Sandra Moenssens, LMHC, LMFT


About Me

Since January 2009, she has run her business Counseling for Your Success as owner and head therapist. Sandra’s work has resulted in referrals across generations. Some clients return to her through different developmental phases as their lives evolve. Sandra also enjoys helping people overcome traumatic experiences and bringing them back to their best self. She had to overcome her own trauma in 2011, when her house burned down. When that happened, she felt like she lost herself in the ruins. However, through eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, she healed and rebuilt her life. She found the therapy so impactful and transforming that she felt compelled to educate herself in this treatment to help her own clients heal. She became an EMDR therapist shortly after and achieved certification in in EMDR in 2017. Sandra has become a leader in the field of mental health. She served as president of Central Florida Association For Marriage and Family Therapists (CFAMFT ) in 2013 and 2014. She also had the honor of being a field-trial contributor to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM-5 Revised), which is considered the field’s most authoritative manual of mental disorders. In 2018, Sandra received the Distinguished Service Award from the Central Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy from her peers. She also supervises mental health interns working toward licensure. She takes a sense of pride in watching them grow as they move forward in their journey toward becoming licensed as Mental Health Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists.
