Romantic relationships can be very rewarding and even healthy relationships are hard sometimes . Every relationship faces challenges now and then and talking with someone who listens without judgement, understands your concerns and helps you clarify issues can be invaluable. I am a culturally competent therapist working with various population having experience with serving the LGBTQ community, adolescents (13-18 yrs old), adults, couples, veterans, and those suffering from chronic illness.
My therapeutic approach is solution focused and I utilize multiple modalities to best fit individual needs. I implement evidence based therapy techniques such as; mindfulness based interventions, IBCT, CBT, ACT and DBT to aid in behavior modification. I employ a variety of widely researched and effective therapeutic approaches to address symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relational problems and/or other life stressors or concerns.
My personal and professional life has been dedicated to helping others and I am truly passionate about my work.

Through a collaborative process, we can explore and address the underlying causes of problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings and relationship issues.

Samantha has been extremely helpful to my husband Kyle and I. She has always remained diplomatic and took the time to see both of our points of view and gave great feedback and insight. Thank you Samantha for everything, it's been quite the messy up and down ride with us...we appreciate all you've done to try and help us. Sincere thanks.
