Treatment Approach

"There are five freedoms:
The freedom to see and hear what is;
The freedom to say what you feel and think;
The freedom to feel what you actually feel;
The freedom to ask for what you want;
The freedom to take risks on your own behalf."

-V. Satir

Client Focus

Family systems therapy, a form of counseling which specializes in treating family relationships to assist a family function in more comfortable and useful ways.

Sandra Elder, MS NCC LPC

I believe in providing a safe environment where clients can explore their feelings, fears, and concerns. In attaining a strong and genuine therapeutic relationship, therapy can be a life-changing experience. As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a concentration in family systems, I have extensive training in high conflict families, as well as with children and teenagers with behavioral issues. I enjoy working with couples to resolve negative interaction patterns and intimacy issues. I am available for individual, family, and/or couples therapy sessions.

I have worked in community mental health for more than fifteen years, and have a strong knowledge base of this system. I enjoy working in tandem with other professionals if needed.

I also enjoy working with individual adults to address depression, anxiety, grief/loss, relationship issues, and overall life stressors.

In addition to clinical treatment, I also provide supervision for candidates seeking to accrue hours towards licensure.
