I am a lover of the creative arts, particularly music, and feel most alive when riding my bike, dancing, traveling, and immersing myself in nature. I believe life is most fully experienced when we feel safe enough to hold space for all our emotions and experiences.
Sometimes that means beginning again, getting curious about the places in ourselves that may have been hurt, and allowing those experiences to be, with awareness, acceptance, compassion, and laughter.
My experiences as an educator to at-risk youth have led me towards an emotion focussed, trauma informed and attachment based approach to therapy. My background education and interest in Eastern Religion has also drawn me to somatics and mindfulness, which I weave into my therapeutic approach and personal practise.
Ideally, clients commit to 10 sessions on a consistent basis to help develop therapeutic relationships and for the intern to develop their skills. Upon completion, clients may terminate or continue working with the counsellor at their own pace. Samantha is also open to collaborating on a schedule that works best for the client if the above option isn't possible.
If you'd prefer to have a complementary "meet and greet" to ensure Samantha is a good fit for you, please email her through this link to set-up this appointment.
