Sarah has presented on chronic trauma, resilience, and supervision practices at the local, national, and international level. She currently provides clinical supervision and has developed a comprehensive training curriculum for a team of Case Managers, Clinicians, Teachers, and direct care staff providing trauma-informed care to unaccompanied minors. Sarah co-facilitated a support group at NASW-NYC for clinicians working with cases involving trauma from 2014-2017 and she received the NASW-NYC’s Emerging Leader award in December 2015.
