Sandy Jardine, MS, LPC, psychotherapist, counselor
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 love, meaning, connection and happiness.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Certified EFT Supervisor (approved by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy).  I am also a workshop leader with 30 years’ experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I am experienced working with individuals and couples at all stages of life, including those who have different sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs.

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 ( I am one of a handful of therapists in Arizona who has earned these designations. Additionally, I am one of TRI EFTthe Founders of the Arizona Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy ( and an affiliate of the Training & Research Institute for Emotionally Focused Therapy at Alliant International University ( (See What is EFT.)

I am committed to working with couples and individuals 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, I 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 live the life you desire.
