Knute Sands

Supervised Psychotherapist


Knute Sands

Choosing to seek psychotherapy is a brave act of self-love and self-compassion. But it isn’t always easy to take that first step. Knute (he/him) empowers clients to build upon their innate wisdom and strengths in order to find resiliency and healing. He strongly believes people do not “have disorders”, but rather that their mental health symptoms often arise in response to a disordered society or situation. Knute works with clients from a mind-body-spirit perspective, helping to ground their treatment in nervous system regulation skills, attachment-based patterns and knowledge, family systems awareness, humor, and greater existential purpose. Knute works from a position of deep acceptance and views the therapeutic process as collaborative and client-driven.

Knute is passionate about helping teens, adults, and couples navigate anxiety, depression, relational challenges, and issues of sexuality, gender, and identity. He works from a relational, trauma-informed, and systemic perspective to support clients on their journey of healing and self-discovery.
