About Anchor
HEllo- I’m Sara.png

Born and raised in a country town in the Southeast
United States, my community-centered upbringing
informs my ideas around accessibility and belonging. I divinely stumbled into work as a therapist about 9 years ago and have spent most of this journey doing my own healing work and exploring what it means to be mentally healthy and mentally ill. 
As a mental health futurist, I continuously reimagine what mental wellness can look like using the technology we have in this era- both digital and ancient.

I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist by training and currently work as a psychedelic research therapist and facilitator. My deepest passion in life is to be a mother and return to simple living in the country. Until that happens, I’ll be recovering from perfectionism, advocating for the therapeutic use of ketamine, and trying to keep my plants alive.
