I believe in the transformative power of therapy to create positive change and restore hope. My goal is to provide a safe and nurturing space where individuals feel seen, heard, and supported on their path toward healing and self-discovery.

With a Master’s degree in Social Work and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Samantha brings over 7 years of dedicated experience in the field of social services. Samantha has had the privilege of working in a variety of settings, including community mental health agencies and private practice. These diverse professional experiences have allowed her the opportunity to support individuals facing a wide range of challenges.

Samantha’s journey into psychotherapy began with a deep passion for understanding the human mind and behaviour. Witnessing the profound impact of trauma on individuals’ lives, Samantha dedicated herself to providing compassionate and evidence-based trauma therapies such as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), supporting individuals on their journey towards healing.

Through a collaborative and strengths-based framework, Samantha works with individuals to uncover their inner resources and cultivate resilience. Utilizing a range of evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Samantha tailors every session to meet the unique needs and goals of everyone she works with.

Continuing education and professional growth are important to Samantha’s practice. She regularly pursues additional training in evidence-based modalities to ensure that she is offering the most effective and up-to-date therapeutic approaches.
Beyond her professional pursuits, Samantha treasures her role as a mother. She deeply values the time spent with her family and prioritizes maintaining balance through her own self-care routines.

Regardless of whether you’re navigating trauma recovery, managing mental health challenges, tackling life transitions, or pursuing personal growth, Samantha is committed to walking alongside you on your journey towards healing, growth, and empowerment.
