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 is like talking to a friend. She offers a variety of ways to help you through your concerns. There is no pressure to share, but she welcomes it and let’s you lead. Has been extremely helpful for me in talking through personal issues.

I have truly enjoyed my sessions with Cassandra. She Listens to me, has an open mind to find solutions and thinks of alternative points of view or new techniques I really like and enjoy trying. Especially with issues I didn’t think there were other possible solutions for. She’s empathetic while also being honest. We talk about marriage, life, career, kids, discipline, and she has great expertise and input on it all, Thank you ❤️

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
