Do Good blog post by Dr. Sarah Jacobs-Paul


Do Good. Two little words never sounded so simple. At this time of year, the time we actively (with maybe some societal pressure behind it) endeavor to be thankful, giving, and mindful to self and others, we try and do good in the world.

 Will you eat that cupcake?

Will you eat that cupcake?

Doing good is not usually the easiest choice especially when doing nothing is an option. An individual in my life recently did good for me. I am not sure if they truly know how their actions have positively affected my life in a really big way. And I am grateful. Do good not because it’s the Holiday Season, but because it's altruistic, its real, and you can.

Do good for yourself: take that walk on the beach, eat the cupcake, get the message, go to your therapy session. Do good for others: mail the holiday cards, make the phone calls, visit, connect. Do good for your community; volunteer your time, give to that charity, help one being, listen.

 Will you volunteer?

Will you volunteer?

In doing good for yourself and others, you might notice something shift emotionally for you. Noticing your stress level decreases by doing self-care, noticing that it feels good to be with a friend and catch up, noticing that it feels good to do good.

Wishing you joy, and goodness this season and year-round,

Dr. Sarah Jacobs-Paul

Who I am:

I am Dr. Sarah Jacobs-Paul, a registered psychological assistant # PSB94023195 working under the license of Dr. Abigail "Abi" Weissman PSY 27497. I am passionate about the individuals I work with and am highly dedicated and loyal to my clients. I am a collaborative therapist who will meet you where you are at. I will sit with you in your pain, and in your joy. I will work with you and hold your hope and give it back to you when you are ready to take it on. I will advocate with you and walk with you through your therapeutic journey. 

What I do:

I provide individual, couples and family therapy in an inviting, supportive, and safe environment. I encourage personal growth and lasting change through helping clients gain insight into the sources of their anxieties and learn to live a life as their best self. I work with individuals who are 15 and older. 

I specialize in working with clients who are willing and wanting to take a closer look, examine, and make sense of the complexity of their inner selves. I often work with clients experiencing anxiety, stress, life-transitions, relationship problems, or depression that is preventing them from reaching their full potential. I help my clients better understand their challenges, build resiliency, increase coping skills, and promote self-advocacy. I frequently see clients who have come to a place in their lives where they are wanting to take a hard look at their relationships. We don't live in a vacuum and what you do and say impacts other people and vice versa. We can explore what your relationships are currently like and help unearth the tools within you that can lead to more satisfying and healthy relationships.


I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most unique and powerful opportunities to experience growth and change.  In a safe and confidential environment, I endeavor to help a client feel like a healthier and happier human being who can reach their full potential.
