My name is Sam, and I'm a psychoanalytic therapist who is passionate about helping adults and teens navigate life's complexities. Whether you're an adult seeking deeper understanding of yourself or a young person embarking on your journey, I offer a safe and supportive space for exploration and growth. My approach is rooted in psychoanalysis and depth psychology, which delves into the unconscious mind. We'll work together to uncover patterns, beliefs, and experiences that may be shaping your current challenges. This can include chronic behaviors, relationship difficulties, or simply a feeling of being stuck. The therapeutic process can be quirky and surprising, just like life itself! I believe in fostering a collaborative environment where humor and curiosity can be powerful tools for self-discovery. But at its core, my practice is built on empathy and a genuine desire to see you thrive.
