Sarah Saunders, LCSW, LMSW (she/her)
Serenity Psychotherapy is welcoming therapy practice offering support to the queer and trans community in Connecticut and Michigan.
As an openly queer therapist, I am dedicated to creating a nurturing space to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I work with individuals, couples, and folks in polyamorous relationships as they navigate relational dynamics. Additionally, I welcome allies, family members, people living with chronic illnesses, and other therapists and helping professionals.
It can be difficult to open up to the therapeutic process when parts of ourselves may have been marginalized or left behind. If this has been your experience in the past, you are welcome here in all of your creativity, complexity, and authenticity.
"It is a serious thing to be alive on this fresh morning in this broken world." - Mary Oliver
