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.

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.
