Hi I’m Sandra, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
I work with individuals, couples/families and groups to provide treatment and rehabilitation for a wide range of life situations and mental health issues.
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches suited to each person. I create a holding space for pain, joy, thoughts and emotions, and whatever you bring to me.
You will be heard and supported as we embark on a joint venture where we may uncover and connect dots, gain better understandings and/or find successful ways to cope and navigate more optimally in life.
As well, I am here to assist with symptom relief and specific strategies to address immediate concerns and goals.
My style is warm and relational, enabling me to provide support as things are faced.
I am currently working with adults.
I have worked with children, adolescents and their families and have ran parenting groups, as well as groups with other areas of focus.
I work with couples and individuals struggling with relationship issues, which is an area of great interest to me.
I’ve had much success in treating anxieties, panic attacks, OCD-related issues, and depressive moods.
I work with those who struggle with managing emotions and/or experience mood disturbances.
I help folks work through loss and gains as well as stress management and goal attainment.
I am EMDR- trained and am passionate with working with trauma.
Therapy with me exceeds the notion of just having talks or conversation. You are taking a step in creating a more content, healthier, more insightful you and it would be my pleasure to help you in this process.

She has a warm heart, she is not judgmental. She actually hears what you have to say and expresses how she feels about the situation but helps guide you as well. I love her. She has been helping me so much. She gets back to me as fast as she can. I hope to keep her as a counselor for awhile. Definitely a good listener even if you just need someone to listen. She's great!!!
