I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community because I am part of that community. You should never have to educate, defend or explain your identity to your therapist and you should never have to worry about having that identity invalidated. You are more than your gender and orientation but those identities need to be affirmed. My focus as your therapist is to give you the tools you need to have just one day where you are not overwhelmed with anxiety, fear, shame- whatever it is that feels like it's consuming you. One day where you can wake up in the morning and live. Then, I want to help you make that one day every day.

Being a new parent, no matter how you came into the role, can be difficult. It’s not unusual to experience feelings of sadness, anger, irritability, or intrusive, unsettling thoughts. My goal is to give you a safe place to vent your feelings, and work through your specific challenges in order to come to a happier place in your life, and love yourself for the awesome person you are. I have speciality training working with Postpartum depression and anxiety from Postpartum Support International, and I come to session as a fellow birthing person/parent who can empathize with your experience.

Emotions can be hard, life can be hard, dealing with trauma, depression and anxiety is hard, dealing with chronic pain is hard. So many things that we have to navigate in life can feel overwhelming and the struggle can feel unwinnable. You don’t have to do it alone! We can work together to make a plan for making sure you have the tools you need to deal with any situation that arises in life, the big and the small and everything in between. I am a compassionate understanding open minded person who approaches mental health treatment through a trauma informed lens.

Has the state of the world left you freaking exhausted? Do you drag yourself through your days at work or school with a fake smile on your face? Do you spend more of your free time than you'd like either stuck in a blanket burrito listening to Bo Burnham's "Inside" on repeat and drinking too much or catering to everyone's needs but your own?

Are you someone who knows nothing is working? Someone who feels like no matter what they try, their pain seems to keep getting worse? Pain can come in many different forms from anxiety, sadness and low self esteem to obsessions, bad body image, trauma and many others. Pain does not discriminate, and neither should treatment. My ideal client is willing to have an open and honest discussion with me and, more importantly, themselves about what they can do to move forward towards what they care about, whatever that may be! If we work together, you and I would figure out what your values are, and develop skills to achieve them.

My experience with working with clients of a variety of ages and needs has contributed to a passion in treating clients with trauma histories and rocky transitions. Most of my experience has been with children, adolescents, and adults who have experienced trauma in their past and are wanting to move forward in their lives to meet their goals. So often, anxiety, mood swings, and depression are tied to these trauma histories. Moving forward can bring much freedom and relief from these symptoms. I've been told by many clients that they feel safe and accepted by me and that I work well with clients who "dislike therapy".

You are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You're going through your day with the constant fear of not being a good enough mom, partner, employee. You feel lost and overwhelmed as you fight to present yourself as someone who has it "all together." Your friends and family don't know how alone you feel because you don't want to be a burden to them. The ghosts of your past torment you, reminding you constantly that if you had been good enough to begin with then you wouldn't have been hurt so badly. It's all your fault, your mind is racing, and you don't know how to make it stop.

Hi! I'm so glad you're here. Finding the right therapist is hard. Here's a little info about me to help with your search: I understand and value that every person comes to counseling with their own strengths, needs, and unique perspective; because of this, I utilize a holistic, individualized approach to therapy. Above all else, I believe the first step to real therapeutic change begins with creating an environment where every person that steps into my office can feel safe and comfortable working collaboratively toward their goals.

What are you unclear about in your life, that if you figured it out, would make the biggest difference? There are many stages throughout our lives where we come to a crossroads or decide the path that we are on is not the best path for us. Oftentimes feelings of uncertainty, fear, confusion, insecurity, disillusion, or resentment are holding us back from forging the path we truly desire. Other times, it may be symptoms related to our physical or mental health that are delaying our progress such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, low self-image, or unhealed wounds from past relationships.

Throughout our lives we collect memories and experiences and sometimes we just need space; space to breathe, process, exist - let's see what we can do with the space provided for you. Someone who would come to see me might be experiencing transitional periods, anxiety, relationship conflicts, grief, or trying to reconnect and understand themselves more. For whatever reason you are seeking out therapy, I hope you find a therapist who helps you when you are ready.

My passion as a Sexual Addiction Therapist comes from a life-long struggle with my sexual addiction. From a very young age, I entered a highly sexualized world, including sexual abuse by five different men from age five to fourteen. All of these men played a significant and trusting role in my life. When I was eleven years old, losing my father to emphysema forced me to grow up overnight into an overcompensating perfectionist. Perfect student, perfect son, and later a perfect member of the United States Air Force created an unsustainable persona.

I have several approaches to addressing the needs of individuals, couples, and families. These approaches address a wide range of mental, emotional, and health issues. Common issues include depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship issues. After assessment I suggest which approaches would be most beneficial to long term resolution. Therapy may involve traditional therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Matrix Reimprinting (MR), Ericksonian Hypnotherapy or a combination of all. I always discuss these options with my client so that we both arrive at a plan of treatment that the client is comfortable with. See sandraehennies.com for more information

What type of Columbia 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 Columbia?
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?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
