Whatever your reasons for seeking help, I will greet you with warmth, authenticity and compassion. I work collaboratively with you throughout the process and provide a safe, nonjudgmental place to address the challenges you are facing.
I am a strengths-based and psychodynamic psychotherapist, and I use integrated methods depending on your needs and concerns. My psychodynamic training offers consideration of attachment styles and needs, object relations and self-psychology. When more behaviorally-focused interventions are desired or needed I also incorporate CBT and DBT.
For couples, I draw on my psychodynamic training and the Gottman Method in our work together. I believe that couples therapy can offer new skills and insights to help couples manage conflict differently, strengthen friendship and intimacy, and create sustainable change that ultimately lasts outside of sessions and beyond the therapy together.
About Sarah Calloway LCSW
Earlier days: I was a music major in college and received my Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. After working in the corporate and nonprofit sectors for several years after college, I went back to school to pursue my interest in social work, social justice and the therapy profession. I received my Masters of Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work in Massachusetts where I received psychodynamic training in clinical social work.
Work Experience: After graduate school my internships and work experience included school-based mental health services at the middle school and high school levels, case management and therapy for youth involved in the San Francisco juvenille justice system and outpatient therapy services for adults, families, teens and couples.
I have several years of experience working with teens and adult women with eating disorders at various levels of care including residential treatment, PHP/IOP and outpatient.
Present: I’m now dedicated to my private practice and see couples, adults, families and teens. I continue to run occasional process groups for women in various stages of eating disorder recovery. Broadly, I work with addiction and recovery, trauma, depression and anxiety. My work with couples is collaborative and intentional - together, we work to improve communication, move beyond gridlock, and strengthen friendship and intimacy.
