Meet Sarah Watson
Whatever brings you through the door, therapy is a place where you can come to heal—and my role is to guide and support you through that process. Healing is not a straight line, and I will hold space for you to share, explore, challenge, and transform. I primarily work through emotion focused, attachment, and somatic lenses, with additional training in the worlds of sex therapy and relationships. I’m someone with a lot of big feelings, who has spent many hours on the other side of the couch as a client – I got into this work from a place of wanting to help others on their journeys, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to hold a safe container for you to process and feel what needs to be felt.
Wherever we start, we will end up in the right place. I want to build a relationship with you where you can feel safe to be vulnerable, creating space for both the past and the present to be explored with care and compassion. On my end, I bring my whole self to our sessions, and aim to connect first and foremost as humans. Together, we can help you find a deeper understanding and embodiment of your feelings, gain insight on your needs and boundaries, and work to leave behind what no longer serves you.
I work one-on-one and with relationships – whether you are dating, married, friends, or business partners. I am allied with people who are 2SLGBTQ+, disabled, members of the BIPOC community, and sex workers, and I welcome folks in normative and non-normative relationships. Inside and outside of the therapy room, I am a white, queer, and neurodivergent person, practicing and living on the unceded territories of the Xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
If you are interested in working together, please reach out via my contact form to schedule a free consultation phone call; I am happy to answer any questions you have about the process, and to see if we are a good match.
