Sara Kazemi, MHC-LP

Clinical Psychotherapist


Hi everyone! My name is Sara and I am a mental health counselor. I received my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling & Behavioral Medicine from Boston University School of Medicine, and my bachelor’s degree in Health & Human Biology with a focus on Brain & Behavior from Brown University. I have experience working with individuals and groups in hospitals and in college counseling. I currently work with young adults and adults navigating anxiety, trauma, depression, relational difficulties, burnout, life transitions, family-of-origin difficulties, and racial/cultural/sexual/gender identity exploration. I have particular interests in working with college/graduate students, and the adult children of immigrants. 

My approach to therapy is grounded in a deep respect for my client’s unique life experiences and their innate capacity for healing and growth. I focus heavily on the therapeutic relationship and creating a warm, safe, and affirming environment that allows you to show up as your authentic self. While I draw from a number of relational and evidence based modalities such as ACT, CBT, and DBT, I use an integrative approach to collaborate with my clients and meet their individual needs. My approach is trauma-informed, culturally-attuned, and anti-oppressive. 

As a first generation Persian-American, I recognize how impactful racial, cultural, and socio-political context and intersections of identity are to each of us. My goal as your therapist is to nurture these parts and hold space for all the emotions they may bring. While this can be challenging, my aim is for the client-therapist relationship to foster new ways of relating to yourself and your world. I bring my whole self to therapy, and the space will be playful, hopeful, and everything in between!
