Marriage and Family Therapist
Cassandra is a therapist at the Center for Developing Minds providing counseling for children and adolescents between the
ages of 9 and 22 and their families. She uses a cognitive behavioral approach to working with youth struggling with anxiety,
depression, behavioral and social problems. Cassandra also moderates several classes and groups at the CDM, including the popular "Let's Get Organized" and "Meltdowns to Shutdowns," which are offered periodically throughout the year.
Cassandra previously worked as a therapist for Eastfield Ming Quong (EMQ) Addiction Prevention Services, conducting
high school therapy groups that handle issues related to self esteem, stress management, anger management, drug use and abuse. She was also a clinician for the EMQ Child and Adolescent Crisis Program where she provided safety assessments for youth at-risk for
harming themselves or others, consulted with families to create a safety plan and orchestrated appropriate psychiatric placements.
Prior to joining the CDM, Cassandra trained for several years at one of Seneca Center’s adolescent psychiatric residential programs and
then she managed the at-risk adolescent unit and supervised and trained residential staff at the Santa Clara County Children’s Shelter.
She also worked at Las Plumas Mental Health, where she provided a variety of school districts with at-risk assessments for students to
ensure that their educational needs were met.
Cassandra is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She earned a M.A in Counseling and a B.A. in Psychology, both from St. Mary’s
College of California. She is an active member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.
