About Anchored Life Wellness Center

Anchored Life Wellness Center consists of a group of passionate professionals committed to helping people find safety in connection through Body and Mind psychotherapies to heal attachment, trauma, and relational wounds.

Anchored Life offers Mental Health Counseling for children, teenagers, adults, couples, and families.

Anchored Life values helping people be at peace with themselves, helping people find healing from painful and traumatic events in their lives, helping people have access to wholistic life approaches, and helping people by connecting with and being alongside them during difficult life events.

Our clinicians are professional counselors and social workers, all licensed in the State of Ohio to offer the highest standards of client care and are committed to personal integrity and professional ethics.

We are centrally located in Holland, Ohio. Our clinicians offer therapy appointments in person at our office at 7015 Spring Meadows Drive W. Suite 106 in Holland, Ohio. They also offer teletherapy appointments so you can still meet with your therapist from the comfort of your own home.

We understand the search for support on your healing journey can be a challenging one. At Anchored Life, we value and honor each person’s humanity and the life experiences that shaped them to be who they are today. Trauma is not the end of our journey; we would love to join you on your journey to heal.

We have all had painful past experiences! Oftentimes these painful experiences are inadequately processed and maladaptively stored as a negative self belief. This can result in us feeling stuck, insecure, and constantly feeling like we are not enough. There is hope! Committing to go on a journey of healing is a powerful way to help reshape the neural networks and strengthen adaptive beliefs. We at Anchored Life Wellness Center are committed to being alongside you on the healing journey! ❤ ... See MoreSee Less

We live in a society where we often push beyond our limits. Our bodies often send us cues of danger when this happens. Oftentimes, we try to find ways to alleviate our symptoms rather than asking ourselves what our bodies are saying no to. Dr. Gabor Mate suggests that we might find that we are taking on too much, suppressing ourselves, pleasing others too much, or living a life that does not express who we really are. In addition to watching this short video, we also recommend his book, When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress. ... See MoreSee Less

Intentional living means building your life around your core beliefs and including more value-based actions instead of functioning on impulse. It's a daily practice that doesn't require perfection, but a gentle knowing that you can start again in any moment. Living with intention has many mental health benefits such as lowering your stress by preventing decision fatigue which can come with weighing the pros and cons of every decision. Getting in touch with your own inner compass can help you to feel more self-fulfillment, meaning, and satisfaction with your daily life. 🥰 ... See MoreSee Less

Sara Micham
MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Sara is a compassionate and caring counselor who prioritizes providing a safe space for people to share their stories. Her approach is one of respect and unconditional positive regard. She believes strongly in the importance of connection and that fostering a kind and supportive environment is the key to building a trusting partnership on a journey to positive and sustainable change.  Her desire is that people will feel heard and empowered to more successfully navigate through their struggles rather than fight against them or be reduced by them. Sara has been working with children, teenagers, adults, and families for over 15 years. Specific focus areas of her work are chemical dependency issues, trauma related concerns, attachment related issues, depression, anxiety, relational conflict, parent-child relationships, and adoption related concerns.

Utilizing an eclectic tool kit of resources- her clinical approach is grounded in person-centered and strengths-based theory with the use of an array of tools including EMDR, neuroscience, and solution focused with cognitive behavioral approaches. Sara is trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Polyvagal Theory, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR, as with most therapy approaches, focuses on the individual’s present concerns. The EMDR approach believes past emotionally charged experiences are overly influencing your present emotions, sensations, and thoughts about yourself. EMDR processing helps break through the emotional blocks that are keeping you from living an adaptive, emotionally healthy life.

Sara is dedicated to partnering with individuals on their healing journey. She is passionately committed to helping individuals and families on their journey towards healing and wellness.
