Sarah Fox applies a harm-reductionist, trauma-informed lens to a healing-centric worldview. She uses an integrative approach inspired by psychodynamic, relational, transpersonal, feminist, and mindfulness traditions along with her lifelong artistic practice as a poet, performance artist, and teacher. She has studied and appreciated non-ordinary states of consciousness and the transformational capabilities of psychedelic medicines across cultures for over 20 years, which has nourished her creative practice as well as her system of belief around individual, interpersonal, and collective healing.
Sarah has a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology as well as a Master of Fine Arts in Poetry. She is also a trained labor and delivery doula, has worked with herbal medicines, taught undergraduate English and Creative Writing, and has facilitated writing workshops with sexual and domestic abuse survivors, pregnant and parent teens, families experiencing homelessness, immigrant and refugee communities, and as an artist-in-residence in schools and community centers throughout Minnesota.
Sarah’s practice has focused on developmental trauma, relational, sexual, and betrayal trauma, attachment injuries, depression and anxiety, parenting and reproductive psychology, somatic concerns, creative process issues, as well as gender, socioeconomic, and race-based trauma. She has worked with and welcomes people who identify as trans, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming, LGBTQ2IA+, and other marginalized communities, as well as people looking for a safe space to unpack and dismantle their cultural and racial biases. Sarah strives to empower her clients with deeper self-knowledge, mindfulness techniques, effective boundaries, holistic integration, and acceptance. She collaborates with her clients in creating a secure and compassionate space for emotional pain to be explored, shame deconstructed, somatic connections tracked with more consciousness, internal frameworks revised and reinforced, and intuitive resources strengthened and uplifted.
Sarah is currently atttending the MAPS MDMA therapist training program.
