Training and Credentials:
Hello, I’m Dr. Sarah Forcey. I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology and I am a Licensed Psychologist 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.
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.
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!
