Not Accepting New Clients at This Time!

Sarah Jayne Oltz (she/her/hers) is a graduate student of Thomas Jefferson University’s Master of Science in Community & Trauma Counseling program and has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of the Arts.

After years of pursuing her own personal growth journey and experiencing the healing power of trauma-informed therapy herself, Sarah Jayne decided to follow her passion for supporting the growth and healing of others by switching her career and starting on the path to becoming a trauma therapist.

Thus far on her journey, Sarah Jayne has developed a particular affinity for person-centered counseling, recognizing its power in fostering personal growth and self-discovery. She firmly believes that individuals have the innate ability to find solutions to their problems and should be empowered to direct their therapeutic journey in collaboration with the therapist. She believes that a person-centered orientation is a solid foundation on which additional theories can be utilized to be able to meet each client where they are. Sarah Jayne’s approach is rooted in the core principles of empathy, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity, which she integrates into every counseling session.

“I am dedicated to providing ethical, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed care to my clients. Combining a person-centered approach, genuine empathy, and commitment to growth, I strive to create a therapeutic space where clients can feel heard, validated, and empowered to embark on a journey of healing and post-traumatic growth. I am inspired and honored to be your partner in this work.”

During her time at the Phoenix Center, Sarah Jayne is eager to expand her knowledge of experiential and somatic trauma therapies including EMDR and IFS modalities. She values the importance of continuous learning to be able to adapt her therapeutic techniques to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual client.

Sarah Jayne’s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (53 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
