Sarah S. Shay received her Master of Arts in counseling psychology from John F. Kennedy University in California in 2005. Prior to joining Rogue Community Health as the Integrated Behavioral Health Clinician at the Medford medical clinic, her clinical work was based in the Portland and San Francisco areas. Her clinical focus and ages-served is broad, but has focused in the past with adults in middle-and-later life transitions (aging, identity, change in cognition, death, anticipated grief), as well as younger individuals in various stages of caregiving and/or role-reversals, and managing their own life transitions. Sarah is a self-described polymath, also holding a Clinical Graduate Certificate in sleep and dream studies (JFK University), a Bachelor of Arts, and a Master of Arts in music theory and composition with organ performance (Indiana University of Pennsylvania). She is also an accomplished visual artist, having shown and been published both locally and internationally, and has been employed as a professional musician since she was 14. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, farming/gardening, etymology, learning new subjects, and making people laugh or groan with her terribly funny (at least to her!) puns.
