About My Clients

My name is Sarah Lawley. I run Self emBody Therapy and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in San Diego. It is my passion to help you find peace in your life. Whether you are constantly worrying about food, struggling with exhausting exercise routines, or experiencing poor body image…I can help. If you feel consumed by anxiety, stress, or thoughts of past trauma, therapy can offer you relief and hope. If you are feeling depressed or helpless…let’s help you find your purpose again.

My Background and Approach

I work with adolescents and adults struggling with disordered eating, poor body image, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I help individuals work through uncomfortable feelings and break negative behavioral patterns. I teach clients coping skills for lasting relief so that you can go on to live the life you've always imagined and hoped for. I have an eclectic approach in therapy, and I utilize the skill set that will fit your needs. I am trained in evidence-based practices such as CBT, DBT, ACT, and EMDR. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher, so I utilize mindfulness and relaxation practices often in my work. There is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach in therapy, so I feel that it is helpful to have a large toolbox to pull from when working with a diverse range of clients. All in all, it is most important to me that you as a client understand that our time together is YOURS -- I have no agenda, other than to just provide the support that you may need in that moment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I truly believe that we all hold the power within ourselves to make great changes in our lives -- no matter our current circumstances. I take a strength-based approach with clients and I help them utilize their innate positive characteristics in order to instill lasting changes in their life. I believe that you have the power to create your own current reality, no matter what has happened to you in your past. I am very big on positive psychology, mantras, and self-affirmations. I spent the first half of my life riddled with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and an eating disorder. Through my own therapy, I was able to overcome these challenges and find the self-compassion and confidence that I had always been looking for. I want you to experience this same freedom and fulfillment in your life. I am a Health at Every Size clinician and I believe that our external circumstances and image do not determine our internal reality.
