About Me

Life can be challenging especially for Christians this day and age, as it is riddled with various kinds of pressures, transitions, disruptions and relationships involving activities, people, jobs, pursuits, systems, institutions, ideas, expectations. The nature of these things can color our experience with God and with one another. Whether you are looking for some tools to support short-term coping skills for your situation, or looking to do deeper work of seeing how past experiences can color the present experience , I take a gentle trauma-informed, and authentic style to collaborate with you for your goals. Wherever you are in your faith, I will collaborate with you; my approach is integrative and individualized as no one person is the same. With a relational basis, I draw from IFS (Internal Family Systems), Gestalt, Object Relations, as well as holistic/somatic approaches, including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, EFT, ACT, DBT, CBT . Clients have seen marked improvements in their lives and relationships. I look forward to helping you meet therapeutic goals.
I am available Tuesdays, as well as Monday and Wednesday evenings for live sessions. I believe live sessions will help give a better picture of the nature and history of your therapeutic goals, and thus can support more focused work.

Reviews

Written by S.H. on Oct 10, 2020 after counseling with Samantha for 5 months

I appreciate her style and compassion. She shares appropriately and listens well. I like her ability to work through her various techniques without me felling like she is “working me”
