capacity for curiosity and learning so that you can relearn how to relate to yourself, others, and the world on your terms. To Sarah, therapy is not a lifestyle so she offers EMDR Intensives and has a mindfulness and skills-based orientation that empowers you to do the needed work now, and then return to regular life with a new perspective.
