“My name is Sara Fischer Sanford and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I grew up in Nashville, TN and I have been living on the West Coast for the last 8 years. I traded country music for the ocean, and I never looked back. I am excited to be a part of The Mindful Lemon community. I am passionate about practicing Mindfulness in my own life as well as a tool for my clients. I have been a full time Tele-Health clinician for the last two years and I value the ability to connect in our most comfortable spaces.
I began my career over 15 years ago working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Over time I transitioned to working in a medical environment where I learned to value the mind-body connection. My focus in all of my work is helping my clients navigate periods of crises, trauma, or struggles of stress and life changes. The pandemic has only added layers of difficulty that we must all face. I can offer a personalized approach to overcoming your own specific challenges with warmth and compassion.
My counseling style is both casual and client centered. We all process our challenges differently and I can help identify strengths and ways of coping. I feel confident that whether you are seeking help for the first time, or if you have had the experience of counseling in the past, I can offer genuine empathy and a supportive environment to all.”
