A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You

Hi there! My name is Cari Sans, and I have been working as a Relationship Therapist since the year 2000. With over two decades of experience in this field, I am passionate about helping couples create intentional and fulfilling relationships.

My journey began with seeing couples in therapy, but I also worked with individuals, families, and groups, and facilitated educational workshops. Over time, I noticed that my practice was attracting more and more couples who were struggling with conflict in their relationship. Around 2003, I began to specialize in working with couples in conflict, which ultimately led me to specialize in couples therapy.


Today, I continue to invest in myself with continuing education and personal development to ensure that I am offering the most effective and up-to-date strategies to support my clients.

I have worked with many couples dealing with issues in their relationship and parenting concerns. I then became a parent myself and immersed myself not only in my role as a mom to three young boys but also in how to be an amazing parent. I have loved almost every minute of it, and it has allowed me to grow as a person.
