About me

Hello!

Thank you for sharing information about the challenges that you are facing. I'm happy that you have begun the first steps on a healthy and positive journey of healing and wellness in your life.

Please take a look at my profile for more information about my background, education, experience, and counseling approach by clicking on my name above our messages. I generally check messages here a few times per day Mon-Fri. and respond as quickly as I can. I do appreciate your patience when it takes longer to respond to your message as I may be working with other clients or engaged in personal responsibilities.
I approach counseling from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. I assist clients in understanding how thoughts and feelings influence behaviors. Patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that interfere with present functioning are examined. Various other perspectives and strategies are used based on the client's individual issues and needs.

My goal and hope in working together are to help you to improve the quality of your relationship by dealing with issues in ways that support you to grow as individuals and as a couple. I want to encourage you to think about 2 to 3 goals that you would like to work toward. You can see available times to schedule on the left-hand side of your sessions page under my photo and name. I have set time slots as "Open" on my schedule for the week which means that the time slot is available. The scheduler is currently formatted in 30-minute increments, however, if you want an hour-long session, please let me know so that I can leave the next 30-minute block unavailable.
I look forward to working with you and appreciate that you value your marriage and want to resolve issues that are causing conflicts in your relationship.

Be well,
Sandra(M.Ed, LPC, LMFT)

I had some reservations about virtual therapy and even up until the 3rd appointment, I wasn’t sure this was for me(us) but I feel like once we broke the ice, we have had some really great sessions. l already feel like we are using some of the tools we have been given.

Exactly who we needed in a therapist. She listens well and does not hesitate to point out the issues she sees with both partners, as well as offer easy to apply strategies.

I am very pleased with our therapy sessions. Ms. Sandra has a calming, genuine spirit. She is very patient, a great listener, and knows how to hear us explain something and puts it in a more clear and concise way for better understanding. She acknowledges our thoughts/feelings and paraphrases for clearer communication with our partner. She gives us room to fully express ourselves, she asks for deeper explanations for a clearer picture. After each session, I feel relieved that I was able to address everything I felt was important that day and felt like I was actually heard and a weight lifted. Looking forward to the practical work now that she has a better view of our relationship dynamics and issues.

Excellent Counselor!!!! Very good listener and gives great strategies for self improvement.

Written on Feb 14, 2021 after therapy with Sandra for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Great counselor and ever better person. Had a poor experience with the first counselor I was assigned, but Sandra had a far more compassionate and professional demeanor. The relationship was quite toxic and in a relatively short time respect, communication and validation were reincorporated back into the dynamic. She's like that wise auntie that you run to when you have a problem; not because she solves it for you, but because she teaches you how to step back, take a moment and work it out for yourself with guidance and a trusted sounding board. She helps you face your truths in practical, sustainable ways.

Sandra has been a big help for us. I hope she continues to offer her much needed talent to every couple in need.

Written on Nov 14, 2020 after therapy with Sandra for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

Sandra was a fantastic counselor. Very nice and helpful. Me and my significant other were close to ending our relationship and with her help things have gotten better. She also helped us with personal growth. She is always there to listen and offer advice. Every week I asked her to add a half hour to our session she did it for us. She has been excellent and if it wasnt for financial constraints we would probably continue to see her every week. She would do personal sessions with us as needed as well. She was very flexible with us. We will miss her alot.
