About Sandra

Sandra Iaderosa, LMSW

Clinical Social Worker

 

I’ve been fortunate throughout my career to have had opportunities to work with a diverse population.

I received my MSW from the University of Michigan School of Social Work with a certificate in Gerontology and worked for many years in both outpatient and inpatient settings at Michigan Medicine with adults. The last 15 years, I’ve been a manager for the social work team at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and have gained expertise in the challenging issues of childhood illness and the disruption this creates in families. I am pleased to have had a wide range of experiences with clients across the life-span.

My experience and interests include coping and growing through chronic or life-limiting illness and the impact these often have on individuals and caregivers alike.  I specialize in grief and loss counseling, depression, anxiety, trauma and other conditions that cause distress and get in the way of living a purposeful and fulfilling life.

I use a strength-based approach to therapy and incorporate elements of CBT and Motivational Interviewing.  I believe that a strong therapeutic and supportive relationship is the foundation for growth.  I take pride in individualizing my approach based on each client’s goals and what they hope to achieve through therapy.

Whether seeking therapy for the first time or a continuation of previous experiences, I strive to create a compassionate and caring space that allows each client to feel safe and supported.
