About Sarah

Lead Therapist, LMSW

Sarah Fong Underbrink is a Licensed Master Social Worker with years of experience working with patients with various mood and personality disorders, substance use/addictions, psychosis, suicidal/homicidal ideations, self-harm, abuse/domestic violence, co-occurring disorders, and trauma. 

Sarah brings to Arise extensive experience working in inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient settings of both adult and adolescents. Sarah started her career as a therapist performing individual, family and group therapy to patients at various behavioral health hospitals in the metroplex. She then progressed to assist in creating the clinical department of a behavioral outpatient clinic in Flower Mound, TX. Sarah has had training in trauma informed care, domestic/family violence and Domestic Abuse Intervention Prevention, crisis stabilization, and more. Sarah achieved her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Texas at El Paso and her Master of Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington.

One of Sarah’s strongest beliefs about the journey of therapy is providing a non-judgmental environment and developing a therapeutic relationship in which clients can freely express themselves and grow as a result. To her, there is no greater honor than to be just a small part of the unveiling of the client’s true authentic self and witnessing them rediscover their authority of life that the disease of addiction tries to strip away. 

Sarah is excited to be a part of the ARC Family serving as Lead Clinical Therapist of the Dallas Location!

Fun Fact: On her downtime for self-care Sarah plays rugby for the city of Dallas!
