My hope is to create a space where you and I can work collaboratively on whatever issue brings you in, and that I can create a warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment.
I am Samantha, you can call me Sam. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and have completed my Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology. I currently practice under the supervision of Yoshie Martinez.
It can be hard to be vulnerable and open about what is challenging for us and I know that doing so takes a lot of courage. I became interested in this field at a very young age. It started with a love for people and grew into a deep appreciation for the impact that relationships with others can have. I realized my passion for connection and recognized the healing power it can have and thought to myself, that’s what I want to be doing. Building and supporting connection to oneself and others.
My hope as a psychotherapist is to create a space where you and I can work collaboratively together on whatever issue brings you in and that I can create a warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment. I offer individual, couples and family counselling for a wide range of issues.
My practice is informed by several models. The primary ones are relationally oriented and focused on the person. I am interested in NARM (Neuroaffective relational model), the Person-Centered approach as well as Somatic Experiencing. My practice is also heavily informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. I also provide Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD. I am currently being trained in EMDR so please reach out to me to inquire about that if you are interested.
I am looking forward to working with you!
