She is the Director of the Integrative Trauma Program at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) in New York City, where she also Co-Chairs and teaches in the Certificate Program in Trauma Studies.
With a strong belief in a holistic approach to trauma work, Sarah is trained in the body-mind modalities of EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. As a Certified EMDR Therapist and Approved Consultant, Sarah runs several EMDR Consultation Groups and trains EMDR Consultants-in-Training, in addition to being a Facilitator at EMDR trainings. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), she is also a Training Assistant with Somatic Experiencing International.

As an integral member of the Social Justice Committee of the Hudson Valley Guild of Mental Health Professionals, Sarah is actively involved in community action projects such as The Hungry Ghost Training and Retreat. She has been deeply moved in preparing this presentation for front-line workers who have been directly impacted by opioid abuse and the overdose crisis. As someone who has lived experience of substance abuse in her family, Sarah appreciates the opportunity to learn from and share with others in a healing process.
