Pronouns: She/Her/Hers


My name is Sarah Tresca, and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor here at Deep Eddy Psychotherapy.  I wanted to share a bit about myself and how I approach the work I do to help you decide if we might be a good fit.  If you are interested, please let our scheduling team know – I would love to work with you!

“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”

— Louisa May Alcott


I believe in empathy with my clients, not sympathy.  When I work with people, I look at their strengths, believing that they are stronger than they think and the expert about themselves.  I believe in connection, relationships, and respect no matter what age you are.  I love to learn from the clients I work with, I truly believe that you are never too young to teach or too old to learn.  I believe that no one knows you better than you do and that my role as a therapist is to provide a safe place and be available to offer guidance, support, empathy, compassion, and acceptance without judgment. I really work at meeting you where you are at emotionally letting you set the pace of your growth. I have an eclectic approach to therapy, I integrate client-centered, mindfulness, acceptance, solution-focused, cognitive behavior, experiential, and play therapy techniques to assist you in meeting your needs and reaching your goals.

My Background

I stumbled into the area of counseling after I graduated from Goucher College with a BA in History and Political Science and wanted to do something worthwhile.  I joined on with the Salesmanship Club Youth Camp, a Therapeutic Wilderness Program in East Texas, and found my calling.   I then chose to attend St. Edward’s University and received my MA in Human Services, followed by my LPC and NCC.  After growing up in a big city, I traded this for small-town living.  I have worked with a wide variety of clients, in several settings such as residential treatment facilities, acute hospital settings, and as a special education counselor.  I like to use hands-on experiential experiences, trying to find teachable moments, and using client’s unique gifts to express themselves. I truly enjoy watching clients find themselves and begin to believe in their own abilities.
