Sara Brugioni, LCSW, PMH-C 

Sara Brugioni is a LCSW in the state of Illinois, practicing for 15+ years. She holds an undergraduate degree in Social Work from Illinois State University as well as a Master’s in Social Work from Aurora University. 


Sara’s career began working in a therapeutic school as a family therapist in the south side of Chicago where she focused on in-home support for families in addition to seeing students individually and in groups.  She later transitioned to a middle school social worker role, working with evidence-based curriculums such as Zones of Regulation, Social Thinking and Everyday Speech. She has extensive experience in behavioral therapy working with families, emerging adults, at-risk youth and children with anxiety, depression and attention difficulties.


Sara is a Perinatal Mental Health Certified Therapist. Sara has a passion for helping women navigate the challenges of women’s mental health and reproductive mental health. Becoming and being a parent can come with many challenges. Between infertility, pregnancy loss, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and other isolating challenges, knowing when to reach out for support can be difficult but crucial. Finding time for yourself to share your struggles with a supportive, well-trained clinician can be a gift to yourself and your partner.


Sara has worked in schools and homes, all of which inform her lens of the world and approach toward her clients and students. Sara understands the unique challenges that life presents at different stages and offers a warm, non-judgmental space to work collaboratively toward her client’s goals. It is Sara’s privilege and joy to help her clients become their most authentic selves.
