Cassandra Goar MA, LPC, NCC

I help clients get to the root of what's causing their struggles.

Therapy is a process of helping you heal from the inside out.

I'm here to help your best Self

Have you tried to get help for your anxiety, depression, or relationship concerns but find yourself still struggling?


For many people, getting to the root of these issues lies deeper in what I refer to as emotional wounding. Emotional wounds can stem from things that most people consider traumatic (think big traumatic experiences – if you’ve experienced them, you probably know). They can also come from negative life experiences that impact our sense of identity by changing our internalized beliefs about ourselves and the way we interact with the world (think growing up with dysfunctional family members, being bullied or teased by peers, negative messaging we receive from media, health problems, and the list goes on.) These are commonly referred to as “small t” traumas and can create complex trauma. I refer to them as emotional wounds because our emotions and nervous system are intricately connected. And our nervous system continues to impact how we think, feel, and behave. 


In our work together, we will work on getting to the root of the symptoms whether it be negative body image, anxiety, depression, patterns of negative relationships (intimate, friendships, and family).


As a trauma-informed, body-positive therapist, I have seen numerous clients come in after receiving little to no relief from medications or other counseling. And the reason these symptoms persist is because we have to get to the root of it to truly heal it. Through deep self-exploration and healing emotional wounds, we can help your nervous system learn a new way of being and therefore a new way of interacting with life.  


I work from a compassionate, client-centered approach to individualize your therapy to best meet your unique needs. It is not one size fits all when it comes to therapy and I firmly believe it takes client and therapist collaboration to make sure you are getting the benefits you are looking for.


Change is possible!
