Hi there!

My name is Sara Balkanli Watkins. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, and the owner of Sunstone Psychotherapy, PLLC.

I know how much courage and vulnerability it takes to seek out counseling. You are incredibly brave to take this step & I am grateful for you! 

I hold many roles in my life - daughter, friend, wife, dog mom, coffee aficionado, encourager, advocate… but the role I hold closest to my heart is therapist. My passion is walking through life with others and holding space for all of the complex experiences life has to offer. 

I encourage you to explore my website for more information about my story, fees, services, and approach to therapy.
