M.Ed., Counselling Psychology, Registered Psychotherapist
Contact Glebe Psychotherapy to be added to Samantha's waiting list
My interest and passion lie in working with individuals to overcome obstacles that are keeping them from living their most fulfilling lives. I believe strongly that a safe therapeutic environment and a good working relationship between therapist and client are the most important factors that lead to real change. I am consistently amazed by the resiliency and resources I see within clients and am always striving to help foster and draw upon these in sessions.
I have experience working with several presenting issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma/complex trauma, emotion regulation issues, relationship and sex issues, and social issues. I have a particular interest in working with individuals who have experienced trauma or complex trauma and helping them to understand and overcome the difficulties their past experiences have created in their lives.
I work from an integrative approach, wherein I draw heavily from Psychodynamic Therapy and incorporate elements from Client-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Somatic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and others. I strive to tailor my approach and treatment to each client and their unique needs.
I hold an M.Ed. in Counselling Psychology with training in individual and group counselling from the University of Ottawa and am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
