Marriage & Family Therapist
Samantha understands that there is no simple, textbook definition for “family”.
She believes that personal beliefs and experiences uniquely shape each person’s reality of what family is and champions a healthy family, no matter what form or definition it may have.
Samantha believes that almost every family issue can be traced back to misunderstanding or miscommunication – which leaves family members feeling lonely and unheard.
She maintains that miscommunication and isolation are avoidable culprits of many issues within families, especially with children and aims to help parents, children, and families in navigating this.
“I believe that one of the most important reinforcements for an individual is to feel supported by your family. As a child, the way you fit into your family lays the foundation for your self-esteem for the rest of your life, as a teenager or young adult, a perception of support and safety can catapult an individual to attaining their most difficult goals, and in later life, your family belonging is what keeps you grounded.”
“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” — Jane Howard
Whether “family” means a traditional family unit, a nontraditional, single-parent, same-sex parent or co-parent family, an adoptive or foster family, a multigenerational family, or even a group of roommates who consider themselves family, Samantha knows the importance of these relationships and the effect they have on people’s lives.
She helps clients work through parenting struggles related to behavioral issues, deciding if divorce is the right option for a marriage, communicating more effectively, and many other family-based therapeutic focuses.
Samantha believes that “anyone is capable of anything if they have the right support system”.
Sometimes life knocks the breath out of you and you’re not sure how to get back up. Samantha is here to help you find your own strength and rise back to your feet.
“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing.”
– C. JoyBell
In each therapeutic method and intervention she uses, Samantha searches for experience. She believes change occurs when experience is involved.
“The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.”
– Thomas Paine
Samantha feels that if clients can have meaningful experiences in a therapy session, the concepts and processes of that experience will continue to be valuable outside of session.
She focuses on the client experiencing what is important to them and rebuilding their own perspective.
Samantha recognizes that everyone’s reality is individualized and sees YOU as the expert on your life.
