I am licensed in Texas with 8 years of professional work experience. I have worked as a high school counselor for the past 9 years. Through my years working as a high school counselor I have worked with not only students, but family members, and staff as well. I have had the ability to help clients in areas such as anxiety, depression, self harm, trauma, eating disorders, self esteem issues, relationship issues, and career choices. Being a school counselor has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of counseling areas, and clients.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential, and interpersonal therapy. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Sandra is very kind and she always replies back whenever I message. She also listens and tries to tell me things in a nice way. She is very soft spoken and encourages me always to do the right thing.

i like working with Sandra. She listens to my concerns and offers good advice. Sometimes, I just need someone to help me to calm down my anxiety and worries. She is good at that. She does not just agree to what she might think that I want to hear, she listens and offers practical advice that I can actually consider as feasible to help with whatever situation.
I am glad that I selected her. I actually chose her because of her ability to work with young people, her understanding, her bilingualism, and cultural background that could help me understand part of what I am going through.
I have even recommended her and BetterHelp to others!
