Sarah McCartney

LSW (Ohio)LSW (Kentucky)



I am a Certified Social Worker in Kentucky and am in the process of becoming a Licensed Social Worker in Ohio. I have a BA in Psychology from Miami University and an MSW from Northern Kentucky University. I have experience working with children, families, and adults who may be struggling with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, family/relationships, and self-esteem. I would describe my therapeutic approach as client-centered and collaborative. There’s a common misconception that therapists will tell you what to do. However, therapy is about YOU and your goals and I will help you get there. I will act as an unbiased person who will offer different perspectives, help you find practical solutions, encourage you to embrace discomfort, and emphasize self-care. My goal is to help my clients feel empowered and validated.

I will be your biggest hype girl, but will also be honest with you. I was told I “call people out with compassion”, meaning I can be brutally honest while also being kind. I form connections with my clients through humor and sarcasm. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most vital part of the therapeutic process. Many people worry about what to talk about in therapy. All I ask is that you show up, and we’ll figure it out together. If any of this resonates with you, please reach out to schedule an appointment or bring me any questions or concerns!
