Sarah Mehany, MSW, LSW

Licensed Social Worker/Associate Therapist

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light. Anxiety, depression, relationships, losses, even transitions can become overwhelming. Just remember that you are not alone.

My name is Sarah Mehany and I received a Master of Social Work from Aurora University with a major in geriatrics. I work with adults through the many transitions of life. In the family building years, I help new moms adjust to the challenges like anxiety, fear, guilt, negative relationships, addiction, family conflicts, trauma, and other distressing emotions and behaviors that impact one’s ability to function. With mature adults, we work together on managing transitions like retirement, downsizing, family and friends moving away, and chronic or terminal illnesses. These life experiences often bring on depression, anxiety, loss of identity and even loneliness. I understand how stressful life can be complicated, how we can feel lost, and the courage it takes to reach out for support. I want you to know, I am here to help you feel better. I have worked with many clients who have felt a sense of hopelessness and have worked through their fears and learned to find peace and purpose again.

My goal is to help you identify negative thoughts that are keeping you stuck and adopt new positive thoughts to move forward through the challenges of your journey. I will listen, provide resources, and support you in developing coping skills to deal with life’s challenges as we rediscover your strengths and build confidence.

I utilized various approaches that are strength-based, solution focused and provide new ways of moving through emotional pain. For example, I often draw from theories such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to name a few. Let’s find a better way today. I look forward to guiding and supporting you on your journey of new discoveries!
