The healing begins as our story is heard….
My name is Sara Frost and I’ve been working in the field of mental health counseling for the past 12 years. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders, addiction, complex trauma and life transitions. I enjoy helping a wide range of clients including older teens, young adults/adults, parents and individuals facing new chapters in their lives.
My approach to working with clients is strengths based and relational. I firmly believe that a trusting and genuine therapeutic relationship is an essential foundation to effective treatment. People are inherently resilient and with the correct support and tools, healing can occur. I provide a safe space for my clients to feel supported as they courageously address the issues bringing them to therapy.
My approach to treatment is eclectic as I understand that each client has individual needs and responds differently to therapy techniques. I have specialized training and certifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Resource Brain Spotting, Sand Tray Therapy, women’s issues and the treatment of addiction.. I have experience working with transgender individuals as well as their families. I meet the WPATH standards of care for working with individuals who are going through the gender confirmation process.
In 2007 I earned a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM. After graduate school, I spent a number of years working with families and teens in therapeutic wilderness programs and boarding schools. After the birth of my daughter, I began working with clients in a more traditional outpatient setting as well as over tele-health.
In 2020, I became a nationally certified counselor and licensed as a specialist in the treatment of addiction. I am currently training with the EMDR Institute. I am licensed to practice in Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina and provide mostly telehealth.
