Sare Griffis, LSW

Licensed Social Worker

Pronouns: They/Them

Sometimes our feelings can overcome us to the point they feel intolerable. Sare Griffis helps children, teens, and young adults navigate the overwhelm that can come with anxiety, depression, feelings of isolation, and non-belonging. They are trained in and passionate about working with trauma, grief, attachment, neurodevelopmental differences, and LGBTQ+ identities. Their clients have described their clinical style as warm, open, and relaxed. Sare believes in the power of play and narrative – often incorporating storytelling through art, regulating sand play, mindfulness, and movement into sessions. Sare received their master’s in social work from Loyola University Chicago and has worked in schools, private practice, and community health settings. I am certified in the Neurosequential Model of Trauma Treatment and have received training in Theraplay and psychodynamic therapy models. In addition to their pediatric work, Sare cares deeply about working directly with caregivers and expectant caregivers who are looking to deepen their understanding of their child, and in many cases, heal their own unmet needs.

“Know that you are here and you matter. Reaching out to start therapy can be scary and the “what ifs” may be loud. I am here to be on this journey with you. Together we will discover what you or your family needs and take steps forward.”
