We adapt, and  our roots grow stronger

Welcome to Adapting Roots, LLC, a therapeutically creative endeavour by Sara Dryden, LCSW.   Located in Portland, OR, providing professional services throughout Oregon through video meetings or arranged travel.

Thanks for considering me to help you on your journey through this complex world, to find meaning to the nature of your place here, in the body you inhabit, with the wisdom you already have, to be able to see and show up as your truest self.

Whether our roots provided us strength and safety, or discomfort and fear, our ability (and willingness) to adapt to where we find ourselves now will determine our growth. We all have the capacity to evolve, to liberate ourselves from that which breeds suffering, and to love ourselves as we do.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.  

-Charles Darwin

Change is a Given.  Growth is Optional.

Intentional, Honest, Authentic

Who you are depends on who you want to be, and what you practice each day.

Nothing is static.  Change begins with intention.
