Counseling with Sandi
Connection is a Key Ingredient to Healing
I believe in human connection and the therapeutic relationship are significant agents for change. When working with me I will teach you to understand your emotions, thoughts and behavior. I hope to help you understand why you behave in certain ways, how those are helpful and harmful. I also hope to help you understand and take steps to make changes in behavior, thinking and emotions that are more adaptive.
I will teach you about your brain, how it works and how to best take care of it so it takes care of you.
I will teach you how to take care of your brain so that it will take care of you.
I will teach you about mental/emotional health, spiritual health and what it means to have freedom in these areas.
I will show you how to enjoy the journey of life and I will teach you how to manage daily life stressors, major life events, and prevent falling back into unhealthy behaviors, and thinking patterns.
I will always be present and listen to you, show you how to view problems from multiple angles, and help you thrive in relationships that may have seemed broken.
I will help you rise up and learn to love yourself, love others and love life.
I will implement interventions to help you based on evidenced based practices; the interventions that research has shown to be the most effective.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor I am committed to the well-being of everyone who enters my door.
I enjoy the journey of going above and beyond to learn how to work effectively to make life lasting positive changes in the lives of each one of you.
I am confident change is possible because I have experienced it for myself and I have seen it happen with so many people.
I have struggled just like you, and so I see you, I get you and I am here to help you navigate freedom from the chains that bind you, and I am excited for our journey together.
I truly care for all of those who seek wellness while working with me, and I promise to work diligently to help find the answers for your wellness.
Since 2006, I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives. I have grown in my experiences and am truly thankful for each and every client I have had the opportunity to encounter. My most recent 6 years have been working with those struggling with addiction as a primary issue, but also secondary trauma and and mental health concerns. In the residential addiction world I worked with family conflict, relationship struggles, co-dependency, spirituality struggles just to name a few.
Prior to that I worked with parents involved with child welfare, and prior to that I worked with acute psychiatric in/outpatient mental health/substance abuse clients in a community mental health facility.
