Sara Larkin, CADC
Sara worked in the human services field for more than 15 years and has always been passionate about the potential and resiliency to be found in people. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Clark University in Worcester, Mass., then worked in a variety of mental health settings where she provided direct support to clients. Sara’s career experiences include in-home counseling, substance abuse counseling to incarcerated men in recovery, career counseling to adolescents and young adults in a residential setting, and child protective social work. Her skills include goal setting, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral techniques and crisis intervention. Sara believes in a strength-based approach to treatment and that authenticity is key to the helping relationship. Sara is a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor and CRMA.
Sara is a life-long New Englander who moved to Maine in 2014. She first learned about Foundation House when her older brother, who had been in and out treatment for several years, entered as a resident in the fall of 2005. Since then, Sara has witnessed the program’s success through her brother, who remains sober and finds fulfillment by helping others seeking the same path. Sara is a huge believer in the Foundation House philosophy and is grateful to be a part of it. She loves photography, hiking, yoga, being outdoors, the ocean, and the beautiful nature of Maine. If she’s not at work you can probably find her at the beach.
