Sarah Knight, LMSW is a social worker and practicing psychotherapist whose clinical work is rooted in trauma-responsive, anti-oppressive, and systems frameworks. Sarah’s professional experience includes clinical and advocacy work with members of immigrant communities, with people who have been directly impacted by legal systems and other forms of state-sanctioned violence, and with survivors of complex trauma.
Sarah’s approach to therapy is to co-construct a space with each patient where healing and liberation can be ignited through intentional relationship building, engagement in critical dialogue, and the use of mindfulness-based practices and somatic techniques‒combined in the service of each person’s unique healing journey. Sarah is proficient in Spanish and conducts bilingual sessions for those who wish to incorporate both Spanish and English expression in the sharing and processing of their experiences.
Sarah is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of New York, holds a Master’s Degree (MSW) in social work from Columbia University, and is a graduate of the Trauma Studies Center at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy. In addition to practicing as a psychotherapist, Sarah works as an immigration defense social worker in a public defender office in New York City, providing direct social work support and advocacy to people in deportation proceedings and consulting with other organizations to broaden their representation of immigrants with the ultimate goal of abolishing the current immigration legal system.
