Samantha enjoys working with children, adolescents, young adults, individuals, couples as well as families. Samantha uses a strength-based approach in treatment and looks at the counseling process as a partnership and an opportunity for clients to actively learn about themselves and set attainable goals for the future. Samantha also looks at adversity as an opportunity for growth rather than a setback. Samantha believes the counseling space is a safe place for people to be able to open up and talk about things that they may otherwise never have the opportunity or courage to share with another person.
