Sarah  Penston

Art Therapist, MS, ATR, LPC

Life fueled by creativity and passion.


I am a creative and passionate person in both my professional and personal life. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia as well as a registered art therapist (ATR). I believe in bringing a creative approach to all aspects of life.


Art therapy allows me to bridge the gap for those that struggle with verbal expression by offering an alternate form of communication and self-expression to ensure a positive therapeutic experience. Areas of experience include anxiety, parenting skills, adjustment to new life circumstances, mood disorders, and impulse disorders.

My counseling style is warm and inviting. I believe in working collaboratively with you to identify your goals and encouraging you to remain actively involved throughout the therapeutic relationship. I treat everyone as an individual and each therapeutic journey is personalized and unique to you and your needs.

I want to help you find your passion and love for life. Reach out today so that we can start this journey together.
