My Approach to Helping

Samantha places significant emphasis on a person's relationship within the community, as research has shown that natural support networks and being involved in the greater community are very important to one's sense of self and well-being. Samantha has experience with providing direct and indirect support for clients who struggled with developing linkages to their community, and through those new connections, Samantha experienced firsthand how her clients' relationships in the community opened pathways to success and healing in their lives.

More Info About My Practice

The Portrait Health Way - Our Philosophy
Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to 'play doctor' by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

My Role as a Therapist

Samantha is a licensed professional counselor who is especially skilled at communicating, motivating, and advocating for individuals with emotional and mental health issues. She earned a Master?s degree in Counseling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology.

Samantha believes a strong therapeutic relationship that is grounded in mutual respect and trust is essential for successful treatment. To that end, she offers a secure, comfortable space where individuals in therapy may safely work with her, explore their issues, and find lasting solutions. By working closely with the people in her care she is able to help them maximize their potential, grow, and succeed.

Samantha utilizes a variety of evidence-based approaches during treatment. Her counseling style is judgement-free, empathic, and easy-going.
