BC Association of Clinical Counsellors | #20227
Hello and Welcome! My name is Samantha but please call me Sam.
I have a passion for guiding and supporting people like you that are looking to feel better but might not know what that route looks like. I strongly believe that it is my calling, or some may call it a soul path, to do this work. I work with the belief that every human being is perfectly unique and has the innate capacity for healing. However, what is needed for that healing is different for everyone. That being said, I help by using an intuitive and integrative counselling style that is backed by years of education and practice to tailor our sessions to your unique needs.
I take a modern, holistic, and spiritual approach, that creates a safe space without judgement. I believe in making a difference and getting to the root of your problem instead of just “mhmm-ing” and nodding at you from across the screen. I also like to sprinkle some humour into our sessions. My clients like that I am relatable, and that’s because I too have sought out mental health support in the past and continuously do so when I need it. I know what it’s like and now have the professional training to help guide you through it as well. Now, if you want a little bit more information about my areas of expertise, common modalities and the resume-y stuff, you can find that below.
