I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with a specialization in clinical practice. I have been a social worker for over 10 years and I have experience providing therapy services to individuals, groups, and families. I have worked with many people experiencing life transitions, coping with the effects of trauma, and who are living with grief and loss. I have also worked with many people who are survivors of domestic violence and other forms of abuse. In addition, I have extensive experience with helping people cope with stress and anxiety.
Some counseling approaches I often use are cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic therapy. At the forefront of my practice is the respect for the dignity and worth of each individual. I am an excellent listener who has a non-judgmental approach to my interaction with others.
I know that seeking help can be a difficult experience, but I do my best to help you navigate through your healing journey. Congratulations on taking the first step to becoming happy, healthy and whole! I look forward to working with you.

I have been in therapy for years and have not made the kind of progress I have after less than six months working with Chandra. She always responds quickly with insightful advice and relevant worksheets. We create goals and each week set small and realistic ways to achieve them. Chandra has identified substantial growth opportunities and I am thankful for all the good things she has helped me with over the course of our weekly sessions.

Chandra has already been such a kind, understanding, compassionate, transformative agent of change in my life. She’s helping me see through the fog about some of the ways I behave and is a guiding light helping me push through years and years of trauma that, before her, I never even felt comfortable discussing. A voice of clarity; confidence; and strong intuition in what’s been one long tunnel of my own confusion coping mechanisms; and survival modes; Chandra’s helping me heal rather than slap bandaids on things with both a solutions-based approach while also helping me process the dark stuff. I never could have imagined, in such a short time, I would find someone like her. I’m truly grateful. It hasn’t been long but am I ever looking forward to working with her for the long haul and letting the healing in finally. I hope everyone is as lucky to have someone like Chandra.
