Hi there! I'm Samantha, a licensed counselor in Minneapolis, MN. I provide individual therapy to tweens/teens and adults ages 11+. As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I have received specialized training in treating every person as a whole, and I help clients heal by taking the entire human being and their life experiences into consideration for assessment and treatment purposes. The goal is to help you strike a balance in taking care of your mind, body and spirit.
I specialize in holistic and cognitive behavioral therapy and, depending on the concerns I am treating, I may incorporate other evidence-based treatment models into the therapeutic process.
My areas of focus include:
Anxiety, worry, and stress reduction
Self-esteem, self-acceptance, and confidence
Communication, boundaries, and self-expression
Relationships and social connections
Self-care and life balance
If you are feeling increasingly stressed, anxious, or immobilized by perfectionism, you have come to the right place. I'm glad you are here!
Coming to therapy does not mean you are crazy, that there is something drastically wrong with you, or that you need to be fixed. Coming to therapy is taking care of yourself, finding security in who you are, and working through the challenges that are holding you back. Therapy might just be exactly what you need.
Finding the right therapist is time consuming and daunting. You spend loads of time searching profiles, reading about therapeutic approaches, and wondering if, or when, you should reach out. If you think I'm a good fit, connect with me. I'd love to help you get started!
