 Sarah Hamza, MA, LLPC 

 Life challenges us is so many ways but after these hardships, we find our strength. I am focused on the holistic needs of   my potential clients. I believe that a holistic approach to therapy works best when focused on both the mind and body.   Mindfulness and meditation are major components of the therapy process and I will work with you to figure out ways in   which therapy can be most beneficial to YOU. My clinical approach is Person-Centered and I use Strength-Based,   Solution Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral techniques. My goal is to help individuals become self- aware and to take the   steps needed to move toward change.

 My approach in therapy is to help individuals achieve the changes he/she wants to see in life. Working on social,   personal, career development, and anything else that may come up is part of the process. The goal is to develop coping skills, social skills and build self confidence to enhance a healthy lifestyle.

Individuals will find a safe place to discuss concerns or issues that are negatively impacting their life. We will work together throughout the therapeutic process and I strive to assist each person in reaching his or her goals by utilizing various interventions. I intend to include art therapy, music therapy, and stress management techniques, as well.

 

We are happy to contract with the following therapists

 

Loletha M. Lee  Loletha M. Lee, MS, LLPC. 

 I am a kind and considerate counselor who provides opportunities for growth and self-discovery in a safe and caring environment. I   work with children and adolescents with developmental and behavioral issues; individuals with addictions, depressed mood, anxious   thinking, emotional conflict, communication and low self-esteem; couples and families in conflict; and unresolved grief/loss. My   treatment focus will help in changing negative beliefs, thoughts, images, and self-dialogue and helps initiate positive views, images,   and self-dialogue that promotes reorganizing thought process, coping, and behaviors.

As a counselor who is a Child of God, I embrace self-awareness, acceptance, open-mindedness, fairness, competency, and honesty, without bias or stereotype. My counseling goals are to recognize that clients' belief about spirituality and their up-bringing are central to their worldviews. These worldviews influences their psycho-social development and functioning.
