What Samantha would like you to know about her:
I love working with clients of all ages. I believe in the importance of research-based treatment. I have the view that it is my job to make treatment relevant to my client and I’m willing to use my entire breadth of experience to help my client’s meet their goals while meeting them where they are. Therapy happens more outside of session so when supporting a client, I utilize their full care system; this can include everyone from parents to pets! I am open to in-person and online treatment. My many interests include rowing, traveling and of course getting to know my clients!
