About Sarah Mansfield

I am a Psychologist (Cand. Reg.) working with adult clients to improve their emotional/psychological health and relationships by accessing their inner wisdom and resilience while cultivating a more fulfilling life. I am a client-centered and strength-based clinician who is committed to establishing a strong therapeutic relationship with client’s, taking an integrated approach to treatment.  


Born and raised in Northern Ontario, I relocated to Nova Scotia in 2018 to continue my work in the field of psychology and to be closer to the ocean. I hold a Master of Arts in Applied Psychology from Laurentian University and have experience working in private practice, forensic institutions, and, most recently, public mental health. I have had the privilege to work with clients from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds with varied presentations, including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, disordered eating, personality disorders, and criminogenic need. Currently, my focus has been working with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) delivering Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to improve client’s ability to regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and be effective in their relationships while increasing mindfulness and present moment awareness.


My foundational training is in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), which places great emphasis on recognition, acceptance, and processing of emotions via experiential methods. The importance of emotion and the vital information it provides informs much of my clinical work. I have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PET), Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT). As well as delivering therapeutic interventions, I am trained in conducting psychological assessments evaluating various presentations/needs. I am an open, enthusiastic, and humorous individual who values authenticity, collaboration, and self-inquiry. Connecting with others brings me great joy and I look forward to helping you reach your goals.
