Practicing Since: 2008
Sabrina specializes in resiliency and growth. With a warm, collaborative and motivational approach, she partners with her clients to identify obstacles serving as barriers to reaching goals, managing difficult circumstances, experiencing satisfying relationships and living a fulfilling life. What may seem insurmountable at the time can become attainable as one heals from past hurts, gains knowledge and insight, and learns new skills in a supportive and encouraging environment. Sabrina wholeheartedly believes in God’s redemptive work through Jesus Christ and trusts in His everlasting love and relentless pursuit of you. Influenced by her fitness background, Sabrina believes in treating the whole person by addressing issues of the heart, mind, body and soul. She treats from a strengths-based, insight-oriented, in-your-corner perspective.
Sabrina obtained her Master’s in Social Work from Rutgers University in 2008. Her undergraduate degree, also from Rutgers, is in Exercise Science and Sports Studies through which she began her career in healthcare and health promotion. She has worked with individuals across the lifespan. Her clinical experience largely centers on those recovering from traumatic injuries and illnesses, those learning to manage chronic medical conditions and those healing from trauma or loss. Most recently, she worked at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center with the children and adolescents of active and retired military men and women.
