Sarah Calloway, LCSW

Challenging times in our lives can sometimes feel endless and quite painful. With help, these ‘cracks’ can provide opportunities for healing, change, and a more intentional connection to yourself, others, and the world around you. Whatever your reasons for seeking help, I will greet you with warmth, authenticity, and compassion. I work collaboratively with you and provide a safe, nonjudgmental place to address the challenges you are facing.

I specialize in helping my clients address trauma, eating disorders, body image, depression, anxiety, gender and sexuality concerns, relationship issues, addiction, and recovery concerns.

How I work

I am a strengths-based and psychodynamic psychotherapist, using integrated methods depending on your needs and concerns. My training offers consideration of attachment styles and needs, object relations, and self-psychology. When more behaviorally-focused interventions are needed, I incorporate CBT and DBT.

For couples, I draw on my psychodynamic training and the Gottman Method in our work together. Couples therapy can offer new skills and insights to help couples manage conflict differently. When coming together in counseling, they are able to move beyond gridlock, strengthen friendship and intimacy, and create sustainable change.

My Why

I believe that changes can and do happen with intentional effort and commitment to the therapy process. I am equally committed to providing a positive working relationship and a respectful environment where you can authentically address the difficulties you are facing.

Together, therapy can be a transformative experience for creating new skills and insights to help you manage conflict differently, strengthen your sense of self, increase intimacy and connection, and create lasting, sustainable change.

Clinical Experience

My clinical work experience began providing school-based mental health services at the middle and high school levels, case management and therapy for youth involved in the San Francisco juvenile justice system.

Client Testimonials

“Sarah has single handed changed my life. She is one of the most thoughtful, compassionate, and smartest people I’ve ever met. I came to Sarah broken — a shell of who I am and who I want to be, and she has helped me look inside and bring that person back to life. This type of work is so hard, progress is not linear, and we live in a culture that breaks us down constantly. I wouldn’t be where I am if it weren’t for Sarah and I am thankful each and every day that I found Evolve and miraculously got matched with her.”

“My clinician was Sarah Calloway, I can’t recommend her enough!  She and I clicked super well and I felt that she really cared about me as a person. I felt taken seriously, affirmed, and supported in my recovery in every session.”

“Sarah has really helped my partner and I evolve (ha, no pun intended!) our communication with each other, and how we care for each other. We love Sarah!”
“My clinician, Sarah, is absolutely wonderful. She knows when there is something on my mind and inquires about it. She sees both sides to every story and is so real, honest, helpful, and fosters a safe and welcoming environment. She has enhanced my life for the better and I am so grateful for all of who she is and the help she has provided.”
“Sarah has been so helpful and so easy to talk to. She is so caring and truly listens, and is extremely insightful in all of our sessions.”
