SARA BRAUNSDORF, SAC-IT
Clinic Manager, AODA Therapist, Mental Health Provider
I developed an extremely knowledgeable approach within the mental health field and have provided mental health services to youth, adults, and families for 13 years. Over the years I've also inherited the title of an Art Guru to my particular set of skills, providing a variety of coping and grounding techniques. I've been making an impact most positively on individuals with varying diagnoses and abilities, improving mental health, recovery, and general well-being.
My focus is to create a comfortable, welcoming and positive fun environment for individuals to feel secure while incorporating art techniques into their daily lives. As an artist, I aim to utilize art materials and directives to active sensory responses and produce imagination, that is directly connected to their trauma and life experiences. Implementing art is my path in guiding individuals and taking pieces of art with them, to reflect positive experiences and growth advancements, towards their best self. I provide group and 1:1 approaches to teaching, modeling, and guiding artwork, to focus on building coping skills, managing stress, substance abuse, self-esteem, and ultimately coping with symptoms of PTSD. I have received various compliments from individuals as an enjoyable and impactful experience as their mental health provider. I look forward to inspiring all individual lives whom we serve.
