Tiffany Sands, MS, LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology. I have extensive post-graduate training and experience in cognitive therapy, family systems, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
Since beginning my career in counseling in 1997, I have practiced clinically in a children’s psychiatric clinic and administratively in a for-profit community mental health center. I opened my private practice in North Carolina in 2000.
I have had the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, and adults in both clinical and community settings. Through my experience as a counselor, I have confirmed that while specific techniques and interventions are helpful, ultimately a meaningful therapeutic relationship is the crucial factor for lasting benefits.
Thus, I work primarily from an interpersonal and cognitive behavioral perspective and believe that most problems are interpersonal in nature, that early relational experiences are the first and most influential forms of learning, and that the therapeutic relationship is the most important avenue for change.
