“MEET THE THERAPIST”
Sarah Witt, LMFT, Owner
I graduated from Northern Illinois University with an undergraduate degree in Family and Child Studies and a specialized master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have worked in both private and community-based counseling centers as well as with a crisis intervention program across counties in Illinois. As a TBRI Educator (Trust Based Relational Intervention), I am equipped to help parents, teachers, administrators, and other adults learn the most effective ways to engage hard-to-reach children and teenagers. I focus on helping individuals from hard places reach a deeper level of healing and strengthen attachment in relationships.
Having experience working with children as young as 5 years old and adults in all stages of life, I am confident in my ability to support you through the twists and turns of life. It is my priority to strengthen and equip you so that you can experience a deeper wholeness in Jesus Christ and live life with peace and joyful abundance.
The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired, inerrant, and trustworthy Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of human beings, and the final authority for all matters about which it speaks.
That human nature derives from two historical persons, male and female, created in God’s image. They were created perfect, but they sinned, plunging themselves and all human beings into sin, guilt, suffering and death.
That the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and His bodily resurrection provide the only ground for justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who believe, and only those who trust in Him alone are born of the Holy Spirit, are true members of the Church, and will spend eternity with Christ.
That the Holy Spirit is the agent of regeneration and renewal for believers in Jesus Christ, that He makes the presence of Jesus Christ real in believers, and that He comforts, guides, convicts and enables believers to live in ways that honor Him.
That ministry to persons acknowledges the complexity of humans as physical, psychological, social and spiritual beings. The ultimate goal of Christian counseling is to help others move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability and spiritual maturity.
