Hello! Hola! My name is Sandra. I am a Native Spanish-Speaking and Bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration – Escuela Bancaria y Comercial, (EBC University) Mexico City. I then went on to receive two Masters Degrees. A Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Argosy University.

My personal life, experiences, and my professional journey have shaped me into a passionate counselor driven by encouraging you to remove the blame, learn to cope with past or present conflicts, and support you in moving forward to see yourself as a lovable and worthy individual.

I will be honored to help you reconnect, educate and support you in taking the steps for a more fulfilling life experience. I genuinely enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. My training and experience include working with adults, adolescents, children, and the whole family.

I have specialized training in Marriage and Family Therapy and have worked with couples on a wide range of concerns, from wanting to improve their relationship, to the complex trauma of healing from affairs. I have also helped couples through changes in family dynamics such as divorce and negotiating new parenting and/or blending new family roles. I am a culturally sensitive therapist in my work with couples, families, and individuals from diverse countries, cultures, and languages.

I have also helped families with strained parent-child relationships, as well as foster care and post-adopt families and complex trauma. I am trained in Trust-Based Relational Interventions (TBRI), Emotion Focused Therapy/Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFT/EFCT), and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). In addition, I have also been trained in complex trauma modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) integrated with Play Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Expressive Arts.
