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!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues

I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, ADHD

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.
