Greetings and thank you for visiting my page! My name is Dr. Samantha Knox and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (DC), a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (Maryland), and a National Certified Counselor. I have nearly 10 years of experience in mental health. I obtained my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Dillard University, my Masters in Counseling/ Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Trinity Washington University, and my Doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from Marymount University.
I have experience in a variety of settings: community based mental health, in-home counseling, school based counseling, hospital settings, private practice, and higher education. I also have a private practice, Aya Behavioral Health, LLC which is located in Washington, DC.
I work with an array of presenting concerns including adjustment disorder; anxiety; depression; trauma; racial identity issues; and LGBTQ related issues. My counseling approach is culturally relevant and sensitive. I also employ Cognitive Behavioral, Narrative, and Adlerian techniques. I have received training in EMDR and have begun the certification process.

Dr. Knox is knowledgable and kind and inviting and quick to make helpful connections and recommend appropriate resources and I’ve never felt as safe or as heard with any other therapist.
