Do you need a little more support and structure in your life? I run a variety of high energy groups to help keep you on track, including "I Hate Weekends" (a Sunday support group for people who tend to isolate on the weekends), "You Can't Stop The Waves, But You Can Learn To Surf" (a cognitive therapy group for depression and anxiety), and "Back to Life, Back to Reality" (a life transition group). It's amazing what can happen when people stop being polite and start getting real...
I am trained in multiple modalities including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, and psychodynamic therapy. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, substance use, bipolar disorder, sleep disorders, and issues surrounding gender and sexuality. I also founded MySoberRoommate.com, a website that helps people in recovery find sober roommates.
In addition to running groups, I am also an individual primary therapist. I have a straightforward and laid back approach to therapy. I can help you learn to manage life's inevitable difficulties by empowering you to enact lasting and positive change.

Jesse B. Sandler's Groups

I Hate Weekends

Due to their unstructured nature, weekends can be a difficult time for many people in recovery from depression, anxiety or substance abuse. The "I Hate Weekends" group is an ongoing weekly therapy group that meets on Sundays to provide the support and structure needed to keep you on track and make your weekends better.

More about this group

Back to Life, Back to Reality

The "Back to Life. Back to Reality" group is a rolling 8 week group that helps you build a strong foundation for re-entry into "real life." Skills we cover include distress tolerance, life balance, time management, self-esteem building, interpersonal effectiveness, goal setting, anger management, cognitive awareness, mindfulness, sleep hygiene, and relapse prevention.
