Sarah Scanlon, MS, LPC, NCC

Clinical Therapist

As a clinical therapist at Hope House, Sarah provides therapy to children and teens of all ages. She helps child abuse victims process traumatic or scary events using the TF-CBT model. She also meets with caregivers and provides them with valuable resources that will help the child through their recovery journey. The thing she loves most about her job is hearing how activities from therapy are helping her clients in their everyday lives.

When asked what ultimately led her to Hope House, Sarah responded:

“Counseling children has always been a passion of mine. Considering children’s environments, needs, socioeconomic status, etc. has allowed me to see how every child is unique. When I graduated school with my master’s degree in counseling, I was praying to find a job in the field that focused on children. Getting hired as a clinical therapist at Hope House was an opportunity that fulfilled my passion for working with children and providing them with the help and guidance they need to overcome traumatic events in their lives. Hope House and their mission is unique and in high demand. It’s amazing to be a part of this team!”

Sarah received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Southeastern Louisiana University. She is a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and an LPC in Louisiana and Mississippi. She is also certified in TF-CBT and she is currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Counseling Education and Supervision from the University of Holy Cross.

Outside of her passion for counseling, Sarah loves spending time with her family and Golden Retriever, Knox.
