Saskia Vanderploeg (license # CTB 2022-0154) is a licensed associate mental health therapist. She's employed by Cerebral and is under the supervision of Nic Sedillo LPCC. Saskia received her masters degree in clinical mental health counseling from Adams State University in Colorado. Her style of counseling draws from the psychodynamic and humanistic theories and she is informed by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for trauma and psychosis as well as mindfulness. According to Saskia: "I believe that in relationship we heal. In our sessions I hope to build a positive therapeutic relationship. Together we will create a safe place where you are supported and challenged, where you can be your authentic self, and where you feel moved to grow. Im interested in experiences of people who are different from me and from the mainstream culture. I look forward to meeting you where you are at."
There is a common experience of being human which transcends differences and that is where we connect, and if we can also be seen and appreciated in those things that make us feel set apart there is a deepening of relating that is healing. -Unknown
