Specializing in eating disorders, body image & weight/shape concerns, health and wellness, anxiety & mood disorders, and relationship issues. Dr. Samuels offers a relational/cultural approach in pursuit of living well and flourishing with the demands of the 21st century. Utilizing mindfulness practices, developing adaptive strategies for better health outcomes, working from a collaborative approach, these are key to our work together. I have 34 years of successful experience helping people make positive changes to live full and more satisfying lives.
I've worked locally since 1990; offering counseling services. I co-founded 2 Nonprofit Organizations to provide outreach in the field of Eating Disorders and Body image.
