Samantha earned her MA in Integral Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) and is currently completing her AASECT Sex Therapy Certification at CIIS. She holds an associate license and is supervised by Jessica Wallace, LMFT.

Samantha’s heartfelt drive to be in witnessing and felt presence of our deepest and innermost experience had guided her at an early age to pursue an embodied path to healing and awakening into the truth of who we are in relationship. 

Samantha offers individual, couples, and group depth psychotherapy. She holds a sex-positive, intersectional feminist, and social justice oriented frame that is rooted in attachment theory, depth psychology, and body-oriented approaches to sex and relationship therapy. Her passion for helping individuals and couples heal and recover from personal, collective, and intergenerational traumas and ruptures is held in connection with honoring each individuals expression of themselves with another from the inside out.

Samantha’s work is shared through a client-centered approach and has been trained to utilize the following modalities to inform her treatment: Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Sex Therapy, Gestalt, Somatics, dreamwork, mindfulness, breathwork, and Non-violent Communication techniques.

She specializes in matters related to sex and relationship therapy: intimacy work, communication and conflict, conscious uncoupling/conscious coupling, open/polyamorous dynamics, sex addiction / inhibition / infidelity, boundaries and agreements, childhood sexual abuse, sexual shame, body image, and sexual dysfunctions (i.e. erectile and female orgasmic dysfunctions). All to assist in developing a prosperous and healthy sexuality, attachment, and secure felt sense in one’s body, mind, heart, spirit, and sexuality in relationship. 

Samantha has extensive experience working with diverse individuals and couples, especially those who identify as LGBTQIA+, alternative lifestyle / relationship (i.e. polyamory/non-monogamy, and BDSM/Kink).
