Sandra McNeil (she/her)  PhD, MSW, RSW

I welcome people who experience a wide range of mental health and substance use issues. Grounded in a client-centered, recovery-oriented, and trauma informed approach, I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to enhance self-awareness and reflective action. My intention is to provide a gentle, respectful, and compassionate presence in which healing and recovery may unfold. I offer in-person and virtual sessions with evening options.
