Samantha is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Provisional Registered Art Therapist (ATR-P) who graduated from Edinboro University with a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Art Therapy. Sam specializes in the use of Art Therapy in practice. She values connection and expression through the use of art interventions and creative projects and sees value in creative hobbies as an outlet for stress. Her creative approach to therapy is a unique way of solving problems, promoting resiliency, and communicating with others. She is passionate about working with young adults and individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, health anxiety, or are having trouble with managing stress. Art therapy is not just for those who believe they are the best artist; it’s for everyone. Engaging in creative activities helps us to lower stress, process our emotions, helps us focus, and encourages neurological connections in the brain. It is a unique and non-threatening way to connect about your thoughts and feelings for those who are new to therapy or are hesitant to make connections in the therapeutic process. Sam’s relaxed, person-centered approach aims to utilize art-making in a way that is beneficial and relaxing to each individual she works with while encouraging you to try new things, get creative, and work through problems.
Samantha accepts both insurance and self-pay clients, including those with the following insurance plans: BCBS, Optum, and Aetna.
