"Like a Lotus flower we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness

and radiate into the world."

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.  My name is Sara Cadalig and I am a Licensed  Clinical Social Worker (LCSW #73615) providing psychotherapy to adults in Oakland, CA.


Life can present challenges and create roadblocks to your growth and success.  You deserve to thrive and I would be honored to work in collaboration with you on your journey of healing and discovering your full potential.

Choosing therapy is both courageous and vulnerable. I am always in awe by our innate resources of strength and healing present in all of us.  I bring a deep understanding and respect for those inner resources to my work.  I believe that therapy is a collaborative process offering empathy, support and guidance, and invites you to discover and move toward the changes that you desire in your life.  

I greatly respect the therapeutic relationship and offer compassion, respect, non-judgmental, and individualized approach to therapy.  Each journey is personal and unique, so your therapy will be customized to meet your needs. I utilize diverse, evidenced based therapeutic approaches in my work. I also make it a priority to stay up-to-date with the current research in the field to ensure that I am providing quality service to meet the needs of my clients. My therapeutic style can be best described as empathetic, interactive, infusing scientific wisdom, curiosity, and clinical intuition.  


I am deeply committed to your healing.  My goal is to work with you to access your inner wisdom, strengths and courage necessary to help you successfully navigate life’s challenges. I believe that everyone has the strength to face and overcome any issue.  Through our work together, I will assist you in remembering and augmenting your strengths. We will work together to achieve your goals one step at a time. It is my sincere hope that you achieve relief, gain greater insight, and become more attuned to your authentic self so you can fulfill your goals, reach your full potential and work towards gradual restoration and healing. I have witnessed change and healing occur in individuals when they are able to tap into their inner strengths and embrace the work of psychotherapy through their engagement and work in therapy.

 If you have reviewed my site and are considering about moving forward with therapy, please feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation to assess whether I may be of assistance to you or to give you appropriate referrals.

I also offer teletherapy online, phone and video sessions using Doxy.me

With gratitude, Sara
