Samantha has been working in the field for the past three years. She diligently works to create a calm, caring, and empathic environment so that she and the client can build a trusting and solid working alliance. Samantha recognizes that individuals are also a part of a larger context and, as a result, strives to guide clients to understand that they can have control over the way they manage and cope with stressors caused by external systems.
