Professional statement

Cassandra is a Licensed Professional Counselor in both Texas and California. She specializes in trauma and PTSD, the creative/entertainment/freelance community, and neurodivergence. She utilizes an eclectic model, customizing her approach to best help the person she is holding space for at that moment. She utilizes CBT, ACT, Expressive Arts, Mindfulness, and other Somatic related approaches, and is an EMDR certified therapist.

She offers the “Neurodivergent- Magical F***ing Humans Group” twice a year, as well as the “Freestyle Therapy Group” that focuses on specific challenges that entrepreneurs and the creative community face. She focuses not only on the importance of individual therapy, but also creating a safe community around the client. She partners with local yoga and holistic/somatic practitioners for women’s workshops in both states. She has spent a lifetime as a musician and it helps her bring a special understanding of the unique stressors and issues that creatives, entrepreneurs, and freelancers face on a daily basis. She sees clients in person on Tuesdays and remotely the rest of the week. She offers EMDR intensives by request, both in person and online (full day or week long).


Message to clients

Everyone deserves to feel balanced and deserves to have a safe space to let go and share. Nobody should ever feel alone or always have to be “the strong one”. I am a human first, just like you. I will never promise that I have all the answers, but I will promise to walk with you through anything you need help walking through. I am blunt and sarcastic but highly empathetic and patient. I am ready to listen and help you navigate your journey to the other side of your trauma. Let’s get you some relief.
