ABOUT

I understand that starting with a therapist can be a very vulnerable experience. 

And it can be difficult to find a therapist that you feel comfortable bringing this vulnerability.

One of the most important predictors for positive outcomes in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client.

So I really commend you for taking your time to find the right therapist. 

If we work together, the process is collaborative and we will explore the inner landscape using a lens of compassionate curiosity. 

You'll come to know your triggers, feelings, needs, and self with gentleness and nonjudgment. 

I am very drawn to compassion-focused, body-centered therapeutic modalities, and a large part of our process together will be developing your self-regulation and self-compassion towards this inner process, and to learn techniques so you can use these outside of the therapy space.

I have an integrative approach that uses: Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness-based Cogitive Therapy, Nonviolent Communication, Gabor Mate's Compassionate Inquiry, Focusing, Polyvagal, and Trauma Therapy. 

A little about me: I have a varied background ranging from academia, to marketing, to yoga teaching.

In 2009 during my PhD graduate studies in Social Work, I was a counselor for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors for Middlesex County, NJ. The focus of my graduate studies was in family/partner violence and sexual violence.

After making aliyah to Israel in 2011, I switched gears and began teaching trauma-informed yoga.

Seeing the emotional health benefits in yoga students, I was inspired to return to practicing therapy using compassion-based, body-centered psychotherapy modalities. 

Please feel free to learn more about me at www.sarah-friedlander.com

It would be a pleasure to hear from you, and I would be happy to speak on the phone/Whatsapp to discuss what your needs are.
