About Sandy Jardine

Welcome! My clients tell me I am warm, supportive and VERY PRACTICAL. My commitment to you is to listen deeply with respect and understanding, and to help empower you to live a life of meaning, happiness and satisfaction.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor (approved by ICEEFT), and workshop leader, with 30 years’ experience working with individuals, couples, and groups.

I received my Masters in Counseling from the University of Arizona, graduating with honors. Since then, I have trained extensively with the leading couples counseling experts in the United States and Canada. These include Drs. John and Julie Gottman, creators of Scientifically Based Marital Therapy and Drs. Ellyn Bader and Pete Pearson  to learn their Developmental Couples Therapy.

With this training as a foundation, I now study with Dr. Sue Johnson and her associates. Dr. Johnson is the creator and leading practitioner of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I am designated as a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (www.ICEEFT.com). I am one of a handful of therapists in Arizona to receive these designations. To learn more about Emotionally Focused Therapy, see What is EFT.

I am committed to working with couples at all stages of relationship—including dating, premarital, marital, divorce and post divorce. I also help individuals transform self defeating behaviors, reduce stress, learn to select an appropriate partner, resolve dating challenges, and cope with life transitions.

Along with my husband, Douglas a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), and Licensed Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC).  We have developed special skills helping individuals and couples deal with issues related to living with prostate cancer. Through our shared experience, I have learned a lot about the woman’s side of prostate cancer. It affects us differently but no less profoundly than men. I can help guide you through this challenging process, help you cope with the fear, and support you through the hurdles that arise.

Douglas and I can work with you individually or as a co-therapy team, to help you create and maintain a safe, secure, connected relationship with yourself and those you love.
