Sandy Sample, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Bloomington
The world is a challenging place as we learn about - or experience - harmful events. Perhaps you have uncertainties in work, a relationship, or otherwise. I understand that coping with your own personal challenges can be daunting at times. I effectively use feedback, self-evaluating questions, and reflection -- leading to happiness and fulfillment. I also tell my clients that I might have certain insights by looking at patterns, behaviors, and habits they don't realize are present. It's important to me that new beginnings come from within and not from my direct advice or influence.
I enjoy working with clients who are experiencing relationship issues depression, anxiety, and life transitions. I approach healing with cognitive strategies and emotional understanding. I work with many couples in significant distress, and individuals struggling to make positive changes in relationships. I have extensive experience working with the LGBT community.
I see clients during convenient hours: I have daytime and evening hours during the week, and Saturdays 9:00-2:00. Great location in Uptown Minneapolis (near Edina and downtown Minneapolis), and a second site in Bloomington right off of I494 and Penn Avenue.
