My name is Sabra House.  I graduated from Smith College and earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University.  I spent two years as a hospital social worker, working with cancer patients and their families.  I was a therapist in Flint Michigan for 10 years before moving to Arizona. 

In 1991, I created the Lighthouse Center, and have been providing psychotherapy to patients valley-wide ever since.  Recently, I was hired to provide on-site counseling for associates at Scottsdale Insurance Company.

I have written a book entitled, Who's Walking Around in Your Head with Muddy Boots?  It's a self-help book based on years of practice.  Many of my patients say that they can hear my voice as they are reading it and that it helps.  I'm working on a new book entitled, The Muddy Boot of Life.  A book about losses and how to recover.

I also volunteer for two hospices with my Cairn terrier, Oz, doing pet visits to group homes, memory care facilities and hospice in-patient units.

I love to travel and usually plan several trips each year.

Please see the photos from my recent trips at the bottom of this page.
