ABOUT HEAD/HEART THERAPY

Head/Heart Therapy provides a foundation of serenity, understanding and balance. Our therapists offer a unique set of skills to provide integrative, holistic care in a healing environment.
Sarah Buino, LCSW, CADC, CDWF founded Head/Heart Therapy, Inc. in 2014. After working for several years at respected social service agencies around Chicago, Sarah envisioned creating a new group practice that would be a welcoming place where clients can feel free to show up authentically and creatively however they so desire. Head/Heart’s vision is a reflection of Sarah’s own philosophy and personal experiences of living a rich, examined and sometimes untraditional life outside the box. Head/Heart Therapy’s name even comes from a tattoo Sarah has on her right arm as it serves as a constant reminder of Sarah’s approach to therapy – finding the key to connect the head to the heart. Years later, as Sarah was cleaning out some old files, she found her notes from Brené Brown’s Connections training in 2012 where she’d written “head/heart” across the top of one of the pages. Clearly, Head/Heart Therapy was meant to be.
It was at that same 2012 training where Sarah first met Robert Hilliker. Sarah and Robert became friends and over time realized their shared passion for helping people who struggle with addiction and mental health. Today, their partnership has helped Head/Heart Therapy grow to offer intensive outpatient services modeled on the Pathos Program at The Lovett Center in Houston, TX.
