Sarah Hubbard, Ph.D
Sarah is a licensed clinical psychologist with 17 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families in various psychiatric centers and private practice. For the last three years she has worked at Center for Change in Orem, UT, a specialized eating disorder treatment center. Sarah has profound regard for the spectrum of ways people suffer from mental distress as well as certainty about the human capacity to heal from that distress. Working from an integral view of psychotherapy, which honors the interconnectedness of our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual selves, she has a special interest in organizing and uniting conventional psychotherapy approaches and contemplative practices into a coherent whole. From a ground of relatedness and presence, she tailors her work to each client using therapeutic methods inclusive of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, somatic, and transpersonal strategies. Also, Sarah’s work is informed by extensive personal study in non-dual spiritual traditions that focus on embodiment (e.g., Waking Down in Mutuality, Tibetan Buddhism, The Embodied Life school) and body-based movement schools that enhance somatic awareness (e.g., 5rhythms dance, Feldenkrais movement, Iyengar Yoga). She is a published writer in the fields of eating disorders and integral theory, she presents at conferences, offers supervision and consultation to colleagues, and provides spiritual mentoring.
