Have you thought about the impact these words have on others? Sometimes life experiences and people cause us to turn down our volumes.

About Casandra Townsel, LSW

I have always been passionate about helping others. With over twenty-two years in the helping profession, I have had the opportunity to assist many souls experience healthy change.  My goal and purpose in life is to help others navigate through life's challenges with a holistic and organic approach.  I have exemplified this in my practice as a Certified Trauma Professional.  During my time working with those struggling with substance use disorder, I recognized that trauma was at the root of substance use, and traditional talk therapy didn't always work.  Implementing Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) into my learning and practice has had such a positive impact with clients.

I serve as a board member for agencies that work to bring supportive services to those in disenfranchised communities, impacted by homeless and those immersed in human trafficking.  My role as a Certified Trauma Specialist for Sex Trafficking & Sex Industry Exploitation (CTS-S) has advanced me the position to advocate for and educate about the freedom of women and children as well as empower women to raise a collective voice for change.  My passion for the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities is what fuels my diligence and voice for sustainable change.
