Hello! Are you looking to make changes in your life? Does it feel like something is missing? Would you like a supportive space to get help? I might be the therapist for you. Through genuine acceptance and ongoing collaboration, I help my clients examine their past patterns to understand how they have come to be the person they are now. If something is impeding them from achieving the fulfillment they want and deserve, I also offer concrete ways that can help them obtain those goals.
Given my extensive experience working with college/graduate students, individuals with eating disorders, LGBTQ+ young adults, and trauma survivors, I have a specialized understanding of these groups/concerns. More broadly, I enjoy working with adults and older adolescents around a variety of issues, such as stress management, anxiety, relationship difficulties, or adjustment troubles.
Deciding to pursue therapy is a brave step. I welcome you to contact me to see if we are a good fit to work together. My website, http://www.sarahgodoyphd.com has more information on my approach and philosophy. My office is metro-accessible, and I offer morning and evening hours. My practice is a safe space and affirming of diverse identities.

We offer all of these in a safe, comforting environment with a truly caring staff.

For nearly two decades I have been privileged to work alongside parents, children, adolescents and adults of all ages to understand the deeper meanings of troubling thoughts, feelings and behaviors and other symptoms of distress. My collaborative approach is grounded in enhancing personal growth and the innate human capacities for loving, giving, healing painful traumas, and increasing enjoyment of one’s life. The therapeutic relationships I facilitate are empowering, respectful, caring, and support the freedom to fully express one’s experience, uniqueness, vitality, and engagement of the depth and breadth of human existence.

Clients in my practice gain new awareness regarding their difficulties, increase autonomy and authentic ways of being, experience deeper meaning in their lives, and develop healthier and more effective ways of engaging life challenges.

I endeavor to improve intimate and family relationships, strengthen parent-child/teenager relationships; understand the nature of one’s anxiety and depression; grief, loss, and trauma; improving self-esteem; effectively managing job stress and improving job performance; addressing personal and societal struggles with racial & gender discrimination, gender identity & diversity, and sexual orientation. I also provide compassionate, affirmative therapy with the kink, poly, and pro-sex communities.

The experience of witnessing others realize how much they have changed from the process of therapy reminds him of how much we all need someone to help us to fully see ourselves and to have a space to make changes in our lives to get where we want to go.

My intention is to help you support your own well-being, health, and happiness with the tools you acquire through our wellness and counseling services. As a licensed acupuncturist, clinical psychologist and counselor, I have provided integrative, holistic practices in acupuncture, body therapy, life/wellness coaching, and counseling since the 1980s, and have been cited in Washingtonian Magazine as being among the most highly regarded practitioners in my field. I see you as a whole person instead of merely a set of symptoms, working with you to cultivate and support your inner self-regulating mechanisms that help to maintain harmony in your well-being, health, and personal and professional relationships.
In psychotherapy, I provide a calm, welcoming setting to give you space to explore your feelings, emotions and behaviors, gain awareness, process problems, develop practical coping techniques, and help increase your capacity for growth and wellness. In couples therapy and relationship counseling, I help you and your partner find better ways to talk to each other, discover effective methods to help you decrease contention, and to build a solid relationship foundation that can strengthen respect, esteem, fulfillment, intimacy, tenderness, and mutual support.
My comprehensive methods honor the body-mind connection. I use a wide range of complementary therapies, focusing on essential qualities that amplify the strengths that are already within you, to help you flourish and become successful in handling life’s challenges.
