Sandra Hough, Ph.D.

sandra-houghLife continually challenges the methods we have developed to cope with recent situational and developmental stresses as well as long-standing struggles.  I believe therapy offers a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment to learn healthier and more effective ways of meeting these challenges.

Together in therapy we will identify patterns of thinking and behavior that may affect your current struggles.  We will focus not merely on your difficulties, but also on your unique strengths and resources in order to assist you in developing more effective skills.

I have 25+ years of experience as a therapist working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.  My background in nursing and family systems, as well as psychology, has resulted in an individualized approach to therapy that includes cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, interpersonal, systems, trauma-focused and insight-oriented therapies. I consider it a privilege to collaborate with clients to design a process to meet your specific needs and situations.
