Sara Anderson, LPC/MHSP

Sara Anderson is a Licensed Professional Counselor – Mental Health Service Provider. Sara is passionate about restoration and healing brokenness. She is deeply committed to helping clients answer life’s big questions, gain insight into their emotions, and live authentically. Sara assists people throughout their lifespan, supporting them as they navigate anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, faith questions, emerging adulthood, and relationship issues. She spent several years in community mental health and also has experience working with children in the foster care system and families post-adoption.

Sara grew up in Southeast Asia and spent another 10 years living and working abroad after university. She draws on this cross-cultural experience in her therapeutic practice, meeting people where they are and walking alongside them, no matter their background or worldview. Before her career in counseling, Sara was an educator and taught middle and high school, spent time as a legal secretary, and worked in business development for an international law firm. She’s traveled on four continents and still has an extensive travel bucket list. Sara is finding new peace as roots grow in Tennessee. In her free time, Sara enjoys reading, photography, watching British television, spending time with family and friends, and she is active in her church.

Sara believes therapy is about more than diagnoses and symptoms. “There is something deeply humbling about being entrusted with someone’s story. Bearing witness to pain and sorrow, celebrating joy and growth…these are sacred spaces. It is a privilege to be invited in, to be given a seat at the table.”
