Hi, I’m Sandy! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in working with families, adolescents, and children navigating parenting and life’s challenges.
Throughout my training and experience, I have provided individual, group, and family counseling in drug and alcohol treatment, community, and child welfare settings. I work from a client-centered approach and consider myself a guest on your journey to hope, wellness, and strength.
I specialize in family therapy for families experiencing stressors, including parenting, depression, anxiety, and substance use. I have extensive training in Functional Family Therapy for Child Welfare, and am an accredited provider of Level 4 Standard Triple P Positive Parenting Program and a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist. Throughout my work, I utilize solution-focused interventions, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) techniques to meet the needs of my clients.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, including our teenage son and two rescue cats, travel, jigsaw puzzles, and reading.
