Samantha works with post-secondary students and young professionals to manage stress and anxiety in their work, school, and interpersonal relationships. Through exploring past and present experiences, Samantha can support you in developing a greater understanding and perspective on your current challenges, which Samantha believes are important pillars for healing and positive change. In her practice, Samantha also emphasizes self-care as integral in setting personal boundaries, preventing burnout, and leading a fulfilling life.
Samantha is a warm and sincere person who will gently encourage you to work through difficult emotions and experiences to uncover patterns that may hinder growth. What you can expect when working with Samantha is a safe and collaborative space that allows for insightful discussion, self-exploration, and a strong therapeutic relationship to flourish.
Samantha works primarily from psychodynamic and emotion-focused frameworks, but with an additional focus on attachment and self-compassion. Through this lens, Samantha will support you along your therapy journey to develop greater insight into how you navigate and experience your environment and inner world, so that you may feel better equipped to manage current and future challenges.
She believes that great healing and growth can be achieved through therapy when we are committed to the process of self-discovery.
