Hello and welcome to BetterHelp! I am a Licensed Master's Level graduate of Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM). I have worked with individuals (adolescents and adults), couples, and families in several different non-clinical and clinical settings including residential and intensive outpatient in both non-profit and private facilities.
My specialties include treating individuals with communication issues, intimacy-related issues, depression, stress and anxiety, low self-esteem, ADD/ADHD, family conflict, relationship issues, death of a loved one, substance use/abuse. As your therapist, we go through your journey together to decrease and/or eliminate distress of your mind and within your relationships through "talk therapy". My approach to your treatment depends on your goals for therapy and the issue(s) that you present. At times, we delve in your family background and how you were raised as a child and into your past relationships as I have found that what's going on presently is a direct result of unresolved issues from the past. At other times, there is just a need to find a solution and/or come to a resolution of an issue.
I utilize several treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Motivational Interviewing, and Family Systems Approach.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!

LPC #8598 (Expires: 2022-07-31)
A few months ago I had a nervous breakdown, stress and work got on top of me and I couldn’t even leave the house. Since then, I’ve made some massive changes in my Life and Cassandra has helped me through each one.
Her style is great, very supportive but not overbearing. Cassandra has helped me to build my confidence and have some truly amazing realisations about my childhood, my present and my future.
I don’t think I would be as happy and able to do things now, if I hadn’t of taken her support those months ago. Thank you <3
My time with Cassandra has been LIFE-CHANGING. I’ve gone through probably a dozen counselors before BetterHelp paired me with her. Before her, I was discouraged and felt unfixable. I never knew that anyone could understand what I’m going through, but she has been absolutely amazing. I tend to have a concrete wall up around pretty much everyone, but Cassandra has been able to chip away at my layers and really understand me from the core. We get to the root of things to understand why I think certain ways or do certain things. I don’t know how I functioned without her! On top of that, religion is typically a taboo thing to discuss with my friends because I’m friends with people from a variety of religious backgrounds, but I’m able to freely discuss my Christian views with Cassandra, and she’s able to support me spiritually as well. Can’t recommend her enough!
Cassandra has been a delight to work with. She’s offered gentle and understanding company during my tough time.
I really liked that she would listen to me and I’ll definitely be back and choose her as my counselor again!
Cassandra is the absolute best! She is so helpful, understanding, and non-judgmental. Her expertise is evident when talking with her, yet she makes you feel comfortable and at ease at the same time. 10/10 would recommend to ANYONE!
Cassandra is very attentive and patient. I was able to talk about my problems and never had a fear of being judged. It was super helpful to have a fresh perspective on what was going on in my mind. It was easy to talk to her and I always felt supported.
Cassandra is great. I have had trouble with my aggressive behavior and dealing with my anger appropriately. Cassandra has helped me understand my aggressive actions in their context, and led me to realize how inappropriate they really were ( which was causing me some confusion before). She has given me useful concepts to help me learn about and manage my own anger responses and set me on a path towards relying less on aggressive behavior.
In our sessions she comes off as really genuine and empathetic. I feel very comfortable discussing my issues with her. She also has a really awesome accent. I would strongly recommend her to anyone concerned about how their aggression could be affecting their relationships.
