Sara Pixton, Master Level Intern
I believe in people. We are resilient. With connection and support, we can heal, change, and grow.
My core values are connection and compassion. Healing happens when we connect with others who see us in our wholeness and listen compassionately. I have experienced this healing myself, and offering it to others is my life’s work.
Before coming to The Secure Attachment Initiative, I worked as a birth doula. I was drawn to the doula profession after my own journey through infertility, traumatic birth, and postpartum depression. As a doula, I held space for clients during vulnerable and heavy experiences, listened compassionately and reflectively, and witnessed my clients discover their strength. I now bring this experience to the counseling space.
I love working with people during their reproductive journeys. Helping would-be parents, bereaved parents, and new parents find healing invites them to see themselves as full people with strengths, needs, and a sense of their own immeasurable worth.
I look forward to walking beside you as you heal.
Sara is currently a Master’s level student in Social Work through the University of Kentucky, working to become a Clinical Social Worker. She chose the social work path to becoming a mental health counselor because of social work’s focus on the interconnected webs that impact each person in their struggles and that can be leveraged in the healing process.
Sara is thrilled to be back in her home state of Colorado after a long time away. She adores hiking, long conversations with close friends, and spending time with her husband and three kids. She also loves teaching childbirth education classes and working occasionally as a postpartum doula.
Sara is currently accepting new clients at the Lakewood location and accepts Colorado Medicaid (all regions), Cigna, Optum and private pay. Sara's private pay rate is $80 (reduced rate available for those in need).
