Why the Golden Spiral?
The golden spiral is an inherent pattern, seen throughout the universe; this beautiful geometrical design symbolizes the natural spirit of existence, shared amongst all life and throughout the cosmos.
The golden spiral reminds us that we all share interconnectedness and an universal awareness;
the energy which fosters our existence, our burdens, our discomforts,
also encourages us to thrive, connect and be well.
Although the journey can get stormy at times, we always have this inherent power to shift our sails and take control by moving in a new direction. It is my honor and my pleasure to walk with clients as they venture on the expedition of human life as they know it.
This is your story, write it your way, with your language and your symbolism. You are the author, embrace your ability to create a new reality today; Victor E. Frankl says it best: "Between stimulus & response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom".
Who I am.
My name is Anna Chavez-Sandoval, I am the owner of Golden Spiral Counseling. I am a multicultural licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Colorado. I was born and raised in rural Colorado; I love to hike, read, write and take care of my many plants. Aside from being a therapist, I am a mother, a wife and survivor of my own adverse experiences.
Though I have learned many methods to help others overcome emotional ailments, I also apply these practices to my own life as well. I guess you can say in many ways I am both the teacher, and the student.
I have been working in the counseling profession since 2014. Namely, I worked seven and a half years at a community mental health center and one year at an online K-12 school as their mental health provider. In all these roles, I have been proud to be trauma informed and teach skills that support holistic wellness. This focus continues in my private practice today.
Trauma has a protective way of burying our true self, my mission is to assist in the excavation of who you truly are by teaching you to access the wisdom and intuition within.
I weave together compassion, perspective and coping skills so that clients feel safe, heard and empowered. I do this through a secure online platform as I apply holistic complimentary interventions, accessible from the comfort of your home or anywhere you feel safe!
Using trauma informed practices, I aim to help clients become attuned to their energy in a way that both nurtures and empowers, allowing healing to take place while simultaneously promoting the person to thrive in their life.
My therapeutic process is one that both validates the struggles while harnessing strengths and resilience. By pulling interventions together we co-create a path for change to occur.
I always meet clients where they’re at, without judgement, with compassion and supporting the goal they've generated for themselves.
You are the expert in your life and I am here to help guide your journey as your manifest the most meaningful life possible.
