Sandy Valenzuela, LCSW

I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been a psychotherapist in general practice for 26 years and in private practice for the past 16 years. I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, backgrounds, and in a variety of circumstances.

I have a great respect and regard for the uniqueness of each of my clients and their individual life experience. I approach each session with a heart to serve, support, and assist my clients in their journey to restoration and wholeness.

I specialize in biblical counseling, sexual abuse treatment, trauma, parenting, and behavioral issues. I have 26 years of experience in treating sexual abuse issues in children and adults. I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Treatment (DBT) in order to effectively treat issues related to trauma. I have been doing biblical counseling for the past 16 years
