a specialist for Anxiety & OCD.
Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor #MH8283
Welcome! I’m Sandra,
I am here to guide and encourage you, to move in the direction of the meaningful life you deserve.
Treatment for anxiety consists of evidenced based therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I hope to provide you with the steps you need to move past the fear in your life, so that you can grow beyond it.
I will hold space for you and support you in your journey until you are ready to do it on your own. My approach is educational, supportive and empowering. I believe you have strength to do what you may have been afraid to try in the past.
If you are not quite ready to do ERP we can start with assessment of your symptoms, education and work to reduce rumination and other compulsions. We will also identify your core fear.
Treating OCD and anxiety is a process that unfolds session by session. For those who want to increase outcomes in treatment, sessions can be increased to two or three times per week. There is no perfect way to do treatment, and each person is unique.
