At some point in all of our lives, we might struggle with a mental wellness issue in some capacity. This is just part of being human and living life. I believe that being vulnerable, asking for help, and self-exploration are some of the hardest and most important things that we will ever do. I also believe that you do not need to walk this path on your own. Hi, my name is Samantha, and it is nice to “meet” you! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and am a certified educator. I am currently working on receiving my Masters of Social Work degree with a focus in clinical mental health and am on track towards licensure. I have been practicing in the field providing individualized clinical social work services, mental health counseling, and pre-assessment clinical consults for 4 years. My therapeutic approach draws from psychosocial and multidimensional frameworks. I use a holistic approach paired with things like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, Gestalt therapy, psychoeducation, and motivational interviewing to help you find answers to questions that you might have about yourself and your journey. I am also deeply committed to an evidence-based, trauma-informed, empowerment, strength-based, and mindful practice. This means that I always strive to be open, nonjudgmental, empathetic, and simply “human” to provide the therapeutic support that you need. I specialize in areas that relate to things like eating disorders, identity, self-esteem, trauma, adoption, lifespan development, codependency, and complicated family of origin for adults (18+). Outside of work, I spend most of my time raising my two sons paired with a lot of self-care. Some of my favorite pastime activities are things like watching cartoons, reading, cooking or baking, and napping! I look forward to getting to know you.
