Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (CA) , Licensed Mental Health Counselor (WA)
Los Angeles CA
I often say I don't know what therapy is, but I like it. I think as a therapist my job is to be clear, honest, reflective, and to be present with you and myself. I describe myself as an optimist, and I tend to reflect to the people I work with the things I see them doing well or their strengths. I think I am creative and flexible, and not a cookie-cutter or protocol type therapist, so there is room and encouragement for you to ask for what you are needing less or more of, or for us to figure out what that might be. My work is to connect you to resources, within yourself, in your relationships, and in the world. LGBTQIA+ adults and allies. I've been working a lot with folks who identify with ADHD, autism, neurodivergent, DID/multiplicity/constellations BIPOC folks hi and welcome. Plant medicines and psychedelic medicines integrative sessions (no medicine assisted sessions provided.) Ecotherapy. Please go to my website for information about working with me and to schedule.
I am Sarah Peace (previously Sarah Perry-Marx), a non-binary transgender queer person. I use they/them pronouns. I am a white settler of Eastern-European Ashkenazi Jewish descent, my great-grandparents emigrated to the United States around World War II. I grew up in a middle class family on Tongva territories, Los Angeles, CA. I was raised in the religion of Reform Judaism, as an adult I was involved in the cult 3HO, and now I follow no specific religious or spiritual group. I received a Bachelor of Art’s degree in liberal arts from The Evergreen State College, with a focus in psychology. I received a Master of Art’s degree in counseling psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), with a concentration in integral counseling psychology. My graduate school education was in marriage and family therapy with focus in Gestalt/Experiental-Humanistic, Depth/Psychodynamic, and Integral/Holistic counseling. I have provided psychotherapy in California, New Mexico, and Washington State, at counseling centers, community mental health agencies, in private practice, and in a group practice. I continue to develop with professional training and consultation, deepen with personal practices including meditation and movement, and expand with relationships and community. I am a strong supporter of plant and psychedelic medicines being legal and accessible to all, which includes my support of prison abolition and ending the war on drugs.
