Kandice Cowherd


About Me

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.

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.
