Professional statement

Dr. Sarah Karytko is a psychologist in private practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Her practice focuses on treating clients suffering from eating disorders/eating issues, substance use disorders, trauma and PTSD, as well as anxiety and depression, among other mental health issues. She especially enjoys seeing college students and adults as they navigate life transitions, individuate away from their family of origin, and develop their self-identity.

Dr. Karytko has extensive experience empowering individuals to live life free from substance use. Taking a psychodynamic and relational approach, Dr. Karytko engages clients to examine root causes of substance use in order to ensure their longterm recovery. She also specializes in helping clients experiencing eating challenges and body image issues through a collaborative, team-based approach, consulting with psychiatrists, dietitians, and primary care physicians as necessary. She strives to understand each client as a whole, easing away from traumatic past experiences and letting go of coping methods that no longer serve them.

Dr. Karytko strives to create a warm, accepting environment that is conducive to helping each client make progress towards their individual goals.

Message to clients

Seeking help is always difficult, but finding the right person to help you can often be just as hard. While solid credentials, accredited education, and clinical training are essential, it’s also just as crucial to find a therapist you can trust. I take a collaborative, empowering, and in-depth approach. I believe that a supportive relationship between therapist and patient is where lasting change begins, and eventually leads to a deeper understanding of yourself. Together, we will work toward making changes and reaching your personal health and well-being milestones. I facilitate a warm, accepting environment that offers understanding and care, coupled with supportive challenges to help you grow.
