One of the core reasons people come to counseling is that they feel a lack of connection. Sometimes that connection is to others in their life; loved ones, partners, friends, or co-workers. Just as often that lack of connection is to themselves; fear, trauma, sexuality or shame. Fostering those connections with transparency, brevity and compassion is something I love to do. Helping people find understanding and to build coping skills that aren’t just instant gratification which drown out the real issues we’ve got (can feel good though). Skills and insight that’s more meaningful and effective than avoidance, or memes on Instagram.

My name is Sam & I’m excited you’re here! I deeply admire what it takes to make the first step in coming to therapy & the vulnerability in truly coming as you are. What's more is my belief in the importance of cultivating a strong, secure counseling partnership upheld by authenticity, rooted in empathy & remains grounded in unconditional positive regard for whoever I sit across from. In 2011, I began my devotion to a career working with children, adults & families with a wide range of strengths, needs & backgrounds in various mental health settings. My focus is in both intensive clinical psychotherapy & family systems counseling.

I draw on a range of approaches, helping my clients improve self-esteem, enhance relationship skills and develop effective coping strategies. In a goal-focused, collaborative way, informed by my training as a psychoanalyst, I help my clients understand and modify ineffective relational and behavioral patterns. I conceptualize clients' struggles in a holistic and integrative way, as I integrate cognitive-behavioral approaches with dynamic theory to bring about real change. Using a mix of cognitive, behavioral, and insight-oriented strategies, I have been successful in helping clients better manage relationships, anxiety & depression.

Are you feeling stuck, anxious, overwhelmed? Maybe the choices you’ve made are not working out the way you had planned? Are you feeling isolated, lost? Maybe you are trying to have a baby and it is way harder than you thought. Or the opposite, you are pregnant and you aren't sure you are ready for this! When we begin to look for a therapist, we acknowledge that part of ourselves that is ready for change and is willing to ask for help.

The goal of therapy is not to get you to hate your parents. Parents were usually doing their best and, being human, made mistakes. The task of therapy is often understanding how these past parental mistakes shaped the client's present patterns of thinking, feeling and interaction. I help clients identify and change these patterns and, in the process, resolve their feelings about the parents. I work best for clients: who want to understand themselves, who appreciate a thoughtful and safe space, and, who are willing to do the work to make that change happen.

Embrace the power of your heart: the heart's electical field is 60 times/magnetic field is 5000 times more powerful than the brain's. When our hearts are wounded through trauma, neglect or deprivation, we lose touch with the heart's power. Depression, anxiety, fear of intimacy, addiction, stuckness may follow. Building on a foundation of emotional safety, my work incorporates meditation, attending to emotional currents/body sensations and touch with permission to facilitate emotional work. Results include greater self-esteem, self-care, reduced stress/anxiety, authentic communication, healthier relationships, empowerment, healing. Intimacy/sexuality, money issues, parenting, GLBTP. Life coaching. Emotional for creative artists.

I believe that how we interact with others in the present often grew out of lessons learned earlier in life. Sometimes, people use strategies to cope with situations that once made sense but are no longer effective or useful. I also believe that everyone has strengths that can help guide decisions and behaviors in the present. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, where we become travelers on your journey; we look at concerns, explore their origins and feelings that arise, and discuss how to view and handle situations here and now.

Psychotherapy focuses on restoring perspective and building confidence in addressing life's challenges. My approach is interactive, collaborative, and based on an appreciation of each person's creative potential. Through asking questions, sharing knowledge and observations, and getting feedback, we work towards self-discovery and understanding. Together we focus on clarifying goals and identifying effective ways to meet them. Psychotherapy involves recognizing patterns, expectations, or beliefs that may have been helpful in the past, but are no longer. Addressing these patterns removes barriers to change. Strengths are identified and fostered, becoming the foundation for new ways of approaching things.

We all encounter moments in our lives that test our capacity to cope, and may cause us to feel ungrounded or overwhelmed.

I offer a calm, authentic, compassionate style and use an eclectic, active, relational approach grounded in psychodynamic training.

The people I see are interested in working hard on the core issues interfering with their relationships and work. Therapy happens in real time in one's life, and should aim to resolve these issues without delay. When I see people initially, and when I teach other therapists, I emphasize that a feeling that something real is happening, that it is having an impact, should be part of the process from the beginning, even if one recognizes there is a lot of work to do.

Making the first call is sometimes the hardest part of the therapeutic process. I commend you for your strength and courage in seeking help. One of the most important steps of pursuing counseling is finding a passionate, knowledgeable, and trusting therapist that you feel comfortable with. One that will sit with you through your difficult moments and help you to recognize or remind you of your strength. If a mood disorder is taking control of your life, I can help you to learn how to manage it. If you are experiencing challenges with your significant other(s) I can help you to improve the connection, understanding, and intimacy.
