Sarah Wood, M.S., LMFT is a Clinical Therapist at Bright Road Recovery. She brings authenticity, insight, and compassion into each session, in addition to her education and training. Sarah helps her clients feel safe to uncover and work through the issues underlying their eating disorders, in order to help them achieve full recovery.
Sarah received her Master’s in Counseling degree from California State University in Fullerton in 2011, and then went on to become licensed as a marriage and family therapist. Sarah specializes in treating survivors of trauma, and throughout her career has helped her clients work through depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress symptoms, self-harm, substance abuse, and disordered eating. She has advanced training in Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), a mind-body approach that helps clients manage traumatic stress reactions, and in Attachment-Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a client-centered approach that uses bilateral stimulation to process traumatic events. She integrates these approaches in her work with eating disordered clients to help facilitate their recovery process and achieve long-lasting healing.
Helping people reconnect with their most authentic selves is the most rewarding part of working with eating disordered clients for Sarah. Sarah believes that her clients possess deep inner resources of strength and wisdom and that they are capable of full recovery from their eating disorders. She is also passionate about body positivity, and watching her clients learn to accept and celebrate themselves brings her great joy.
Sarah is passionate about helping others, and she finds deep fulfillment in her work. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys reading, baking, listening to music, and spending time with her family and friends.
