Sarah Gray

I’m Sarah Gray

I provide a safe space for individuals and couples to share their experiences and process their emotions so that they can move toward feeling more connected and empowered.

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

If there was one thing I could tell the younger version of myself it would be that it’s not that you’re a mess or that you’re too sensitive. You’re a deeply feeling person in a messy world and someday you will learn that your capacity for big emotions is in fact your most beautiful gift.

My goal as a therapist is to create a relationship with each client where they can feel deeply seen, understood, and accepted.

Through our collaborative partnership, my clients can explore their emotions and experiences while always being met with empathy, curiosity, and an open mind. I strive to provide a safe and welcoming space for my clients that fosters exploration, healing, and growth.

I’ve worked with individuals from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, and I am LGBTQ-affirming. It’s such a privilege to hold space for meaningful change and healing with my clients, and I would love to support you on your journey.

I do my best work in helping individuals and couples….

Explore the stories we tell ourselves and the messages we receive in order to come to a place of deep knowing that we are enough just as we are.

Establish and maintain healthy boundaries that deepen our connection with ourselves and with others. Clients will come to understand how they feel the most loved and be able to teach others how to love them in return.

Develop the tools and strength to handle difficult emotions and experiences without abandoning or punishing ourselves.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent several years in corporate settings in customer-facing roles. I climbed the ladder and, on paper, I was progressing in the ways our culture tells us success is measured. Yet, I felt that something was missing and knew I wanted to connect with others on a deeper, more human level.

Taking a leap of faith, I went back to school and received my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University in December of 2021 and am currently under the supervision of AAMFT-Approved supervisor Cadey Phipps, LMFT (TN license #1348).

Now, using evidence-based approaches, such as EMDR and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I help others explore and heal past traumas while reconnecting to themselves through compassion and grace. Additionally, I use influences from more relational models such as Internal Family System to help my clients listen to their own values and needs, despite the pressures of the outside world.

When I am not working with clients…

I am cooking or hiking with my husband and our rambunctious little one, loving on my pets, and laughing with friends. I enjoy reading, traveling, trying new foods, and I am most at peace in nature.
