Sarah Melton, LCSW (Fellow Therapist)
Sarah Mohler, LCSW (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Social Worker. She is completing a one year fellowship at the Center for Growth (Jan 4, 2021 - Dec 31, 2021). Sarah works with individuals and couples who struggle with anxiety and OCD, in addition to working on other issues such as grief and loss, relationship issues, depression, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Sarah teaches skills such as identifying thought patterns and increasing self-compassion, in addition to mindfulness techniques such as grounding exercises to increase individual’s awareness of anxiety within their body. Sarah gently encourages individuals to become accustomed to their fear in order to respond to them more effectively. She is familiar with Exposure and Response Prevention, where she encourages individuals to identify their fears and approach them directly in order to prevent these anxieties from interfering with their lives. Sarah’s work blends Dialectical Behavior Therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, along with elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This allows clients to identify their values, and learn how their current behaviors and thought processes might interfere with them working toward these values. Sarah is practical, warm and collaborative in her approach, and integrates the use of writing into her work with Clients.
Sarah completed her Master’s in Social Work at Temple University. During graduate training she interned as a behavioral health consultant at Pathways to Housing PA. After graduation she worked as case manager for people living with chronic illnesses at Action Wellness and as a therapist at Interim House helping women experiencing multiple mental health diagnoses. These experiences gave Sarah an understanding of how to explore mixed feelings around creating desired change in their lives.
