Sarah Queen, MA, LPCC
Sarah spent 10 years working in inner city Cleveland in a domestic violence shelter and then a community based mental health program for youth. Sarah learned first hand the impact of trauma and mental health on not only the individual but the family, seeing the necessity of quality mental health services that address the whole person and integrate faith, not just surface level, short term fixes. Out of these experiences, Sarah felt called by Jesus to counseling in order to be a vessel of healing to the deeper issues that people encountered.
For nearly 9 years now Sarah has moved in the calling of counseling, journeying alongside individuals as they heal from past wounds and transform. Sarah has a passion for seeing people set free and released into who God has created them to be. The majority of her advanced training has focused on trauma, formational prayer, integrating clinical interventions with Christian faith practices, and expressive therapies. She loves being an advocate and support for whatever team she is on and has served in roles in prior organizations to train and mentor other staff as well as launch new projects to further the kingdom.
When Sarah is not at Renew, you will most likely find her hanging out with her family, adventuring in the outdoors, enjoying time on their patio hosting a backyard bbq with friends, or driving between sports/dance practices and church activities. Things that are a must for Sarah: Jesus, family & friends, coffee (any way you make it!), time in nature, palindromes (slightly obsessed!), and video chat to stay connected to family far away. Sarah is married to Dave, and they have 3 girls together along with their crazy, fun-loving puppy they rescued a few years ago.
