Meet the Therapists

Sandra Fischer, PsyD
Licensed Psychologist

Angela Cantrell Fielding
LISW RPT

I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in working with children and adolescents. I have been providing therapy in Cedar Rapids for the past eight years and have previously worked at Horizons and Tanager Place. I have extensive training and experience in providing treatment for children and adolescents who have experienced trauma, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment approach shown to help children, adolescents, and their caregivers overcome emotional and behavioral difficulties related to a traumatic event. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), another evidence based treatment for childhood trauma. In addition to trauma, other areas of treatment interest include anxiety, childhood sexual behavior problems, and adjustment issues, such as grief and divorce.

In 2012, I was chosen to be the recipient of St. Luke’s Child Protection Center’s Kathleen Opdebeeck Award for Professional Excellence. This award is given to professionals who have demonstrated exemplary service in providing specialized assistance to Iowa’s children. Clearly this award was a great honor, but having the opportunity to help children feel better about themselves and overcome adversity is rewarding in itself.

I am a licensed independent social worker and have provided therapeutic services to children and families with over twelve years experience. I have provided therapy services in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids while working at Tanager Place Clinic. I am a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and have specialized training in evidenced based treatment of Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). My office provides a PCIT suite to offer PCIT services effectively.

I am also trained in trauma informed Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). My career focus is dedicated to working with children and families dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, foster care/adoption, disruptive behaviors and parenting challenges. I believe a parent is the most important person in a child’s life and will incorporate parents into sessions to build positive understanding, relationships and decreasing behaviors.

I also provide clinical supervision to Licensed Masters of Social Workers (LMSW’s).
