As a trauma therapist who provides all four trauma focused therapies (EMDR, CPT, PE, WET) your treatment is tailor fit to your specific needs.
Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

I offer CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and TF-CBT ( trauma focused ) treatment to help you identify how your thoughts impact your feelings and behavior.
If you're looking for a counselor who is laid back, open minded, and brings a sense of humor into sessions then look no further! My objective is to remove all the stigma and misleading ideas about therapy being stuffy and scary so that your therapeutic journey feels comfortable and completely safe. I typically see high-functioning individuals who are struggling with anxiety and/or perfectionism, relationship issues, women's issues/identity struggles, codependency concerns, major life transitions, and trauma/attachment wounding. My clients are typically motivated to make positive changes and have good personal insight.

As a clinician, I have had the privilege of working with clients from all walks of life. I have experience providing services for the treatment of substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma and loss, as well problems related to life changes. I've received training for batterer's intervention treatment, with two years of experience providing services to men seeking help addressing violence within their intimate relationships. I feel that counseling is most effective when the client and the clinician connect in a way that encourages honest feedback on both ends that promote growth and empowerment for the client.

I am a Faith Based (Catholic/Christian) License Professional Counselor. Certified in Trauma, Grief and Loss that loves working with Adolescents, Couples, Families and Individuals since 2004. I strongly believe that through our life our experiences may leave deep wounds that stop us from being loved by others and giving love to others. Through Therapy, one can begin to process these wounds, as a heart surgeon unclogs the arteries of the heart, and begin to feel like the loving individual that God created us to be and wants us to be

Life challenges are expected, but they can lead to feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and stuck. You may be seeking therapy for immediate relief, or for resolution of long-standing issues that are hindering you from experiencing a more fulfilling life. I utilize solution-focused interventions to maximize coping skills and address urgent concerns that may be interfering with your daily functioning. Exploring, addressing and resolving past issues, experiences, or traumatic events is also an important component of the therapeutic journey.

Emotions tend to be at their root of what concerns us. The fashion we act when our feelings are something we deny generally causes our dominant issues: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness. With reflection and foundational understanding we can begin growing towards a better life every day.

**PLEASE CHECK BACK. I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND CANNOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. THANK YOU.**When an atmosphere of trust and collaboration is created, healing can begin. My clients have shared with me that I am amicable and non-judgmental, warm hearted with a sense of humor and play. Within this space, clients who are learning to live with problems like a change in life, addiction or trauma can explore their life experiences, learn to use their current strengths and add new skills to move towards their goal. It takes time and patience, honesty and courage, plus support to look at one's self and stick with new thoughts and behaviors.

Depression, grief, anxiety can all happen for a wide variety of reasons, and there's no telling what might set any individual person down an emotionally unhealthy path. The important thing is to understand that there are a lot of people dealing with these issues and that it's okay to reach out for help. And when you do reach out, Michael Sanders LPC, NCC, will be here to take your hand and guide you. Psychotherapy is a collaboration between Therapist and client. With that in mind, my goal is to provide a comfortable, confidential atmosphere in which to work.

How engaged are you with life? How do you relate to those around you? These are questions I explore with my clients by allowing our relationship to guide the process. As Irvin Yalom very well stated, "Therapy should not be theory driven, but relationship driven." I am a firm believer of this sentiment; and will accompany you on what I believe is an on-going journey towards self-growth. Through a therapeutic relationship that is safe, genuine, and caring; I aim to guide my client towards insight that makes a path towards change, understanding, and/or acceptance more feasible.

Substance Abuse Assessments only! Virtual only. Recent events have had a major impact on us all. Social isolation, increased tensions, and financial difficulty, everyone seems to be struggling in some way. Alcohol, drugs, and pornography often seem like a good way to escape. Unfortunately, this can result in anxiety, depression, or loss of relationships. I offer a confidential and supportive space to talk with no judgement. I want you to discover what works for you and your journey!

What type of Metairie mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Metairie?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
