Welcome to the therapy practice of Dr. Sara Dupuis
Established in 2005

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

     Relationships play an important role in our everyday lives. When our relationships don't go well, it can create a feeling of stress and uneasiness that can radiate into many aspects of our lives. As a Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist in East Lansing, MI, I work with individuals, couples, and families to help individuals and relationships heal. In addition, I offer therapy for individuals with trauma histories and experiences, helping them to heal the wounds left from their past or present. I work primarily with adults, but also teens and children as a part of a family system. My passion is helping individuals, couples, and families heal from challenging dynamics and events.

     While we can't change difficult situations from the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we can develop an awareness of systemic patterns or negative sensations or perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

     If you're looking for a psychologist or marriage and family therapist near you in the East Lansing, Michigan area, I offer support and guidance through challenging situations and dynamics. If you're just ready to move in a new direction, please know that I will look forward to helping you to achieve your goals.  I offer a number of therapy strategies, tools, and modalities to facilitate change.
