Training and Credentials:

Hello, I’m Dr. Sarah Forcey.  I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology and I am a Licensed 2010-square-pic-sarah-forceyPsychologist Candidate in the state of Colorado.  The only thing keeping me from being a Licensed Psychologist is completing the required number of supervised post-doctoral hours.  I have already passed the national licensure exam for psychologists and passed the jurisprudence exam for Colorado.  While completing my supervised hours, I am working at Mayfield Counseling Centers under the supervision of Susan Varady, PhD.

During my PhD training, I worked in a university counseling center, a community mental health clinic, and a veterans health care system.  I have experience working with people facing many different types of mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, trauma, grief, relationship concerns, adjustment issues, and identity issues.

Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, Texas A&M University
M.Ed. in Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University
B.A. in Psychology and Linguistics, Rice University

Bio:

I am a Third Culture Kid (TCK).  If you’ve never heard of that it means I grew up in a culture that was not my parents’ culture.  For me that looked like growing up in Taichung, Taiwan from age 8 to 18.  Because of my experience there, I have a love for Asian food, can speak some Mandarin Chinese, and love connecting with others who have lived in another culture or moved around many times.  I am so interested in TCKs and nomads that for my dissertation I developed a Measure of Global Mobility, even though it took me an extra year to complete such an extensive project.  My Measure of Global Mobility can measure how much experience a person has connecting with life in different countries, different regions of a country, and different towns or cities within a region.

I love being outdoors hiking, cycling,  laying in a hammock, or playing ultimate frisbee.  I also enjoy singing, reading, and spending time with family.

Services:

I offer individual counseling, couples counseling, group counseling, and psychological evaluation (personality assessment and ADHD testing).  I work primarily with adolescents and adults.

If you are interested in working with me I’d love for you to contact me so I can answer any questions you have!
