Zara A. Sayles

Director

Forensic and Clinical Psychiatry

Zara is our Director who joined the practice after a long trip from Pittsburgh to Seattle in the fall of 2019. Zara graduated from The Pennsylvania State University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation and Human Services and a minor in English. Her studies at Penn State are what brought her to her particular interest in the intersection between mental health and the law.

Before her move to Seattle, Zara worked as the Director of a Clubhouse Model mental health program. While in that position, she held adjacent titles as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work and Co-Chair of the Sally and Howard Levin Clubhouse Advisory Board. Her favorite part of those roles was the amount of education and guidance that she was able to spread to people just stepping into the field. She traveled to many national and international conferences to present on issues such as inclusion and equality for people living with mental illness while also mentoring students in social work, counseling, and other healthcare-related programs.

Zara had been eager to shift gears to a more dynamic and impactful part of healthcare for quite some time. She viewed her move to Seattle as an excellent opportunity to cross utilize her skills set and expand her knowledge of recovery combined with justice. Zara’s passion for behavioral health and belief in recovery are what have prepared her to be a part of something bigger than she could ever imagine.

In her spare time, you can find Zara traveling, experimenting in the kitchen, strolling a beach, hiking, or relaxing with her cats.
