I am a licensed social worker in Arizona, Oregon, and New Mexico with 11 years of experience. I have experience with teens, families and the elder population with a wide range of concerns, including feelings related to a terminal disease, grief and loss, as well as relationship struggles. I have helped many families with parenting strategies, motivation, charts and rewards, parent-child issues and boundaries. My experience in hospice has afforded many years of assisting with grief and loss as well as coping with terminal illnesses and the losses and changes that ensue.
I walk alongside my clients during their journey providing strength based approaches. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral, client centered, solution focused, interpersonal, humanistic and mindfulness. My counseling style is calm and compassionate, taking a holistic view without judgement. Each walk of life is different and my counseling will reflect your goals and needs as an individual.
Recognizing that you can take a hold of your life and your future can provide a great sense of empowerment. Understanding and recognizing that caring and compassionate people are ready to walk beside you is the second best step you can take in your journey. When you are ready to take the first step, I am here to help support and empower you.

I feel very comfortable and safe when we talk. I think I am the person that needs more work on the relationship I can’t seem to find time and I know I need to
Kandice wonderfully balances making me feel heard and listened to while also providing new ideas and resources to work on improving or helping the wide variety of struggles I come to the session with. Just a couple months in, and I am feeling so good with all the progress I've made. I have full confidence that Kandice would support me and help me with anything I came to the session with. Kandice always responds quickly, check ins with me through out the week, and overall has made this experience much easier.
Kandice has given me a lot to think about and I've only had 2 sessions with her. I am looking forward to working with her more and finding my way to where I want to be. I believe she will help me get there.
Kandice is an amazing counselor. She has helped me get through a very difficult period of transition in my life! I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of some help! ☺️
Kandice talked over with me the loss of my mom, how to deal with grief, and anxiety and emotional triggers. She is SO helpful and goes above and beyond. She sent me tons of worksheets on things I was interested in improving and also would talk over those topics with me. I really feel that she genuinely cares! I find myself very calm in speaking to her and she has very healing vibes. I would recommend her to anyone in need of therapy.
Kandice has been very helpful in guiding me on the journey to be mindful about my emotional triggers and managing my response.
She did what she can but I feel like she needs to be there like when my massage gets through and she answers right away like me venting to her. When I am sad I need to vent at that moment I don't get that right away.
Kandice has been so kind and helpful in the sessions we have had. She listens carefully and gives great advice and tools to help me figure out how to fix my problems.
Kandice was an immediate help - just her deliverance, and expertise has been immense in such a short time. As someone who was apprehensive about counseling, Kandice immediately had me excited to get to talk to her each session and work through my problems. She’s made this all easier than I could’ve ever imagined.
Kandice is the best therapist I’ve ever had, and I’m pretty picky and have gone through quite a few. Not only does she respond in a timely manner, but once I sent a message at around 11pm and she messaged me back at midnight. She goes above and beyond for her patients and constantly makes sure I am comfortable with what we’re doing and what my goals are. She is an amazing help.
