Sarann has completed a Master of Counselling degree from Monash University, Australia. Her training and counselling techniques draw upon an eclectic range of modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Exposure Therapy. She currently serves as a Committee Member for NuLife Care & Counselling Services, a non-profit organization that aims to provide mental health support to underprivileged and marginalized communities in Singapore. Sarann has also provided volunteer work for the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME), in support of FDW and other underrepresented groups gaining greater access to educational and mental health needs.
The transition into the field of psychotherapy was a natural progression for Sarann. With the majority of her work experience in the education sector, she understands the importance of mental health and the impact that it carries. In her previous position as an English Teacher and Citizenship Instructor, she strived to incorporate elements of self-care and promote positive thinking, not realizing at the time that this passion to support others would eventually lead her to become a therapist.
Originally from the United States, Sarann has also lived in several different countries and is well equipped to work with individuals from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. She provides culturally sensitive therapy and tailors each session to fit the needs of her clients. Her professional training allows her to work with clients on issues such as depression, anxiety, grief & disenfranchised grief, phobias, issues regarding self-esteem/self-confidence, and family issues. She recognizes that each client is unique and aims to offer a counselling journey where each client is valued and respected.
Sarann is a registered student member with the Singapore Association for Counselling (Membership #F0086).
