Golden Spiral Counseling,PLLC
Quality Teletherapy. Holistic Interventions.
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 experience 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.
Hello! My name is Anna Chavez-Sandoval and I am the owner of Golden Spiral Counseling. I am a multicultural licensed professional counselor (LPC) born and raised in Southern Colorado. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health. With free time I can often be found amongst my family, within nature or engaged in a creative activity. I love to hike, read, write and caretake for my many plants. Aside from being a therapist, I am a mother, a wife and survivor of my own adverse experiences.
I have been working in the counseling world since 2014. Majority of this time was spent as an outpatient clinician at a local community mental health center. In 2021 I left CMH and served as a mental health provider for an online K-12 school. Through all these roles, I have been proud to wear a trauma informed lens and teach skills that support holistic wellness. This focus continues in my private practice today.
Throughout the years, I learned many methods aimed to heal emotional ailments and improve quality of living. I apply these practices to my own life as well as teach them in the therapeutic setting. My passion for knowledge and innately curious nature lends to how I work both as a counselor, and, as person. In many ways I am simultaneously the teacher, and the student.
Trauma has a protective way of burying our true self, my mission is to assist you in the excavation of who you truly are, by teaching you drop into the calm and wise intuitive spaces where we can clearly see ourselves, our goals and the next steps to take.
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 weave together compassion, perspective and coping skills so 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 any safe space.
Using trauma informed practices like mindfulness, meditation, art, breathe work and visualization, 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.
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.
