About Me

Hi. My name is Sandra DeCarolis and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor in Colorado. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from CU Denver and a Master’s degree in Community Counseling from Regis University in Denver. I am also a Certified Trauma Informed Care Practitioner. I have worked with a variety of clients including school aged children, teens/ adolescents, and adults that present with a variety of issues and concerns including but not limited to: trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar and mood disorders. Sometimes my clients have substance use and mental health issues. Or, they may be dealing with communication, self-esteem or social anxiety problems.

I am integrative in my approach to therapy in that I utilize Person Centered, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies to assist during the sessions; whatever feels appropriate. My treatment approach is based first, on developing a therapeutic relationship with the client that has its foundation in trust. I will also utilize your strengths to help you achieve your desired changes and treatment goals.

I believe people have enormous potential and it is my desire to help them achieve the happiness, wholeness and the balance they desire in their lives by facilitating awareness and by introducing them to a variety of coping skills that they can utilize in times of duress.

I applaud your courage for reaching out for assistance and I look forward to witnessing your healing and evolution.

Having sessions with Sandra was wonderful. They really helped me to push through my own mental barricades and improve my quality of life. Speaking with Sandra was always beneficial and I felt like I always walked away feeling better about myself and any issues I was having.

Written by L.I. on Mar 18, 2021 after therapy with Sandra for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I loved working with Sandy, talking with her every week has been such a huge help! I had been struggling with my anxiety and stress for months, and after the first session with Sandy I felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. From the start it felt like I was talking with a lifelong friend, which was such a huge relief as I have never worked with a therapist before and didn't know what to expect! I've discovered a few different stress management techniques since we've been meeting, and I feel like I've really worked through the main causes of my anxiety. I can truly say my life is better now that I've worked with Sandy!

Sandra has been a world of help for me. We have only had 2 sessions so far but she is working with me to get to the root of my anxiety. I truly look forward to our video sessions and her helping me break through.

Sandy is someone who values helping people. Every session I've had with her has proven to me that she is a counselor for all the right reasons. She is genuine, supportive, and relatable. I always look forward to hearing how she will bring perspective to things I'm struggling with. And, when there are days I feel like I'm not struggling with many things, I simply look forward to seeing her smile and talking to her about her day.

Sandy was a great therapist, she listened to me attentively and gave me thoughtful feedback and insight throughout our sessions that was extremely helpful for me.
