She joins our Prevention Education Awareness Program as a Community Educator here at Denton County Friends of the Family.
Sarah completed both of her undergraduate (a B.S. in Psychology with a Minor in English) and graduate (M.A. in Counseling Psychology) degrees at Texas Woman’s University. While in graduate school, she got the chance to intern at University Behavioral Health of Denton with their Outpatient Adolescent and Adult programs (concerning such issues as substance abuse, sexual assault, psychiatric disorders, etc.) and the Denton County Jail where she provided individual counseling and taught psychoeducational courses to incarcerated individuals. She truly valued the opportunity to work with individuals going through difficult times in their lives and found a sense of fulfillment in it.
She chose to work at Denton County Friends of the Family because she truly believes in the values expressed here. She admires the work DCFOF has done for the community and wanted to be a part of something bigger than herself. Plus, she says she’s heard amazing things about the work atmosphere and knew that this was someplace where she could thrive! Sarah is most excited about getting to work as part of a team to teach others about issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault. Education is so important to her and she is looking forward to being able to work within Denton County to teach others about the work we do here.
Please help us in welcoming Sarah to our team, we are excited to have her on board!
