About

Hi, I’m Dr. Sarah Aldridge.

I’m originally from Indiana. I live in Arizona and I am registered with ASPPB psypact E.Passport/APIT to allow me to conduct teletherapy to individuals any of these 26 states: AL, AZ, CO, DE, DC, GA, IL, KY, MD, MN, MO, NE, NV, NH, NC,OH, OK, PA, TN,  TX, UT, VA.

As a psychologist, I provide individual psychotherapy to individuals who are 18 years or older.

Therapeutic Approach

My style has been described as calming, understanding, supportive, empathetic, and compassionate.

An important factor in therapy is how comfortable and open you feel you can be with your therapist. I create a supportive, non-judgmental space for client’s to explore their concerns. I believe in the importance of having a collaborative relationship with my clients in order to best help them engage in the therapy process, learn about themselves, gain new skills, and resolve issues.

Professional experiences

I am trained as a generalist, which means I have experiencing working with all types of disorders, situations, people, and ages. I greatly enjoy helping individuals reduce anxiety/stress, make life changes, and improve overall mental/physical health concerns.

I have been fortunate enough to work in a variety of different settings, such as: several primary care doctors’ offices, a state psychiatric hospital, a VA hospital, a college psychology clinic, a private practice, and several community mental health centers. These experiences, especially working closely with medical doctors for many years, has greatly expanded my knowledge and ability to help others understand overall wellness, especially the mind-body connection (how our mind/mental aspect impacts physical body/medical issues).

Through my extensive training, I have learned to integrate various evidence based therapy interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), motivational techniques, humanistic approach, trauma-informed techniques, and mindfulness/meditation to depending on your unique needs/desires and personality.
