I am licensed behavioral health therapist with 21 years experience. I live in a small town in Washington state. I am 68 years old and chose to postpone my career in counseling until after my five children were older.
Currently, I do not counsel men. My interest is helping women with their challenges at all stages of life. My approach to life is Christian based. I have experience with parenting issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship stressors, abuse and PTSD.
I believe people need to be able to tell their own story to someone willing to listen, care and understand their unique experiences and challenges. My clinical approach combines client- centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-based and family systems therapy.
I look forward to hearing your story.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Sexual Assault and Abuse
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Existential Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Sandra helped walk me through a really tough season of life. She helped me rationalize the things that I was giving my anxious energy to, and give me tools to work through stuff and cope in a healthy way. I am thankful for her support!

I was never seen and never received therapy and stop it in writting! None of the appointments were being picked up by my phone, an iphone 14. I cannot believe what I am seeing with the on going bill!!!! When was I ever active? Never!!! How many times was I offered more sessions and I declined, at least three times.
I can not believe this just as I heard from my X that you folks do zoom on the computer and I did not need to rely on my i phone.
I am shocked!!
