Sara Shaver, LMFT, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, practicing for over 25 years. Sara first worked as an in-home family therapist in rural Wisconsin. It was at that job in 1996 she was first introduced to the wraparound process. Using a wraparound process “just makes sense” and she incorporates that way of thinking in her therapy work and working in various programs.
In 2010 she became a co-founder of Compass Counseling LLC, a private mental health clinic that serves people of all ages. Sara specializes in grief, trauma and couples work.
As a presenter and trainer for White Pine, Sara brings the unique perspective of having served in most roles associated with a wraparound project. She began as a Care Coordinator and then Project Coordinator. She helped five counties in the state initiate and maintain their programs until they were running smoothly. Sara has been a supervisor to Care Coordinators and teams. Sara has been a trainer/presenter for White Pine, on and off, since 2002. In 2019 Sara became even more involved in trainings, being one of two main trainers for the fundamental and advanced workshops. She continues to train and help in writing wraparound workshop curriculums. She currently serves on teams for her clients and has been serving on the CST/CCS Coordinating Committee in her county since 2011.
She is often found juggling her various roles in community committees, teaching faith formation, singing in a choir, chairing Music Boosters, and being a core-team member for the local chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace. All of this becomes second to her most prized role - working with her husband in raising their three teenagers.
