Sarah Chouffot, RSSW
Registered Social Service Worker, Mental Health Counselor, Psychotherapist (Supervised), & End of Life Doula
I know how it feels like to be anxious, stressed, depressed, traumatized and alone. Life can throw us a lot of curve balls that make us feel not so great about ourselves. But, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. When you work along side me, I help you to learn about yourself, important mental health information, and how to move forward to start feeling better!
It is easy to give up on yourself and fall back into old patterns, so I suggest giving yourself the best shot at improving your mental health by joining me on this journey. Invest in yourself and see the world, and yourself in a new light!
I am very down to earth and take pride in my knowledge base. My sessions are very flexible and easy going! I will be myself completely, and you can too!
I offer trauma & polyvagal informed counselling services but am also training in CBT, DBT, and ACT and offering supervised psychotherapy. (Please see FAQ page for more information)
