About Me

My name is Cassandra Chaney and I want to be there for you when you feel like no one else can.

"I am a therapist born and raised in an urban, low-income community. Places often referred to as “traps” because of how challenging escaping them can be, in addition to having personal experiences just as traumatic and misunderstood as the average person. Through my journey and interactions with many people, I learned that each person has their own unique set of experiences and environments in which they were raised.  Thus I came to the conclusion that the best way that I can help in the healing process is to first use what I went through to be able to empathize with them and second to learn as many methods, practices and techniques to create a customized plan that would work for each individual person."
