Cassandra Sams

LMHC, LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, young adults and their families. I spent 2 years of my career working at a Children's Advocacy Center, 7 years working in an Adolescent treatment facility, 6 years in private practice, and 2 years in a family counseling center. I have helped others with a wide range of challenges such as anxiety and depression, self-injurious behaviors, low self-esteem, co-dependency concerns, sexual trauma, as well as relationship concerns amongst couples and amongst family members. I have a Specialist in Education degree from Georgia State University and I am Licensed to practice in both Georgia and Florida.

When working with clients I use a blend of cognitive-behavioral approaches as well as reality therapy and humanistic approaches. You will find that I enjoy the creative processes as well and may encourage clients to engage in art therapy techniques in order to stimulate a different way of thinking about life's challenges. My goal for clients is for them to feel safe and to feel heard when they meet with me.

Clients are the experts on their life obstacles and I view myself as merely a witness to the client's strength and resourcefulness as they overcome these obstacles. It is my sincerest desire to simply be a guide on the route to wholeness.

Sandy has been compassionate and so caring. I’m so glad to have met her, I’m sorry it had to be through therapy but she’s such a nice woman. It’s very clear that she is a well-educated professional, and I always appreciate her follow up.

Sandy has been very helpful and helping me resolve my issues. She is very nice, respectful and funny. Sometimes, she makes me laugh out loud. And that is definitely something I need. I highly recommend Sandy for anyone
