Sara is originally from San Diego, but has come to love North Carolina. Prior to entering into the field of counseling, Sara taught for 10 years (some of those at Lab!) and holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in education. She found so much enjoyment in connecting behavioral, emotional and academic needs that she decided to go back to school and earn her Master's in Clinical Counseling. She is now a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA) and working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). She is very excited to be back at Lab and support teachers, students and parents in a new way.
In her free time, Sara enjoys spending time with her husband and friends, hiking, drinking coffee, tending to her many plants, painting furniture and practicing yoga.
