Sandra is a Registered Psychotherapist and practices in Cobourg under the supervision of a Registered Psychologist or Registered Psychological Associates who are member of the College of psychologists of Ontario.

Whatever treatment you would like to work through with me, whether it is individual, marriage or group, I provide a safe, warm atmosphere with a non-judgmental focus. This allows you to explore your issues, discover what you need, and acquire support to formulate your ideas, tools & get clarity. These tools raise your awareness & assist you to get your present and future goals met. I am a knowledgeable, compassionate and effective practitioner and in partnership with my clients, together, we meet their goals.
My focus is client-centred and eclectic while developing a critical client-therapist trust relationship that determines successful sessions together. I apply various approaches throughout, ie: Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotional Awareness and Release, Addiction related insight, Co-dependency patterns, and shed light on other behaviours that may restrict your goals.
I have facilitated group therapy with men and women both separately and together for over 26 years. My groups are committed, closed groups and run for 6 months at a time. I believe that groups work extremely well. Peer support provides confidence, support, acknowledgement and a sense of community for its members.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist, a Clinical Member of Dalton Associates, a Clinical Member of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists and a Member of The Association of Registered Psychotherapists & Mental Health Professionals.
