Kassandra French, LMFT is a licensed therapist who specializes in the treatment of anxiety, depression, couples/family therapy and sports psychology. She is particularly interested in working with individuals facing emotional distress from life transitions (i.e. grief after loss of loved one, divorce, miscarriage, aging and/or job change). She works to help individuals grieve the loss of the life they originally envisioned and gently take steps toward developing a new, empowered identity. Kassandra incorporates a number of therapeutic techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy and mindfulness-based approaches to improving mental health.
Kassandra believes that through the understanding and awareness developed in counseling, clients can better understand their own needs and more effectively communicate those needs to others. Clients describe Kassandra as a compassionate and non-judgmental therapist who moves swiftly between light, humorous conversations and more pointed, challenging moments to help people achieve their therapeutic goals.
Kassandra earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Bucknell University, studying Psychology and Education and earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. Most recently she received her post-graduate certificate in Sports Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. She has experience working with individuals in emerging adulthood/adulthood, couples and families in distress and athletes.
