Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Zandra and I am so happy that you have taken the first step towards seeking counseling. I know it’s not an easy decision to come to. We tend to want to keep stuff to ourselves; especially our “problems”. But, I want you to know that it’s okay to ask for help. If anything, I think it takes a lot of courage to do so and I’m here to help you with whatever your issues are.
As a Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addiction Counselor, I specialize in working with individuals who have been dually diagnosed (mental health and addictions). I enjoy helping individuals learn how to manage depression and/or anxiety and refrain from that knee jerk reaction to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. I understand all too well how easy it is to just want to escape into that bottle of alcohol or use a substance, to satisfy that need for instant gratification. But, I want you to know that it’s never too late to get yourself back on track. I would love the opportunity to work with you; provide you with the support and guidance needed to work towards your goal of living a happier, more fulfilled life.
In case you were wondering, I completed my Graduate Degree in Social Work at New York University in 2010. I’m a native New Yorker that now calls Atlanta home. I’ve worked primarily with the adult population in various levels of treatment; both outpatient and inpatient, taking the message of recovery from the correctional facilities all the way to the person bedded down homeless under a bridge. I offer trauma-informed care, to either the court mandated or voluntary client. I’m a very down to earth individual; who doesn’t have a problem calling you out on your stuff. And I truly believe in meeting the client exactly where they are at.
If you’re ready to take that leap and make a change, give me a call or shoot me an email. I would love to hear from you!!
