Sarah Carver

My name is Sarah Carver and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate at Affinity Counseling & Wellness, PLLC. We offer individual, group, couples and family counseling, serving clients from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds. While working towards full licensure, I receive regular supervision with Susannah Cecil, LCMHCS, E-RYT at Affinity Counseling & Wellness, PLLC. She can be reached at (336) 893-9705 or at  My clinical experience includes work with adolescent and adult individuals. My special interests include clients living with chronic health conditions, those in life transitions or grief and loss, those with sexual identity concerns, those struggling with vocational burnout and stress. I am especially equipped to support those wrestling with spiritual struggles, and clergy facing personal and professional challenges.
Therapy and counseling move at the speed of trust. I believe this phrase captures the core of the therapeutic relationship. I provide a safe and welcoming space to foster trust, acceptance and respect as we work toward your therapy goals. My approach is integrative, drawing on person-centered, existential, strengths-based, CBT, mindfulness, and expressive arts modalities. I offer services via telehealth, allowing you to be at ease in your own surroundings.
