About

Sarah+Betz,LCSW_6

Sarah is a trauma focused therapist in private practice in Midtown Manhattan and North New Jersey. With over 8 years of clinical experience, Sarah holds a Master’s of Social Work from NYU. With a lifelong interest in both learning and teaching others about sexuality, she began as a peer educator with Planned Parenthood, followed by obtaining a minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies while pursuing her undergraduate degree in Social Work. She was also heavily involved in the National Organization for Women at NYU and the Radical Social Work Group on and off since graduate school. 

Much of Sarah’s career has been spent working in the field of trauma, often specifically focused on the intersection of addiction and trauma. Her focus on trauma has led her to learn a variety of techniques including CBT, Seeking Safety, mindfulness, meditation, somatic and/or body-based modalities, and yoga. As a therapist, she is passionate about LGBTQIA affirming, body positive and sex positive therapy.

Sarah is also an avid yoga practitioner and teacher. She began learning yoga as an elective in middle school. In 2017 yoga became a daily practice and led her to take her first yoga teacher training at Abhyasa Yoga in Brooklyn, NY with J. Brown. She currently teaches yoga in Lyndhurst, NJ.

Yoga and psychotherapy both have the potential to help in many aspects of life. Sarah would be honored to have the opportunity to share in your journey of self-discovery.
