Hello. My name is Sara Secada-Lovio, Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor and therapist at LifeSpring Counseling Services. Are you feeling weighed down by stress, anxiety, depression, or life’s expectations? Are you feeling stuck? Are you ready and motivated to make a change? Congratulations on preparing to make that first step!

Life can be difficult, and there is no shame in getting help. Sometimes, it takes a fresh pair of eyes and ears to help you gain insight and get you to that “Aha!” moment. My goal is to help by making you feel understood, accepted, and supported while challenged at the same time. I believe being authentic and empathetic as well as having a good fit are key components in therapy. I work with adults ages 18 and older on issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, perfectionism, identity issues, and life transitions. I welcome individuals of different backgrounds and am LGBTQIA+ affirming. I utilize a variety of techniques including motivational interviewing, solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness, to tailor our work together and collaborate on your specific needs. Part of our work together might involve giving you the reality check that you need or a dose of humor.

I believe in the value of getting the help you need so you don’t have to suffer alone. I look forward to hearing from you.

We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.
