Sarah Smith, ACSW, LCSW-R is an EMDRIA Approved Consultant in Buffalo, NY. Sarah obtained her MSW in social work in 1994 and worked in a community mental health for several years. She worked primarily with addictions and mental health. Early in her career she observed women in addiction treatment had encountered specific challenges to treatment, and was able to address some of these needs through specialized groups.
She was trained in EMDR at the University of Buffalo in 2008 and that training was a game changer for her career. She specifically sought training and consultation to work with complex PTSD and dissociative disorders. She continues to specialize in co-occurring disorders. She is currently an Approved Consultant through EMDRIA.
In 2011 she went into private practice and in 2014 founded The Center for Clarity in Amherst, NY. She opened an additional office in July 2019 to be able to combine traditional therapy with complementary approaches such as Reiki, Emotional Freedom Techniques and Coaching. Her goal is to offer a menu of choices designed to provide holistic healing.
