Calm Creek Mental Health Coaching is located along Roaring Creek in rural Catawissa, PA. We have several acres of woods, a pond, the creek, a healing studio, and many other areas on our property to hold your session or event. 

What is the difference between coaching and counseling?

  • Coaching focuses solely on the present and future. Counseling focuses on past, present, and future.

  • Coaching encourages IMMEDIATE action.

  • Coaching is typically short-term. Counseling can be long term, sometimes lasting for years.

  • ​Counselors treat a DIAGNOSABLE mental health illness. Coaches cannot diagnose or provide clinical treatment for a diagnosable condition.


Sarah Dobeck Troutman

Since childhood, I knew I would work in the healing profession. This has always been my calling. I have dedicated most of my adult life to learning about the areas of social/emotional/behavioral health for both youth and adults. I have a variety of degrees, certifications, and trainings featured below. I have worked in the human services field for the last 10+ years including inpatient and outpatient treatment, dual-diagnosis, prevention, education, intervention, and advocacy. I live as a person with a mental health disorder, as a family member of someone with severe addiction, and became a widow at the age of 30. This combination of both personal and professional experience combined with my intense passion for helping others has allowed me to become a leader in the social/emotional/behavioral field in our local community.
