Sarah Roland

My name is Sarah, and I am an Addictions and Mental Health Counselor with a primary focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). This fall, I will start my studies at Central Methodist University to obtain my PLPC specializing in Trauma. Currently, I work full-time as a probation and parole officer and part-time as a counselor, focusing on domestic violence offenders. My approach emphasizes cognitive behavioral techniques to help clients change their thinking patterns and core beliefs.

I have a diverse education and social work background and hold a master’s degree in counseling and Guidance. I am married and reside in Sedalia, where I share my home with four cats and two guinea pigs. My commitment to animal welfare extends beyond my house; I volunteer for two cat rescues—Meow Mission Inc. and Possibilities Are Endless—and serve as a board member for A Hand of Hope, an organization that supports the unhoused.

Outside of work, I find joy in gardening and birdwatching. I am also known for my compassion towards animals, often feeding the occasional stray, be it a cat, dog, opossum, or raccoon. This dedication to helping others, both human and animal, is a fundamental part of my personal and professional life.
