"Take a day to heal from the lies you've told yourself and the ones that have been told to you"

- Maya Angelou


Sara Frischer, PMHNP-BC

I am a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner providing psychotherapy and medication management. My philosophy is driven by the belief that no one's mental illness looks alike and shouldn't be treated as such. Because of this I have cultivated a passion for an individualized approach to care. It is my hope that my compassion, empathy and ability to understand the human experience provides a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment for all of my clients. While I am trained in the treatment of a variety of mental health concerns, my specific areas of specialty are treating clients with eating disorders and the psychological effects of trauma. 

I am trained in various modalities of therapy including, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Ego State Therapy. 

Before entering the mental health field, I spent over a decade working with critically-ill children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit as a Registered Nurse. This experience has facilitated an expertise in working with adolescents and their families.

I see clients 12 years and older for psychotherapy, medication management and often, a combination of both. I collaborate closely with members of the client's treatment team to ensure that they are getting the most comprehensive care possible.

Why Naturopathy


Psychiatric Evaluation (90 minutes)

The first time we meet together, I will get a thorough history of your mental health concerns so that we can come up with a collaborative plan and discuss what would be best for your healing journey moving forward. 

Psychotherapy (45 minutes)

If you are interested in engaging in psychotherapy we would typically meet for 45 minutes once per week though the cadence of sessions can always be reevaluated in a collaborative manner. We may also decide to consider medication management in our work together or can continue and/or reevaluate medications you are already on. While I am trained in several modalities of therapy, I rarely use a singular approach in my work with clients. Based on your specific needs, I will evaluate what therapeutic techniques will be best for your own healing. 

Medication Management (30 minutes)

If you are working with a trusted therapist and/or other members of a treatment team, it may be recommended that you inquire about having additional support in the form of medication management. When providing medication management, it is my hope that we can optimize your treatment, often making engaging in therapy a more effective experience. When working in this capacity, and with your consent, I stay in close collaboration with your therapist and members of your treatment team to ensure that you are receiving thorough and comprehensive treatment.


How do I get started?

Feel free to call or email me and we can schedule a time to speak over the phone. I will gather some initial information and you will have the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have. 

Are your services covered by insurance?

I do not accept insurance, however, depending on your specific insurance plan, you may be eligible to receive reimbursement for services rendered. It is best to check with your insurance carrier to see what your out of network mental health benefits are.

What are your rates for services?

When we connect for an initial consultation call, I will go through fees for my services and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Where are session conducted?

I provide both in person and tele-health sessions via a HIPPA compliant platform. 

What is your cancellation policy?

I ask that you give me at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule a session. You will be charged the full fee for the session if you do not notify me within at least 24 hours in advance of our appointment.
