I have experience treating depression , anxiety, trauma, gender dysphoria, and domestic violence.
I like to take time to get to know each person and build a relationship with them that conveys trust, respect, and understanding. My goal throughout much of my career in mental health has been to be a support for individuals and to get the honor to walk with people in their journey to become the best versions of themselves. If I am chosen as your therapist, you can expect to be met with empathy, support, respect, and understanding. When anyone comes through my door, they can expect not to be judged or shamed for any of their history or previous experiences.

My clinical practice includes many entrepreneurs and business owners struggling with depression , anxiety, or experiencing performance issues.
I like to the heart of the matter quickly and then work with my clients to co-creative solutions tailored to their specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' The deeper work may be related to the past, but it also could be doing a deeper dive into your current life and finding healthier ways to cope. I am trained in leadership assessment and coaching and I consult with family-owned businesses.

My goal is to provide a safe place to explore themes such as gender and racial identity, chronic pain, trauma, depression , anxiety, and emotion regulation.
Accepting new clients as of January 2023… Vulnerability: while rewarding, can be daunting. It is not easy to let someone into your internal landscape and I deeply value the possibility of learning yours. My name is Sam and I work with clients to become intimately comfortable with the buried, hidden, and beautifully impactful aspects of themselves. Giving these aspects refuge and support to become known, leads to a deeper understanding of oneself and greater harmony within. I work with clients in regards to identity, purpose, hope, sustainable change, and connection to self, others, and environment.

Not interested in taking medications? At The Well Being, I provide my clients with 10+ years of experience as a therapist, and an opportunity for them to begin using cardiovascular exercise as an effective mental health "medication" . At The Well Being, I offer traditional outpatient counseling services, largely based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (I was trained at the Beck Institute), while also providing the means for exercise to become a key component of your treatment. This is an alternative evidence-based approach for those who aren't interested in taking medications, or a more comprehensive alternative for those who are.

Experiencing trauma of any kind can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. It can stop us in our tracks and upend life as we know it. Although it can seem impossible, healing from trauma is possible. My hope is to help others go from surviving to thriving despite life’s challenges. Facing trauma can be lonely and confusing, but you don't have to sort through it on your own. Trauma is complicated and one can experience a range of emotions such as: anger, grief, fear, sadness, anxiety and guilt. I would love to help you work through these feelings and move towards healing and peace.

One of our most important relationships is the one we have with ourselves. How we talk to ourselves, treat ourselves, and view ourselves impacts our daily living and the relationships around us. Therapy provides an opportunity to gain awareness of how we relate to ourselves and others. We begin to recognize our relational patterns and understand how these patterns were developed and are maintained. Through this self-understanding, we can begin to learn new ways of being with ourselves and others.

In my practice, I recognize that as people we have many different emotions and experiences that drive us. Sometimes we do not understand what we are feeling, why we are feeling it, and why we are responding the way that we are. That is why I am passionate about helping my clients create a better understanding of themselves that creates a positive change to bring healing.

Are you having trouble in your relationship? Increasing arguments, lost trust, resentment, distance and problems with intimacy are some of the issues that make having a happy relationship seem impossible. Maybe you are not sure if your relationship can ever be happy and healthy again or if it will even survive. I believe there is hope for struggling couples to become stronger, healthier and happier by getting clear about why they are where they are and where they want to be -- individually and as a couple -- and what it will take to get there.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
