I provide counseling services for adults and families. Specializing in the spectrum of eating disorders, body image disturbance, anxiety & mood disorders, and relationship issues. Focus on the challenges at Midlife & beyond, Dr. Samuels offers a relational/cultural approach in pursuit of living well and flourishing with the demands of seeking life's balance. Utilizing mindfulness practices, developing adaptive strategies for better outcomes, working collaboratively, these are key to our work together. Dr. Samuels has over 34 years of successful experience helping people make positive, meaningful changes to live more fully.
Practicing in Volusia & Flagler since 1990, I co-founded Nonprofit Organizations to provide outreach in the field of Eating Disorders and Body image. I train Family Medicine physicians to partner in the care of body image and disordered eating considerations across the lifespan. A lifelong yogi, mindfulness practices for coping are incorporated.
