Sara Martel

Style & Approach:

My name is Sara Martel and I am a Registered Psychotherapist. I approach therapy as a relational process that requires safety, support, and non-judgemental presence. This means I see my clients as experts in their own life who bring unique strengths, aspirations, and needs to the therapeutic process, while I am present as a collaborator to help foster self-compassion and empathically witness their wounds as well as their growth. I draw from a range of modalities — from psychodynamic, to narrative, to mindfulness-based — in order to flexibly meet each client where they are. While I draw primarily from a talk-based therapy model, I also believe our minds and bodies are inseparable and may draw from embodiment practices to raise awareness about what is unfolding in the present moment. I strive to create an equitable and anti-oppressive space within my sessions, recognizing the social, cultural, and political aspects of who we are and how we relate to one another.
