Sarah Filgueiras "Figs"
Sarah Maria Filgueiras (she/they) is also known as “Figs” to her colleagues, is a Miami-born-and-raised Psychotherapist. Before joining the Improving Lives team, Figs worked closely with children, teens, young adults, and their families in individual and group settings. Figs’ experience specialized her in working with clients who are in their transitioning and self-discovering years. Figs enjoys working with clients exploring and understanding their sexuality, gender, ethnic and racial identity, and working towards self-love. Identity is much more complex than how we label it, therefore an ongoing process. Figs implements cognitive-behavioral (CBT), feminist, and multicultural therapy when working with her clients, to meet them where they are at and move forward towards growth.
