Samantha is dedicated to enhancing your well-being through improved interpersonal relationships. If you're seeking stronger connections or aiming to cultivate more meaningful bonds, Samantha is here to help. Through collaborative efforts, she guides individuals in developing greater perspective, understanding, and self-awareness, fostering more fulfilling relationships. Passionate about navigating the unique and sometimes tricky experiences that come with being connected to others, Samantha offers support in various areas, including setting boundaries with parents, addressing insecure attachment in romantic relationships, managing friendships, and handling relationship-related challenges in school or the workplace.
Samantha’s calming demeanour will gently encourage you to work through difficult emotions to uncover patterns that may hinder growth by exploring past and present experiences. When working with Samantha, you can expect a non-judgmental, safe space that allows for insightful discussion and self-exploration, with an additional focus on attachment theory, self-compassion, and mindfulness. Through this lens, Samantha will support you in your therapy journey to develop greater insight into how you navigate and experience your environment and emotions so that you feel better equipped to manage current and future challenges.
Outside of work, you can find Samantha reading a good historical fiction book on the couch with a cup of tea, and frequently scouring Indigo’s website for the next interesting read. Samantha also enjoys the therapeutic benefits of listening to music (and having a mini dance party around her house from time to time) to help her unwind after a long day. Additionally, Samantha values spending quality time with family and friends by exploring the city, new restaurants, or having a game night. Finally, Samantha appreciates a good sweet or salty snack, and will often sneak a little treat at the end of the night.
