About me

My name is Dr. Samantha Cole. I have a doctorate degree in clinical social work. I am also a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with 19 years of experience in serving young adults, couples and families. I value applying evidence-based practices in my work with client. I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and I often incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into my work with clients. I believe firmly in an approach that acknowledges the natural strengths and resilience of each that I serve. I also believe in the power of connection within the change process. I think that an authentic, trusting relationship can be reached no matter the distance. My areas of specialty include adult populations both male and female. When possible, I like to do work conjunction with other professionals to get a comprehensive view of how best to help you. Currently, I work with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulty, self-harm, low self-esteem, grief/loss, and trauma. I look forward to building a connection with you and helping you find the answers that you most need.

Samantha has helped me so much through my struggle with anxiety. She is kind, supportive and helps you create a plan towards your goals. So many thoughts that used to consume my mind are no longer there. I never thought i’d be able to feel in control of my anxiety. It will take time before my anxiety completely goes away, however with time it gets easier thanks to all the skills Samantha has shown me. I am very greatful for her and would recommend her to anyone struggling with anxiety.

Dr Cole was there at my lowest moment and she helped us to continue fighting for our marriage. We wouldn’t be together now without her advice and knowledge.

Dr. Cole immediately helped me better understand my situation and is working on getting me the right tools to fix myself and my relationship. She is a very good listener and provides thoughtful feedback.

Dr. Cole is very down to earth and easy to talk to. There is no awkward silence which is nice. She does really well with keeping the conversation going and gives you good advice on how to handle situations. I would suggest her to any one of my friends or family. She is a genuine, caring person and I have nothing but good to say about her!
