13 years of experience

Hello my name is Sandra Nunez, and I provide intuitive psychotherapy services to individual, children, couples, and families in need of counseling. People search for therapy for various reasons. Most often these reasons include feelings of sadness, experiencing difficulties adjusting to life changes, difficulties dealing with chronic physical pain, emotional pain, trauma, depression, anger, and anxieties. Perhaps you are trying to heal from a difficult relationship breakup, leaving you feeling sad and defeated. It could be that you are a part of a newly formed blended family, living together for the first time, and instead of joy you are experiencing chaos. You may be seeking help, because your spouse has received orders for yet another deployment with the military. Having to say goodbye once again, leaves you feeling frustrated, anxious and sad. Often people come to therapy due to grief and loss. People dealing with difficult life changes, may experience a range of negative emotions, from sadness, anxiety to anger. These feelings often manifest as stress, which may cause further strain in personal relationships or affect one’s quality of life. Guiding Hope Individual and Family Therapy in San Diego, California is a private online practice owned by a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a Doctorate in Behavioral Health, serving clients in the State of California and Colorado.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our sessions I will provide you with the tools you need to build a solid foundation that will help you improve your overall well-being. I will also support you on your journey of self-discovery by helping you find a deeper meaning in your life and relationships. Through my services, I aim to help you gain insight and self-awareness so that you can progress toward positive change. We will work together to achieve a deeper understanding of your underlying behavior patterns that may be keeping you from reaching satisfaction in life. Based on these patterns, I will help you create attainable goals while making sure that you feel supported and validated throughout your healing journey.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

When individuals are suddenly experiencing trauma, depression, anxiety, infidelity, codependency, domestic violence, acculturation, emotional overeating, racial identification, family conflict, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, emotions associated with such, can feel extremely overwhelming. Seeking help during these hard times is a sign of your strength. I will work with you to map out your journey of healing, using various psychotherapy modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused, client centered, trauma-focused CBT and others. I am not able at the moment to treat borderline personality disorder and clients with active suicidal ideation, due to being online only therapist.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I utilize a holistic approach to providing therapy to my clients. I consider each person’s mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional health to facilitate optimal functioning within the individual and family unit. During our sessions, I will focus on learning about your unique upbringing to understand how it shaped you into the person you are today. We might start our session by creating a genogram to process your intergenerational trauma and determine a solution to heal from it. In my practice I specialize in working with children and adults who experience various types of trauma, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, domestic violence dynamics, victims of sexual abuse, codependency issues, emotional overeating, parenting, health, divorce, military issues.
