As an adoptee, I have dealt with many similar issues to yours! I have a family systems, trauma informed, attachment-based approach which is very effective in working with adoptees.
Congratulations on taking the first step on the path towards your healing. Perhaps you are at transracial adoptee who wants to explore family issues, are considering searching for your "first family", or need to grieve the losses from being relinquished early on in life. Perhaps you need extra support in working through family issues with your adoptive family or first family after reunion. I am currently offering teletherapy sessions.

Many find themselves at a point in their lives where external support is necessary to navigate life's challenges. My clients seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some may come to therapy to deal with a specific struggle, such as anxiety or depression, while others initiate therapy during a difficult life transition. Even positive transitions, such as getting a new job or starting a new relationship can be stressful. Together, we will merge our resources to address these challenges in a safe environment by exploring patterns, processing events from the past, and creating plans for change in the future.

I incorporate narrative strategies, attachment-based therapy, mindfulness, and your creativity.
Finding the right therapist can be intimidating. My goal is to make the therapy process welcoming and transparent. I work particularly well with people who've been told they are "too sensitive" or who identify as Highly Sensitive People. My talent lies in treating anxiety, trauma and attachment/relationship wounds, as well as self-esteem. I support those who care for their communities: healers, caregivers, artists or those with creative practices, and activists. I've worked with ages 3-90 across class, race, gender, sexual orientation, & health status. Together, we can explore hard topics with sensitivity and humor.

You may be here because you or your child have been experiencing high levels of anxiety and worries. This may involve intrusive thoughts, doubts, and compulsive behaviors. You're looking for support, solutions, and underneath it all, to grow. Here, you can expect a nonjudgmental space, so that you or your child can feel safe in expressing and challenging your worries, unhelpful thoughts, and behaviors. Along with specialty treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum and Anxiety Disorders, I provide attachment-based approaches to treat symptoms of trauma that may be behind your worries, keeping you on guard and stuck in the past.

In addition, I draw from other therapeutic modalities in my work including: Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment, Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, Attachment-Based Family Therapy, & Narrative Techniques.
Seeking help is a sign of strength and health, not weakness or shame. You have a story and it matters. As an experienced mental health therapist, I feel honored to listen to your story and work together toward change and healing. My style is very warm, supportive, emotions-focused and collaborative. I place the utmost importance on developing a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship. Most often I work with individuals affected by issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, identity/self-esteem, attachment and relationship issues. I also help clients with other challenges including grief, self-harm, and chronic health issues.

I use emotion-focused and attachment-based lenses to address diagnoses such as anxiety and depression, as well as relational conflict in couples.
It is my belief that as people we strive to live happy, fulfilling lives. However, there are times that barriers get in the way of us actualizing this goal. Whether it is a recent change, persisting anxiety and depression, or a relationship that isn't going as you hoped, my aim is to empower you with the tools to overcome these barriers.

I approach therapy using a wide variety of gentle and effective healing-oriented approaches, including attachment-based , relational, depth-oriented psychotherapy, various body-based (somatic) therapies, inner child and parts work, as well as trauma interventions that involve strengthening your internal resources to deal with distress.
I am committed to supporting individuals, couples, and families as they navigate their unique life circumstances. I specialize in working with people with anxiety, depression, complex trauma and attachment wounds, parent-child relationships, and prenatal/postpartum struggles. I am also interested in supporting those who want to interrogate their familial systems and dynamics, unlearn harmful patterns of relating to yourself and others, and explore trans-generational patterns of trauma and recovery. Most importantly, I am invested in centering your lived experience and how it impacts the way you move through the world.

Knowing that therapy is not a one size fits all, I employ the use of play therapy, CBT, psychodynamic, structural family therapy, solution focused, narrative and attachment-based therapy.
Are you struggling in your relationships? Maybe disruptive behavior is making it difficult to connect with your child or teenager. Maybe you are struggling in your relationship with your partner or even in the relationship you have with yourself. Hi! I’m Samantha and I work together with my clients, who include children, adolescents, adults, and families, to find realistic and creative solutions to the struggles they are facing. I enjoy drawing on the strengths of my clients and being a part of their journey of making the changes they want in their lives.

I specialize in care for children, teens, young adults, and families: 1) Building cooperation and openness in place of defiance and lying; 2) Cultivating self-control in place of tantrums and aggression; 3) Fostering contentment and self-confidence in place of sadness and worry; and 4) Developing genuine closeness in place of clinging and irritability. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience addressing core relational issues of protection, loyalty, authority, trust, fairness, and forgiveness. I help families heal from generational wounds and allow children develop appropriate individuation, using the secure base of a trusting parent-child relationship.

I use a mix of attachment-based therapies, CBT, DBT and systems theories to support my clients.
Finding a therapist can be tough and I empathize with you in this process! I imagine you're dealing with a great deal of stress in this moment - Perhaps you are experiencing a big transition, perfectionism, questions about your identities, your roles, your relationships, or your career. You may also be dealing with grief/loss, depression, anxiety, discrimination, assault, or eating disorders. If this is the case, I am happy to support you as you work towards clarity and peace of mind. In addition to individual counseling, I provide couples and family therapy, as well as supportive coaching for parents with struggling kids/teens.

*Currently accepting new teletherapy clients only* I am a registered, board-certified art psychotherapist and licensed professional counselor. I specialize in working with individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and eating disorders. While not all of my clients use art making in session, I have found that when it is hard to talk about pain, a picture is worth a thousand words. Art psychotherapy requires no skill or artistic background, and can offer you a chance to express yourself in a new and transformative way.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and trauma-focused therapy modalities, and incorporate attachment-based theories into my work.
I am passionate about helping individuals who struggle with self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. In particular, I enjoy working with adolescents, teens, and young adults, although I see clients of all ages. My goal as your therapist is to help you let go of the parts of yourself that no longer support your best interests and goals. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the catalyst for client growth and that humor is an effective therapeutic modality that can optimize recovery and facilitate client empowerment.

Over time, we develop defenses and boundaries that may have served a purpose and provided us with protection or comfort. However, these same methods of self-preservation can later become constricting and block us from growth as our life, needs, and relationships change. In our therapeutic partnership, rooted in transparency, reciprocity, compassion and non-judgment, you can shift your awareness to shed light on these patterns and learn to release them in a safe, healthy, and positive way. If you are willing and open to explore these patterns in a present and honest way, you have so much to gain from the therapy experience.
