Brice Sanner, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Brice is excited to be in business with his best friend and wife, Lindsay. While Brice enjoys working with many different populations, he is guided by compassion and science to gain a deeper understanding of emotions and the human brain. He comes from the thought that YOU are the expert on YOUR life. Your thoughts, feelings, sensations, experiences-they are all unique to you. So if you are looking for a sense of direction, relief, and overall happiness, it is important to explore all aspects of yourself to gain a better understanding.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with Brice, please contact Bernadette. Brice accepts most major insurance, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Please reach out to Bernadette for information regarding discounted Self-Pay rates.
Brice has a unique story that has shaped his journey to becoming a therapist. Brice was in the banking industry for nearly a decade when he felt a desire to give back to his community. His background demonstrates his passion for helping people: Before entering the MFT program, he spent a summer in Jacksonville, Florida doing beach evangelism; he assisted at an inner city Church with upwards of 150 youth and only 20 adults in attendance; he has also coached and mentored an inner city youth softball league. Brice is excited to continue to support the community of Andover. Brice is an alumnus of Leadership Butler.
While Brice isn’t spending time around Andover Family Counseling, you can find him at his son’s baseball or soccer games in Andover, attending Andover Chamber of Commerce events, taking his daughter to story time at the Andover Public Library, or dreaming of catching trout in Colorado. Please feel free to reach out to Brice if you have any questions.
Contact Brice to schedule an appointment.
