About

Healing Mind~Body~Spirit

The Samaritan Health and Living Center offers a range of therapeutic services with a highly trained group of clinicians. All of the therapists at the Samaritan Center believe in the inherent ability of all individuals to become healthy and happy in their lives and their relationships. We focus on empowering our clients to make positive changes in their lives through recognizing dysfunctional patterns learned early in life that can be changed by healing old wounds and mindfully choosing new behaviors. We work from a holistic perspective which can include the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one's life, depending on the needs and wishes of the client. Please click on the link to our website to learn more about our talented Staff.

Trauma-informed therapy

All of the therapists at the Samaritan Center have been extensively trained in trauma-informed therapy, including EMDR. This therapeutic approach allows us to uncover and uproot the sources of much of the dysfunction in people's lives which is interfering with healthy, happy relationships. Click on the website to learn more about this powerful healing modality. Another powerful therapeutic approach, like EMDR, is Sandtray Therapy which is extremely effective in working through issues using the whole brain, as opposed to just the part that works with language and talking. Children and adolescents, as well as adults, sometimes find Sandtray to be an easier way to engage in the therapy process.

Learning new ways to thrive

Much of individual therapy is an opportunity to unlearn painful reactions, but there are also opportunities to learn and practice new and healthier responses to life's challenges through group therapy.
