Providing psychotherapy to clients from any background and situation, Sarah Voruz, PsyD and Kezia Zamora, MA are here to guide individuals and couples ever nearer to themselves. Clients of either counselor float at the member rate of $49.
Sarah Voruz, PsyD
Sarah Voruz, PsyD, provides holistic mental health treatment and collaborates with her clients to address their unique needs. Working from a contemporary Gestalt therapy orientation, she helps clients increase self awareness to give them more choices in their lives and address both short- and long-term issues. Therapy focuses on whatever is most relevant in that moment, including emotions, behaviors, thoughts, and interpersonal patterns. Dr. Voruz is committed to creating a safe space for her clients to explore themselves and confront the barriers to making changes in their lives. She welcomes clients from all backgrounds.
Dr. Voruz enjoys working with a diversity of emotional and relationship issues. She works with individuals and hopes to create group therapy experiences in the near future. She has particular knowledge and experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, emotional and physical abuse, identity issues (including sexual identity), and self-criticism. Her thesis and dissertation focused on self-compassion, which she often brings into her clinical work.
Dr. Voruz grew up in Wisconsin and completed her BA at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She earned her Masters of Science and Doctorate of Psychology in clinical psychology at Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR.
Dr. Voruz is excited to explore the interplay of floating and psychotherapy and hopes to collaborate with the Float Shoppe to scientifically research its effects. Clients do not need to be using other Float Shoppe services to see Dr. Voruz, though her clients can float for a reduced cost. Dr. Voruz is in-network with Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, and PacificSource. Read more about Dr. Voruz at www.phoenixrisingpsychology.com.

An avid yogi and musician in her personal life, she has advanced training in art, music, and play therapies as well as trauma-informed yoga therapy and reiki.
