Hi!  My name is Sandra and I am a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor. I graduated from Loyola Marymount University and received a Master of Arts in Counseling with an emphasis in mental health. I currently attend Alliant International University and am enrolled in the PsyD Couples and Family Therapy program. 

As a mental health professional, I have gained experience working with children, families, adolescents and individuals in schools and substance abuse treatment centers. I am bilingual, fluent in English and Spanish, and have received training in: Triple P (Positive Parenting), TF-CBT, CBITS (Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools), MAP, suicide and self-harm behaviors. 

 My treatment approaches are Bowen Family Systems and CBT. I believe in developing a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and their families (immediate and/or extended) to understand what brings them to therapy.  I understand that sharing your experiences will be difficult, but I am more than willing to listen, support, challenge and encourage you through this step in your life. 

Treatment Approaches:

  • Family Systems
  •  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  •  Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
