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.

Sandy was really great and helped me unlock the things I needed surrounding my relationship and dating patterns. In the period of time she was a great sounding board and also helped give me the thinking tools I needed to move forward in a better path. I definitely recommend Sandy and her open and direct approach -–she was wonderful!

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. She also provided worksheets to highlight strengths and bring attention to things I might need to work on. I would highly recommend her as a therapist!
