Professional statement

Sandra Henderson is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor located in Plainfield, IL. Sandra works with young adults and adults who often become overwhelmed by intense feelings like worry, stress, fear, or sadness. They turn to therapy as a way to get professional help in managing these emotions, as their other methods of self-regulation are no longer working for them. They might face conflicts in their romantic or familial relationships, depression, anxiety, grief, or the feelings that occur after trauma. Sandra helps those whose guilt and shame negatively impacts their lives on a daily basis.

Sandra’s approach to therapy is holistic, client-centered, and strength-based. Sandra encourages clients to lead the conversation towards the areas of their lives they would like to unpack. Clients learn coping strategies that soothe both the mind and the body, focusing on the connection between the two and understanding how their emotions might show up as physical symptoms like headaches or clenched jaws. Her therapy modalities include the Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM), sandtray therapy, ego-states therapy, and somatic experiencing. Sessions with Sandra are centered in support, compassion, acceptance, and empathy.

Sandra earned a Master’s degree from Olivet Nazarene University. She has nearly 10 years of experience. During that time, she’s helped countless individuals with their emotional, attachment, and relational experiences as well as helped others overcome deep trauma.
