Sarah Pender-Bey

Hello, I am Sarah PenderBey! I’m a therapist at Denver Mental Health Collective, and you can also call me a resilience builder, worry soother, and mindfulness advocate.

I help people find acceptance and value in themselves so they can better navigate this funny thing called life.

My ideal populations are adolescents and adults with diverse backgrounds and identities looking to gain support in anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief. Young adults are navigating families, friends, partnerships, school, work, future planning, social media, and more. Managing all of that can be overwhelming. Together, we will explore who you are and find new ways of thinking and being so you can live your best life.

Resilience Builder

Do you often feel like life is extremely unfair? Well, it can be.
Sometimes circumstances in our life are completely out of our control. This can lead to feeling insecure, anxious, hopeless, and withdrawn. Let’s find what you can control and learn new ways to cope with the challenging parts of life. Developing the right tools can bring lasting change.

Worry Soother

Are your worries preventing you from doing the things you enjoy?
Although anxiety is a survival mechanism, it can easily lead to problems in the modern world. Imagine feeling your heart racing, palms sweating, shakiness, and thinking of every worst-case scenario in situations that should be familiar and safe. What an overwhelming experience that can be. It’s natural to avoid uncomfortable feelings like anxiety to have temporary relief but this often leads to long-term anxiety growth. Let’s explore your anxiety so you can gain the power to overcome anxious thoughts.

Mindfulness Advocate

Did you know that mindfulness meditation has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms?
The word “mindfulness” seems to be a buzzword lately and for good reason. Have you ever been around a person who reacts first and apologizes later? We’ve all done it. Mindfulness can guide in the practice of reconnecting you to your mind and body so you have a non-judgmental view of your emotions. Give yourself the opportunity to feel a sense of calm.

Education and Training:

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado Denver and my Master’s degree in School Counseling with an additional focus on Professional Counseling at Lewis University in Illinois.

I’ve had the privilege of working closely with adolescents and young adults throughout the years, mostly in a school setting. I have experience working with different cultures, identities, ages, and abilities. I am familiar with the complexities of being a young adult in this modern world. My exposure and experience strengthen my ability to work with diverse backgrounds.

I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. My style of therapy includes talk, activities, journaling, and movement.
