Get to know Sarah

Do you struggle with anxiety, stress management, isolation, low-energy, loss of identity or purpose, or just feeling stuck? With the world changing rapidly and societal pressures looming, you may realize that you need a little more support just to keep up with it all. Sarah works with adults and teens who are seeking new ways to rediscover their drive, passion, and purpose. And as an Asian-American therapist, she is passionate about walking alongside Asian-American clients to bridge the gap between mental health, culture, and identity.

Sarah Wong works out of our Frisco location. She has experience working with cases of depression, anxiety, and trauma in partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

Sarah received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Texas in Austin. She then went on to work in college ministry at multiple universities and colleges across Texas and Arkansas. During this time Sarah made many, new cross-cultural connections while meeting students from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds, forming her interest in cultural adjustment and identity development. With her background in college ministry, Sarah developed a special heart for young adults because emerging adulthood is a unique time of transition, uncertainty and potential. Sarah believes that one’s identity is forever forming and reforming as new experiences in life lead to new meaning in one’s story.

Style and Approach

Sarah enters into the counseling space with a person-centered approach and meets the client with empathy and understanding. She believes that the counseling relationship is one that serves as a vessel for the client to safely explore their emotions, thoughts and relationships.

Sarah aims to work collaboratively with clients to help them clarify their goals, discover themselves in new ways, and build resources/skills for a life worth living. She draws primarily from mindfulness, strengths-based, emotion-focused, and solution-focused approaches. Solution focused means that practical skills, tools and plans are sometimes necessary to encourage healing and change. However, each client is unique so she will work together with you to determine which therapy modality is the best fit for you.  

Fun Facts

Sarah is also a Dallas suburb native, but lived in Chicago for 3 years before moving back to Texas.  Some of Sarah’s personal interests include drawing, painting, singing, bouldering and caring for her houseplants. She is a textbook introvert and Enneagram 9. When asked what her dream job would be growing up, she would respond “to work in a cubicle so I wouldn’t have to talk to people.” The irony! It turns out, she does cherish forming new relationships but just not in loud, over-stimulating environments.
