About Dr. Samantha

I am deeply committed to helping each of my clients reach their full potential and meet their specific treatment goals. My treatment approach is rooted in providing services that are effective and supported by research. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) interventions to help alleviate symptoms quickly. My clinical work is also heavily enriched by scientific studies on self-compassion and resilience.

While I value evidenced based interventions, my approach is flexible. I am trained in psychodynamic, family systems, and interpersonal therapies and often incorporate several approaches throughout the treatment process.

Overall, I aim to provide a warm and safe environment for my clients and value building authentic connections built on trust and compassion.


I completed my undergraduate studies at Florida State University and received my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the Florida School of Professional Psychology.  I have experience working at college counseling centers, community mental health centers, and residential programs for at risk teens.

When I'm not at the office you can find me cycling, playing volleyball at the beach, or hanging out with my one of my siblings, nieces and nephews.
