Thank you for clicking on my profile link and expressing interest in getting to know me as a clinician on BetterHelp. My name is Magalis Sandoval, but you may call me Maggie. I have been working in the field of mental health and addiction as a licensed clinical social worker since 2011, but have been working in the human services field since 2006 with at-risk youth and survivors of domestic violence. In 2007 I started my journey working in a residential substance abuse program and since then I have been inspired while working with patients who have successfully made positive changes in their lives.
My goal during therapy is to help increase self-awareness and insight into the relationship between the individual's thinking and behaviors. I incorporate mindfulness based techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice and have witnessed immediate positive outcomes when dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction and symptoms of PTSD. I recently acquired my certification as an anger management specialist, and genuinely enjoy helping people develop techniques that allow them the opportunity to manage their anger in healthy and productive ways.
I look forward to working with you and providing you the support you are seeking at this time. I believe in the power of motivation and hope, and am confident that together we can take small steps towards a happier and healthier future.

Magalis has been an integral part of my self care this year. She has offered around the clock access every day, all day. Her support has gotten me through a very difficult time and I am happy to say I went through the issues not around them . I have healed emotionally. I am grateful.
Magalis was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. I truly appreciated her listening skills as well as her communication skills. I felt heard, validated and always had something I could work towards.
The best counsellor I have ever had in a very long time. She's very attentive and really want the best for her clients.
I really like Magalis. She’s the first person I’ve told some things and I didn’t feel judged. A weight has been lifted off my chest because of her.
Very good councillor, listened to my problem, and helped me feel better about myself.
Magalis is a great counselor. She listens and is attentive. She’s also very insightful and knowledgeable. She has helped me, tremendously. I look forward to continued sessions with her.
Magalis is wonderful, she is a straight-shooter and will not sugarcoat anything. I have learned a lot from our brief conversations so far, and I hope to continue. I definitely recommend.
This is my first time being in therapy since I was a child. I truthfully was extremely nervous, but she’s been wonderful. I feel like I can be open and honest and that I’m not being judged - but that someone really DOES want to help me (also help me help myself.) I’m really thankful and I’m excited to continue my journey of bettering myself.
She is a good listener and does gives good advice.
Very happy to have met someone who listens and puts forth practical options and suggestions without judgement. I feel as though I am in a safe zone with her. I highly recommend Magalis Sandoval for those who need someone to listen and offer professional guidance.
