Sarah DeYoung, LMSW

Sarah is a Licensed Clinical Master Social Worker who has been a part of the Pine Rest team since 2013. She earned both her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and her Master in Social Work at Grand Valley State University. While working as a therapist in a residential program at Pine Rest, she gained experience helping adolescents to manage behavioral needs, as well as depression, anxiety and chronic suicidal ideation. Currently, in an outpatient capacity, Sarah specializes in other areas such as helping individuals of all ages with symptoms of ADHD, those who have experienced trauma and/or abuse, and Perinatal Mood Disorders.

Her integrative approach to treatment includes utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This approach addresses distorted or upsetting ways of thinking and the patterns that exacerbate them, and builds on methods of coping that are manageable and reasonable. Sarah is passionate about creating an inclusive, nonjudgmental environment where individuals feel valued, safe and heard. In addition to having a special interest in supporting adults and adolescents who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, grief/loss, or trauma – she is LGBTQ+ affirming and has experience with those experiencing sexual or gender identity issues, as well.
