Sarah Stiefel (Greenawalt), APSW


Sarah is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois, and an Advanced Practice Social Worker in Wisconsin. She spent six years working within the child welfare system, and now enjoys working part-time with Guided Wellness Counseling SC, and full-time at a private therapeutic school in Illinois as well. Sarah grew up in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. She credits her experience writing and performing in a high school theater group for igniting her passion for positive, healthy choices and to offer support to others.

In her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time with her dog, Chili Bean and going for walks when the weather is cooperating. She also does a bit of crafting, including knitting and making T-shirt quilts! Outdoors, Sarah enjoys playing Soccer, and Frisbee golf weather permitting. Baking and cooking are also passions for her, which she loves trying new recipes. Sarah is very family oriented and is happy to be near most of her loved ones, including her grandparents. She does like to travel a bit as well.

Sarah works part time on Monday/Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, working 1-2 Saturdays in person.

We don’t have to do it alone. We were never meant to.
