Professional statement

Sarah Betz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and certified yoga teacher in Midtown, Manhattan who works with adults across the lifespan. She specializes in trauma, including childhood trauma, emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse, codependency, mind-body work, addiction, PTSD, disassociation, anxiety, depression, and self-harm. She is also passionate about LGBTQIA affirming, body-positive, and sex-positive therapy.

Sarah’s approach is eclectic and holistic—one that incorporates psychodynamic, relational, and trauma-informed lenses for treatment. She often uses mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), addiction models, and body-oriented therapies in sessions. She takes an individualized approach and helps clients identify the therapeutic tools that are the best fit for them.

Sarah enjoys integrating yoga into sessions, when appropriate. She shows her clients certain poses to help manage and/or combat their symptoms. For example, she will give a client with depression energizing poses they can utilize at home.

Sarah works with her clients to develop long-lasting changes. She is there to support them on their journey towards healing by offering a safe, nonjudgmental space.
