She works with both teens and adults across the lifespan. Many of her clients are college students, young professionals, young moms, and/or young families looking for additional support.
Cassandra’s therapeutic approach is to blend science with true connection. She takes an integrated approach that blends both behavioral and psychodynamic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

She spends time with her clients looking at the root causes of their symptoms and helping them develop acceptance and self-compassion.
When working with a client with an eating disorder, she takes a team-oriented approach and frequently works with other providers, including dietitians, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, etc. to ensure her client’s needs are being met. She also takes it one step at a time to see if the right level of care is being offered.
