Sandy Healey, LISW, IAADC
Sr. Behavioral Clinical Specialist

Portrait of Sandy Healey

"I believe that one primary role for a counselor is to hold on to hope when you believe there is no hope and to help people find strength and courage in times of vulnerability. When people consider seeking out a therapist to talk about what is bothering them or with what may be going on in their lives, often it is because they have begun to feel lost, or alone, or confused. And also when facing hard things like divorce, death of a loved one, addiction, trouble at work, difficulty sleeping and constant worry. Life is and can be quite hard. You don’t have to walk through it alone.

In my career I have worked with people struggling with addiction, grief, divorce, anxiety, depression, trauma, legal problems and criminal histories, behavioral concerns, family and relationship issues, and low self-esteem. My therapy includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Seeking Safety (trauma & addiction), Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness and meditation. If you are experiencing any of the above concerns my hope is that we can sit together in a safe place and we can work to find a solution together."
