Dr. Sarah Schewitz is a Licensed Psychologist specializing in Imago Relationship Therapy and Trauma Recovery using Attachment-Focused EMDR.

My Approach & Values

Dr. Sarah has been working with couples and individuals since 2008 and founded her online couples therapy practice, Couples Learn, in 2014. She has advanced training in the areas of couples therapy, attachment styles, trauma recovery, recovering from betrayal/infidelity, codependency, and recovering from narcissistic abuse (from childhood or in your adult relationships). 

Dr. Sarah has her doctorate in psychology which is the highest level of training available to therapists. She also completed a 2 year process to become Certified in Imago Relationship Therapy, a type of couples therapy that is highly effective in helping couples improve their relationships. Dr. Sarah helps couples learn how to truly hear, understand and empathize with one another by using a very slow, safe and structured way of speaking to one another in session. In your work with Dr. Sarah you will learn how to address conflict in a healthy way that allows you to stay connected, heal past relationship wounds, and understand how past attachment experiences might be impacting your relationship today. Dr. Sarah is also skilled in helping couples recover from betrayal, rebuild trust, rekindle romance and intimacy, improve connection, and more.

Dr. Sarah has also completed advanced training in recovering from attachment trauma using Attachment-Focused EMDR. This type of therapy is great for individuals who are having challenges in their relationships that they are finding hard to control or change. For example, you might be insecure in relationships or have a hard time committing, or get uncontrollably angry with your partner. AF-EMDR can help identify and heal wounds from the past that are causing you to feel triggered in the present.

Dr. Sarah uses a direct and active approach when working with clients. She isn’t afraid to bring the hard truths, but she will do it in a way that makes you feel safe and cared for. Dr. Sarah’s work with clients combines looking at your past to understand how and why you developed the behaviors you want to change as well as coming up with tactical solutions about how to overcome or cope with the present day challenges bringing you to therapy. Sarah’s clients describe her as warm, empathetic, transparent, authentic, knowledgable, and wise.

We repeat what we don’t repair. I believe that most of our current day relationship challenges originate from unhealed attachment wounds and unconscious beliefs from our past. I help couples and individuals uncover and heal from those wounds to create healthy, conscious relationships.
