Therapy with Samantha

My Therapy Approach:

I believe in the importance of making therapy a collaborative process. Collaboration will help you feel empowered to make and embrace the best choices for your life.

My goal is to create a therapeutic environment that feels safe, open, and nonjudgmental so that we can explore your needs and hopes for the future. Together we can facilitate a therapeutic environment that will promote the interpersonal and intrapersonal changes that you are searching for in your life!

I am passionate about working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, eating disorders/disordered eating, and those who are seeking healing from trauma.


Personal Statement:

Empowerment is crucial in the healing process. As your therapist, I want to empower you to become the person you want to be, to recover and move forward from the injuries you still carry.
