Sara Battista, LCPC, LPC

Entering therapy is an exciting and empowering experience, which is most effective when working with the right therapist. I pride myself on fostering an accepting and compassionate environment that invites authenticity without fear of judgment. I have a collaborative counseling style and strive to support my clients in creating value-consistent, goal-directed change. 

I believe...

 Perfection is boring.


Authenticity is interesting.

Therapy can be fun.

  Together, let's embrace the Real You.
