Sarah Godoy, PhD

Clinical Psychologist, Director of the Counseling and Wellness Center


Sarah received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from American University in 2014. She uses an integrative approach that draws upon cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic frameworks in order to create an environment wherein her clients feel safe, valued, and ready to make meaningful changes. This could include examining past patterns in order to understand how a client has come to be the person they are now, as well learning specific skills that can help a client achieve their identified goals. Above all, therapy is collaborative and culturally-informed.

As the Director, Sarah provides supervision and consultation to our Predoctoral interns, as well as guidance on professional development issues. With a background in training and supervision of graduate-level trainees, she loves being a part of interns’ growth.
