Sara Harowitz, Psy. D

Dr. Sara Harowitz: Licensed Psychologist in St. Petersburg, FL

Are you considering solution-focused counseling services and currently seeking a licensed psychologist, therapist, or professional counselor?

Do you feel overwhelmed and alone in your mental health issues: self-doubt, intrusive thoughts, and hearing that nagging voice that you’re not good enough?

As a licensed psychologist at my psychology practice in the Saint Petersburg, FL area, I support clients to feel comfortable when they attend therapy at the first contact.

Whether we are working on family conflict, relationship issues, couple’s therapy, anger management, or OCD, the therapeutic process requires an empathic understanding and emotional presence. When you find that your thoughts or behavioral patterns are preventing you from being where you want to be, the first step is to make sure you find the right therapist. 

You’ll know you’re on the path to finding the right therapist if you feel as comfortable as possible and have a “felt sense” that you are being heard. As a mental health professional with over thirty years of experience, l would be honored to hear your story and help you make sense of your emotional world, so it no longer plagues and controls you.

Services I Offer

Licensed Psychologist for Individuals and Couples

My clients often comment on how comfortable they feel once they enter my office. There are many layers to an individual, family, and friends. Let’s unpack those layers and identify the underlying emotions causing you pain. I am here for you.

I will help you overcome a lifetime of frustration, judgment, depression, anxiety, fear, and pain.​​ Identifying the root cause of your stress is paramount to successful sessions.

I help couples experiencing relationship problems renew their love and understanding for each other. 

Have difficulty controlling your anger? Early childhood trauma can lead to adult anger. Trauma affects how we learn to control our emotions. It shifts our attention, thoughts, and actions into survival mode.

I understand how debilitating OCD can be. Therapy will give you the space to express your concerns, recognize triggers, and identify associated symptoms.

Life can sometimes seem too much to handle. Let us work together.

I am a licensed psychologist with a psychodynamic orientation where we explore how your past experiences have affected your self-esteem and your relationships.

New clients often feel so relieved when they realize that their thoughts, feelings, and experiences make sense in the context of their childhood and connect to their past. These feelings became rooted in shame and are carried into adulthood.

Mental health counseling via talk therapy with a licensed psychologist can help unpack those emotions and work towards healing.
