Sara Fuller (She/Her/Hers)

LPC, LSC
Accepting Clients

I enjoy working with individuals (14+) on building emotional balance & managing anxiety and help couples improve their communication.

Licensed Professional Counselor in PORTLAND, OR

About My Clients

My clients are looking to decrease their anxiety, increase their tolerance for emotional discomfort, and fully thrive in their lives. By learning to recognize and acknowledge unwanted thoughts, emotions or behaviors and lean into them through curiosity and compassion, my clients are able to remove the intensity from those thoughts and emotions and take control of their behaviors and live their lives more fully.

My Background and Approach

I use a non-judgemental, collaborative approach that includes mindfulness, strengths-based skills, brain science and CBT. I work side by side with clients to determine their therapeutic goals and the steps needed to reach those goals. We explore various techniques and tools, many of which can be used right away, to help manage anxiety, build emotional strength and stability, and nurture positive relationships. My goal is to help you to find kindness for the parts of you that are struggling, create understanding around your experience, and practice strategies to work with your emotions so you stay in control of them instead of feeling like they control you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that to varying degrees we all already possess skills such as self-awareness, self-regulation, and growth mindset. I believe we are all capable of growing these skills so that we can master the stress, anxiety, sticky thoughts, and feelings of isolation that can overwhelm all of us from time to time and get in the way of living life to the fullest. In an effort to protect us from real or perceived threats, our brains often create habits that may have been helpful at one point in our lives but are no longer necessary now and are no longer helpful. I believe that through self-compassion and skill building we each have the power to change these habits so that they work for us instead of against us. By learning to recognize and acknowledge unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviors in the moment, we are creating the power to choose our response instead of reacting in ways we may regret later.
