Her current work at the Center involves working closely with families, volunteers and the community in the areas of grief and loss, program development, outreach, and training. Sara holds a Master's Degree in expressive therapies/counseling from Lesley University. She developed an interest in art therapy while working as a K-12 art teacher, witnessing the ways that people naturally process their experiences through their art work. Sara maintains a private practice offering support to children, teens and adults during bereavement and other life transitions.

As well as creating art, Sara enjoys a good read, gardening, bicycling, the company of family and friends, and keeping current with art therapy news and research.
