Sara Lederer, PsyD
Director of Clinical Training and Core Faculty, MA in Psychology
Sara Lederer entered the field of psychology to work clinically in hospice and oncology, with the intention of having a career that integrated spirituality. When a colleague recommended her for an adjunct teaching position for a doctoral level course at a nearby university, she discovered that teaching and academics were her passion. She quickly began teaching more courses, as well as accruing academic administrative positions, to help organize behind the scenes.
While she thoroughly enjoys being a clinician in private practice, specializing in anxiety disorders, she loves teaching and the overall academic environment. She hopes for her courses to be an opportunity for self-reflection, personal growth and awakening. In addition, she brings many aspects of self-care and self-nurturance into her courses, to help clinical trainees buffer and mitigate the challenges that may accompany training. She was awarded Most Valued Professor in 2010 from Argosy University.
