About us

Our Story

Magnolia Counseling, LLC. has been providing counseling to children, teens, and families in our area since 2016. Owner Sarah Bauer had the vision to create a safe place for children and teens to tell their life stories and feel less alone in their struggles. In August 2020, our practice moved from Souderton, PA to Harleysville, PA to expand and serve more families in need. Our therapists are specialized in counseling children, teens, parents, and families.

Sarah Bauer, MA, LPC

Owner & Therapist

I have ten years of experience as a therapist and specialize in counseling children, teens, and parents. I’m skilled at treating anxiety, depression, trauma, self-worth issues, emotional dysregulation, and helping clients cope with life changes. I also enjoy working with parents that are pregnant, postpartum, or adjusting to life with multiple children. I am trained in treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders through Postpartum Support International.

Our therapists create a safe place for children and teens to tell their life stories and feel understood. We use play, art, and other creative interventions to teach children/teens coping strategies that also allow them to communicate more naturally. We also involve parents in sessions to learn tools to support their children and strengthen the relationship.

We're here for you.

Reaching out for help can be overwhelming and uncomfortable. We’re here to help with this. Our therapists strive to help families feel understood and supported. New clients are matched with a therapist based on their specialties and approach in counseling. We know that clients make the most progress in counseling when they feel connected and comfortable with their therapist.

 

 

What to Expect

We will have a conversation with you before scheduling to see how our therapists can help. Our sessions are typically between 50-55 minutes. The first appointment is an intake where your therapist will gather information about past and current issues to explore factors that may be contributing to the present difficulties. Together, you will develop goals for counseling and discuss the approach your therapist will use in meeting your goals.
