Sandra Selvon-Semin MA, LPCC

Hello, I’m Sandra

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate

My job is not to judge but to build a level of trust, provide support, encourage the client to feel safe in expressing thoughts, feelings, and symptoms while working alongside them to find solutions and tools to manage their life situations.

I am originally from Mauritius, a very small tropical island paradise located in the Indian Ocean. I have lived in the US for the last 27 years and still get to visit family back home and in Europe fairly frequently. French is my first language but unfortunately I do not get to practice it as much as I would like to. With a military background, I was fortunate to move around the country spending much time on the west coast, the Midwest, and Florida. I moved back to Colorado a year ago with all three of my children, and I’m happy to be here on a more permanent basis. This is where we feel most at home. I enjoy hiking, camping, paddle boarding, running, volunteering, hot yoga, soaking up the sun on my deck in the early morning, and last minute road trips.

Hello, I’m Sandra

My job is not to judge but to build a level of trust, provide support, encourage the client to feel safe in expressing thoughts, feelings, and symptoms while working alongside them to find solutions and tools to manage their life situations.

I am originally from Mauritius, a very small tropical island paradise located in the Indian Ocean. I have lived in the US for the last 27 years and still get to visit family back home and in Europe fairly frequently. French is my first language but unfortunately I do not get to practice it as much as I would like to. With a military background, I was fortunate to move around the country spending much time on the west coast, the Midwest, and Florida. I moved back to Colorado a year ago with all three of my children and happy to be here on a more permanent basis. This is where we feel most at home. I enjoy hiking, camping, paddle boarding, running, volunteering, hot yoga, soaking up the sun on my deck in the early morning, and last minute road trips.

I am an empathic therapist with a background working with individuals that have co-occurRing diagnoses, college students, military families, couples, and children dealing with such issues as substance abuse, relationship challenges, parenting struggles, anxiety, depression, and life transition complications. I also enjoy counseling with individuals and families from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I believe that each person is unique doing the best they can considering the context they live in, their past experiences, and the relationships that exist in their lives. However, it is also my belief that people all have the ability to heal and to make the changes they so desire in order to improve their quality of life. I consider it a gift and I feel honored that I can be part of one’s journey of self improvement and self discovery.

I have A BackGround working with people who have been victims of trauma and addiction, as well as with veterans, couples, Families, LGbtq+, and teens. I help people who struggle to manage what comes up in life. we work together to find a new “normal” that works better for them.

I was a business owner and graphic designer after finishing my undergrad studies in Applied Computing. After several years I realized that there was still a void in my professional life and as a military wife back then, I was struck by the mental health crisis that still existS to this day in that culture. I made the bold decision to go back to school for mental health counseling and feel that it was the best career decision because it is a passion and not just a job. Since becoming a therapist, have worked with veterans and their families and I have spent a year working in rehab followed by community mental health in a very rural area in Florida where have also taught parenting and addiction classes to teens and adults.  Most recently, I have worked with end of life clients. I find that I work best with families, couples, parents, children, and individuals who have a history of trauma and it’s symptoms such as depression, anxiety, self harm, grief, and addiction.

Adults often overlook their own needs until they are in crisis. I hope to have clients that know they can come to me for non-judgmental support and maybe even a laugh or two. Working through previous trauma or dealing with something that is currently going on can be empowering. Helping someone that hasn’t felt that support in the past can provide such a positive impact on the person’s life.
