SARAH HART, M.A.
Contracted Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate
Sarah graduated in 2018 from George Fox University, in Newberg, Oregon, with a masters degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling.
After graduating, Sarah began working as a Child and Family Therapist at Family Solutions - an agency based in Vancouver, Washington that is dedicated to providing mental health services to children, adolescents, and families in underserved communities. During this time Sarah provided individual and family counseling to children, adolescents, and their caregivers. She was also able to utilize the play therapy skills she had learned in school, working with children as young as 3 years old. Additionally, she was a co-creator of a therapeutic preschool program in which Family Solutions partnered with Evergreen School District to provide mental health support and psychoeducation to preschool students, parents, teachers, and other school staff.
Sarah works with individuals and families of all ages, and offers both talk and non-verbal expressive therapies, including sand tray therapy and play therapy. Sarah also offers a parenting class called Child-Parent Relationship Therapy, where parents learn skills for responding to their child's behaviors that will help strengthen and build security in the child-parent relationship.
Sarah enjoys spending her free time with friends, swing dancing, rock climbing, playing board games, puzzling, cooking, and reading.

Individual Counseling is where people come to solve problems, grow, and change their lives in the direction that they think is best for them and their families. When people are stuck and they don't know how to stop certain behaviors, counseling can provide the skills they need to get them where they want to go in life.
Family Counseling is where the parents and kids come together to talk through ongoing problems in the household and how to have more fun and peace in the home. The counselor sits down with everyone at once and identifies how everyone may or may not be contributing to these goals.
Play therapy is an approach to counseling that was originally designed for use with children, and has shown to be beneficial for adolescents and adults as well. The basic principle of play therapy is that, due to development and minimal life experience, children are better able to express the things on their minds through the context of play. Adolescents and adults find it helpful as well because traumatic life experiences can make finding words to express their thoughts and feelings difficult. Learn more about Play Therapy.
