Prior to 2020 there was already a shortage of practitioners addressing trauma.
Seeing that gap, four individual trauma experts came together to form SARAH.
SARAH, or "Sow And Reap And Heal", is a name meaning joy and delight.
SARAH is also a 3 step process (sow, reap, heal) we guide you through to move beyond challenges to joy.
SARAH is in no way a replacement for medical, behavioral health, or mental health care.
SARAH is awareness, education, and tools to grow self-care and self-management on your wellness journey to rebounding and reintegration.
