Hello and welcome to BetterHelp! I am a Licensed Master's Level graduate of Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM). I have worked with individuals (adolescents and adults), couples, and families in several different non-clinical and clinical settings including residential and intensive outpatient in both non-profit and private facilities.
My specialties include treating individuals with communication issues, intimacy-related issues, depression, stress and anxiety, low self-esteem, ADD/ADHD, family conflict, relationship issues, death of a loved one, substance use/abuse. As your therapist, we go through your journey together to decrease and/or eliminate distress of your mind and within your relationships through "talk therapy". My approach to your treatment depends on your goals for therapy and the issue(s) that you present. At times, we delve in your family background and how you were raised as a child and into your past relationships as I have found that what's going on presently is a direct result of unresolved issues from the past. At other times, there is just a need to find a solution and/or come to a resolution of an issue.
I utilize a few treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT).
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!

Cassandra is very down to earth and speaks with kindness. She makes sure to take note of issues I bring up so that she can follow up with me. She listens to me and shared some of her own relatable stories and that makes me feel closer with her.
