Welcome, Take a Breath. Since you are reading this, you are most likely pursuing change in your life and or relationships. I am Sabrina, a compassionate and holistic psychotherapist, and I would be honored to work with you collaboratively in your healing journey.
Seeking counseling or asking for support takes courage, especially in a culture of independence and self-reliance. I know it is not easy, and I respect that you are considering this step. I firmly believe that effective therapeutic relationships are powerful for achieving healing and lasting change. In-person and Telehealth service options are provided.
This is a 20-sessions program for adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa with personalized intake including standardized questionnaires and tests for both patient and parents/caregivers. FBT is a research-based intervention and the “gold standard” for treating Anorexia Nervosa…
If you are in need of mental health counseling and psychological support for Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Attachment Issues, Life Transitions, or Relationship Problems, contact Enlighten Me Counseling to work collaboratively with you…
Traumatic events can happen, but they don’t have to define who you are. You are not your trauma. You are not what happened to you. You are not the result of all your bad experiences or situations in life. You are so much more than that…
Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should or need to do it alone.

Hi, I am Sabrina Sartori Chouinard
LISW, CCTP-II, Certified and CIT EMDR Therapist, Trained and Certified FBT Professional
I enjoy working with adolescents (12 years and over) as well as adults across the lifespan. I have evidence-based training and experience in treating clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, attachment issues, eating disorders and disordered eating, life transitions, acculturation, and cross-cultural transitions (culture shock).
I have a holistic and compassionate approach, integrating mind, body, spirit, and heart, attuning to culture, and relationships. I adapt different approaches to clients’ needs, including: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), FBT (Family Based Training), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Ego State, Trauma Sensitive Practice, and Attachment Theory, Spirituality Integrated in Psychotherapy, and Acculturation. I also integrate mindfulness and stress management techniques into my repertoire.
I would be honored to work with you collaboratively in your healing journey.
