And, she strives to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where the needs and challenges of her clients can be addressed and understood.

Trauma & Relationships
Sandra specializes in developmental childhood trauma and understands first-hand how childhood trauma can affect relationships and everyday life, even as an adult. She brings not only specialized training, but the invaluable experience of her own recovery process with her own therapist. Sandra has walked the path from the pain and relationship challenges child-hood trauma can bring, to a powerfully healing experience of new awareness and insight, healthy relationships, and a new appreciation for life.
With a focus on the complex and crucial connections between mind & body, she will help you process and recover from trauma and emotional distress. She offers an empathetic and empowering attitude toward her clients’ emotional struggles, aspirations and personal growth. She encourages her clients to talk about their experiences, not only in order to gain insights into patterns of negative thinking, but additionally to identify harmful behavior patterns and learn new ways to cope with triggers. To work with a therapist who has specialized training and personal experience with child-hood trauma provides a rich and healing experience for clients with this history.
Parenting & Coparenting Coaching
As a coparenting coach, Sandra offers a personalized plan with clear goals to help her clients better navigate the intricacies of their family’s unique situation. In her work, she approaches coparenting from the perspective of a child’s advocate so that the child(ren) will be the priority and focus of coparenting. Whether the parents are in relationship or separated/divorced, she is masterful at helping clients navigate their way to a more positive and functional relationship so that their children can thrive and feel supported by both parents.
Not only does Sandra bring coparenting coaching expertise, but she brings her own experience of working toward a healthier coparienting relationship with her ex-husband. She was married for 20 years and struggled in a marriage where trauma and addiction was often at the forefront. Sandra eventually found herself making the hard decision to get a divorce and start her life over. Working alongside her therapist and with her own training as a parenting and coparenting coach, she went through a transformative journey which enabled her to develop a more cohesive and collaborative coparenting relationship with her ex-husband.
