My approach to individual, family and couple therapy is rooted in honesty and acceptance. I begin this process by providing a safe space and answering questions about the therapeutic process. I will collaborate with you to make treatment goals and we will discuss how to reach positive outcomes. Throughout this process, I will continuously get feedback from you to ensure you feel safe and invested in the process. I use mindfulness, emotion focused therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have training and certifications in Gottman-Method Level I, Functional Family Therapy, Alternatives for Families-CBT, Trauma Focused-CBT, and Motivational Interviewing.

Couples Speciality Services: I am available by request on the weekends to complete intensive Gottman-Method couple's half-day workshop. Please contact me at asands@claritynwi.com for more information.

Diagnostic Assessments. I conduct clinical supervision for therapist seeking clinical licensure. I hold an Indiana LCSW License: licensure number 3400789A.
