SARA MORROW is a Licensed Psychologist and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) in
Coeur d'Alene who specializes in child, teen, and family mental health services. In her private practice, Dr. Morrow provides psychotherapy to youth and their families for treatment of a wide variety of issues – anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, behavioral disorders, coping with stressors/trauma, and parental guidance and consultation.
Dr. Morrow developed Mind Balance Yoga in order to guide people toward optimal well-being, combining the science of western psychology with the wisdom of eastern yoga philosophy. She finds that yoga is the “putting into practice” much of what she teaches her therapy clients – mindfulness, breathing techniques, relaxation, increased awareness of negative/harmful ways of thinking, cognitive restructuring to direct the mind towards positive/adaptive ways of thinking, self-compassion and having a healthy body image, social and communication skills, and coping skills for managing stress/anger/anxiety/depression/trauma.
Sara teaches from a deep sense of connection and social responsibility. She finds great joy in sharing yoga's transformative influence on the body and mind.
