Sara Vivens


I’m Sara, and I’m passionate about providing therapy to partner with you in changing your life. I’m approachable, warm, and gently to-the-point. I’m here to help you take apart what’s happening and build understanding about why and how you got here. Then, we can create a game plan for making small shifts which lead to major moves towards your best self.

My areas of specialization include eating disorders, racial battle fatigue, mood disturbances, anxiety, and relationship dissatisfaction. I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and Bachelor’s degree from DePaul University in Human Development Psychology.

If you’re wondering about more clinical stuff like my treatment modality, I practice generally from a relational and narrative therapy framework, and pull from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), with Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) thrown in at times for therapy homework. I’m happy to talk more about these if you’d like!
