Sarah Darby is an Outpatient Therapist at Sparlin Mental Health. In this role, Sarah provides individual therapy to children, adolescents, adults and families, in addition to co-facilitating a weekly DBT Skills Group.
While serving as a volunteer in a domestic violence shelter on the East Coast, Sarah was inspired to pursue a career in Social Work. Over the course of her studies, she provided trauma-focused interventions to children while working in domestic violence shelters, and led an intensive grant-funded DBT program for adolescents with chronic suicidality and self-injurious behaviors. These experiences have cultivated her expertise in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety and emotion dysregulation.
In addition to her career at Sparlin, Sarah runs a “micro farm” consisting of 6 chicks, 5 hens, 4 therapeutic guinea pigs, two dogs, one cat and one potbelly pig. The routine of feeding hens and collecting eggs is a daily mindfulness practice that helps Sarah maintain mental wellness in her own life.
