Sarah Freeze, MSW
Clinical Director, C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes Psychological Services
I support children, teens, and adults in learning how to accept and feel comfortable as they are. My passion is helping my clients who are suffering from big or small life events find the relief they never thought was possible.
I am driven to this work because I find it incredibly unfair that things happen to us in life, especially in childhood, that are out of our control. Yet, these are the moments and memories that shape our life’s trajectory and our capacity to live freely.
I am queer and racial justice allied. Our unique backgrounds inform much about our experience and our path to healing. I am a therapist who focuses on the healing power of relationships.
I take a trauma-informed approach, meaning I have an understanding of how trauma impacts the body, brain, and spirit. This knowledge guides our work together and acknowledges the nuances of the human experience during and after trauma. I am privileged to have been trained in a variety of evidence-based approaches. No single therapeutic intervention is best for everyone and I take great care in using research to inform which approach may be the best for you.
Our work together will be solution-focused. I value your dreams, goals, and wishes for your life are and will use our time together to bring you closer to them. It can be easy to talk about problems and get lost in them. I make sure we are moving closer to finding relief and feeling better through our sessions
I have worked in a variety of settings and roles. I am the Clinical Director of Create Outcomes Psychological Services. I provide consultation to other clinicians in implementing evidence-based practice and work as an Executive Guide for the C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes Model.
In the past, I worked as a therapist for children and adults who experienced sexual abuse, sexual assault, physical abuse, and/or domestic violence at a community agency. I have experience as a Mental Health and Recovery Coach for individuals struggling with addiction and substance use.
In addition to being a clinician, I have worked in research positions, assisting with federally-funded studies. I collected data on one research grant investigating severe mental health conditions and another that focused on the impact of childhood abuse and neglect on adult functioning.
I earned my Master of Social Work degree from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College located in New York, NY. I specialized in clinical studies and completed the Child and Adolescent Trauma Program, funded by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York (#098698) and a Registered Psychotherapist in Colorado (NLC.0109388).
