What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a clinician who has a history in community behavioral health, having to address any and all needs that walked through the door, I utilize a person-centered approach to take in a person as they are and be a resource for them as they work towards their own personal goals.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Sarah Shine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with four years of experience in the community behavioral health field. She finds joy in work that allows her to take in a person as they are and provide a safe place for them to heal and process their experiences in order to set and achieve their own personal goals. Sarah specializes in substance use disorders, trauma, personality disorders, depression, anxiety, grief, and major life transitions. Sarah completed her undergraduate degrees at Auburn University in Psychology and Graphic Design. She worked as a graphic designer for several years before determining she would find more fulfillment in a helping profession. She pursued a Master in Social Work (MSW) at Samford University, as she felt passionate that a person is an expert on themself and their own needs and wanted to be a resource for individuals on their journey to "knowing thyself" and meeting their goals. Sarah utilizes multiple treatment approaches including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Sometimes unexpected things happen in life. Sometimes we need a person in our corner who helps us find who we are and what we want out of life. A helping hand to lead us back to center when we lose sight of what a healthy and happy life can look like. Sarah is confident that she would be an advocate, witness, cheerleader, and guide for the journey you are on to find the joy and contentment in life we all deserve. If you are ready for someone to join you on that path, schedule an appointment with her today!
