Licensed Counseling

Acceptance + Commitment + Independence


I provide clinical expertise and guidance in a safe and supportive environment.

Adults, teenagers, and Couples are welcome

Do you feel trapped by circumstances beyond your control? Are you unable to escape negative thoughts? Have you forgotten why you made the decisions that led you to this moment? Talk therapy can offer a way forward. Therapy can be a safe space to catch your breath, to talk out ideas that feel strange or risky, and to devise a new strategy for reconnecting with your best self.

With over 8 years of experience providing individual therapy and related services such as career counseling, case management, and mental health assessment, I have developed expertise in assisting people facing a wide range of psychiatric issues and challenging transitions.

All services offered are LGBTQIA affirming.

Client Testimonials


"Sam is a patient, attentive listener who genuinely cares.  He allows you to open up at your own pace and seems to ask questions at the perfect time for you to have an "a-ha" moment about yourself.  I would recommend Sam especially to anyone who is highly sensitive and/or anxious since he is so warm and welcoming."  -C


"Sam is the easiest person on the planet I've ever talked to. He listens without judgement, is professional yet relatable, and can give spot-on analysis and advice pertaining to whatever you're talking about. Highly recommended." -K
