MEET SAMANTHA

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate living and working in Asheville, North Carolina. 

I became interested in mental health after struggling to manage my own depression and anxiety. Through this experience, I learned (and I am still learning), that mental health and happiness rarely happen by accident. Having a fun, happy and healthy life takes practice and intention.   

When I am not at the office, I love to listen to podcasts, paint my nails, discover new restaurants around town, and hike around the Blue Ridge with my partner and our dog.  

On the Blog 

On the blog you will find simple, actionable information that will help you take steps toward the life that you have always wanted--- whatever that looks like for you.   My goal is to help you to be the best version of you.   

Live in North Carolina or internationally, and interested in receiving distance/online counseling?
