“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” – Maya Angelou

Samara is a former student-athlete whose goal is to provide holistic mental health care to clients from all walks of life. She is driven by her passion for social justice, equality, and advocacy. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from North Carolina A&T State University and her master’s degree in mental health counseling from Northwestern University. Samara is now pursuing her Ph.D. in counselor education and supervision with an emphasis on counseling and social change. She has experience working with a variety of clients, including those who struggle with anxiety, depression, postpartum disorders, ADHD, PTSD, racial identity conflicts, pregnancy/early parenthood, and relationships.

Outside of counseling, Samara is also a doula, which gives her an additional perspective when working with pregnant people and new parents. She typically approaches her therapy work through a multicultural, psychodynamic lens, but also has experience implementing CBT and DBT. The approach to counseling work and course of treatment are always dependent on what’s best for the client.

In her free time, Samara loves spending time at home with her boyfriend, standard poodle, Delilah, and ball python, Simon. She loves to read, play sports, and spend time with family.
