Sara Loughlin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 15 years of experience working with couples and individuals. She utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and several other evidence-based techniques, tailored to your specific strengths and relationship. Sara specializes in working with couples who have experienced an affair, high conflict couples, anxiety, communication problems, and parenting issues.
Meet Sara Loughlin:
“As a couples specialist, my style is direct and active. You can expect a warm, non-judgmental experience where I will slow you down when necessary and provide immediate feedback. I tend to approach things from a constructive, solution-focused perspective so I’m always trying to create a healthier way for you to connect with each other during the session. We may even laugh together as humor can be very healing when appropriate! Relationships often get into trouble due to communication issues but other factors like underlying trauma, today’s fast-paced society, not prioritizing the relationship (this happens a lot when people have kids), wanting a partner to change without awareness of your own role, and financial issues are all common contributors as well. We sometimes expect our intimate relationship to provide all our happiness and fulfillment, but I believe relationships work best when each partner also has friends, hobbies, and things that personally fulfill them outside of their marriage. I really like to get in there and help couples find solutions to their stuck points instead of going in circles. My goal is to ensure each person in the couple will be able to express themselves and feel heard, but also for the sessions to be productive.”
