About Me

Hello and Welcome!
My name is Lorinda Sanders and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) practicing in Idaho and Oregon. I have been practicing in the clinical social work field for 21 years. I graduated from Walla Walla University with a Master in Social Work in 2000. I have worked with a multitude of populations include adolescents, teenagers, adults, and geriatrics. My experience includes working with individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, career challenges, LGBTQ, relational conflict, grief and loss, and adjustment/transitional challenges.

I use a number of therapeutic techniques depending on what works for the individual I am working with. . I utilize acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing, relaxation techniques, strength-based approaches, and solution focused techniques. The most important part of counseling is developing trust and confidence in the therapeutic. relationship. I am committed to helping you reach your full potential. We will start where you are and work towards the goals you want to achieve together. I look forward to working with you and assisting you in meeting your therapeutic goals.

Respectfully,
Lorinda Sanders, LCSW

Lorinda is extremely swift at responding and took time to understand my goals. I had one main goal with therapy and it was completely achieved! Lorinda helped me map out my words and gave me insight and advise. I would recommend Lorinda to my best friends

Lorinda is amazing she listens well and makes you feel seen. I feel like I just blab the entire time but then when we’re done I feel so much better! She is not judge mental and says exactly what you need to hear.

I share my experience with everyone I know and let them know if they need a good therapist go to Betterhelp. It is really great because starting out you ask a lot of question making sure you get the right therapist. I am so lucky to have a wonderful therapist like Lorinda Sanders. I also tell them to be honest when answering the questions. Working with Lorinda has been the best for my mental health.

Lorinda is without compare. She not only is the best therapist I've ever had, she's also the best human being.

Lorinda Sanders is by far my best counselor yet. We have had a few sessions together and I feel as if I can tell her everything without judgment. She helps me accept myself and to have confidence in my opinion over others. I am lucky to have paired with her to start.

Although I was only able to have a couple sessions with Lorinda, she was nothing but amazing. She helped me through some pretty tough day to day issues I was going through at the time and I learned sososo much from her in such a little amount of time.

Work with me!
