Sara Crow, MEd, LCMHC, NCC

Director of Learning and Development

Sara is not accepting new clients.

My name is Sara Crow (Pronouns: She/Her). I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC #11736), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC #628036), Outpatient Psychotherapist in East Raleigh, and the Director of Learning & Development at Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness.

I grew up naturally offering others a listening ear, empathy and support. After earning two undergraduate degrees from UNC Greensboro and working in hospitality & international education, I went back to school for my Masters of Clinical Mental Health Counseling at NC State University. I spent the first few years of my counseling work in a university counseling center with students and community based mental health with children, teens and parents. After the birth of my son, my eyes were opened to the unique needs and challenges of the prenatal, pregnancy & postpartum periods for moms and families. There were so many things I did not feel prepared for and wished I had known where to find support. It was then I decided to focus my counseling work around pregnant and postpartum persons, their families, and the life transition into and throughout parenthood.

I believe the most important aspect of counseling is the relationship 'fit'. Advanced training is important, and also you must feel heard, respected and empowered for it to promote change. I am a trauma therapist and work with both bottom-up and top-down approaches to nervous system healing. I draw from Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR (SAFE EMDR), SAFE EMDR for Chronic Pain, Brainspotting, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing to work with severe stress, anxiety, mood changes, parenting, identity, chronic pain, sexuality, relationship struggles, body image, self-esteem, self-awareness and life balance. I work closely with and am an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community. I am fluent in English and Spanish, and offer a culturally sensitive and humble approach to therapy. I am a lifelong learner.

After leaving my roots in Alaska and living throughout North Carolina and Mexico, I now call Raleigh home.

Welcome to Three Oaks! All parts of you are welcome here with me.
