Sara Deichman, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 14 years experience and specialized training in Trauma Informed and Trauma Focused Care, Gestalt Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other treatment methods.

Therapy Style

My therapy style is interactive and experiential, balanced with compassion, inspiration, and humor. Using a strengths-based holistic approach, I'll help you develop practical and realistic skills to manage and resolve problems that keep you from fully participating in life.


I received my Master's Degree in Social Service from Bryn Mawr College, and completed post-graduate study in Gestalt Therapy & Theory at the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia (GTIP).


I continue to study and practice advanced treatment strategies that support my dedication to trauma informed care, including:

  • Trauma Recovery & Empowerment
  • Trauma Art Narrative Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques
  • Seeking Safety

I teach the next generation of therapists through individual and group supervision, and promote wellness in the community by offering presentations and training about relief of caregiver stress, Safe Zone, and suicide prevention.
