Emily Sands is a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (LAMFT), who specializes in working with couples, teenagers, and individuals. Emily understands the importance of connection and acknowledges that change is the driving force of life. Emily does not view herself as the expert of her clients’ lives; instead, she views herself as the expert of change. She believes that we all have the capacity to arrive at our own solutions, yet sometimes, we may need support and guidance. She uses a strengths-based, interactive, and direct approach to help clients recognize and transform some negative, unhelpful beliefs they hold.
Emily is a certified Prepare-Enrich Facilitator and has experience providing pre-marital counseling. She uses Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy, two evidence-based treatment modalities, when working with couples. Emily is passionate about her work with teenagers and young adults, as these life phases are filled with discovery.
Emily's use of humor, coupled with her direct approach, allows her clients to view themselves, and their lives, from a different perspective. Relationship dynamics are no hurdle for Emily, as she calmly dives into tangled systems and helps to dismantle tension, increase communication, and build trust.
