Hi There! I'm grateful you've stopped by my profile! I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania with over 8 years of experience working as a clinician with children, adolescents, and adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, traumas, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and many more. My experiences vary in depth and breadth and I'd love to discuss and share more about these experiences as I think they've enabled me in developing to work with a variety of needs.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, creating a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive space to speak freely. My approach is one of an "integrationist", combining cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and positive psychology principles. I utilize a variety of approaches depending on the individual. My hope is to develop the rapport to discuss various treatment options and modalities to use. I also like to process our treatment together to ensure our work is going well and each client feels beneficial progress is being made so that I can tailor my treatment approach as needed to meet the individual's needs in the moment as well.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I am looking forward to speaking with you and seeing how I might work with you to take that first step.
I look forward to working with you! Thank you again for reaching out!

I really appreciate that my counselor, Samantha Silverberg, has demonstrated three traits I value and needed:
Pushes me to delve deeper.
Samantha Silverberg has been an amazing therapist for me. We have had phone & message interactions. She got to understand my issues right away & jumped to help me immediately. She has been MUCH BETTER than any therapist I've had in 16+ years of therapy/counseling. She is VERY easy to talk to & listens attentively. Ready at any time to offer you advice or help on any issues you have or that suddenly arise. She is AMAZING!
Samantha has been such a huge help and calming presence in my life since I started with BetterHelp. She responds very quickly to my messages and brings my anxieties back to reality. I really trust and value her opinion and she has already helped me get through rough spots much easier than I think it could have gone otherwise. With her guidance I have made some pretty big changes in my life that improved my wellbeing. She follows your lead with what you are comfortable with and makes suggestions along the way to guide you. She also offers a variety of ways to have sessions which is useful depending on your situation. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in trying BetterHelp.
I really enjoyed talking to Samantha. It was a very calm, supportive, caring environment. She's helped me through several different aspects of my life... communication, relaxing through meditation and yoga, parenting, and career. I'm very pleased with the whole experience. Thank you so much!
Working with Samantha has been wonderful. It's very easy to stick to our conversations between messages and still feel like I'm getting the help I need. Everything is at my pace, which was very important for me.
Samantha is great! She listens and helps me keep things in perspective.
Very happy with responses.
Sam is the best!
Samantha is a great listener, is extremely down to earth and I find her incredibly easy to talk to. Our conversations so far have been illuminating and I already see the affect it's having in my life. Sometimes, with a good listener's support and subtle guidance, you can talk your own way into an extremely helpful truth. This is what I've always found most helpful about therapists, and Samantha has me smacking my forehead in the best way every time.
Samantha is very responsive and supportive. I feel free to speak my mind because she is nonjudgemental and empathetic. She has a fresh and positive perspective which helps me rethink situations to view them in a positive light.
Samantha is both personable and knowledgeable and I love her guidance.
Samantha's been great! She asks the right questions to help me talk through situations to calm myself down.
Samantha Silverberg is absolutely the best! From day one she was caring and understanding of my situation. She treated me like a friend would have treated me and spoke to me in terms I understood. She kept her promises and followed up with me to make sure I was ok, she made time to talk to me and she showed compassion. I was skeptical of online counseling at first, but because of my work schedule it was impossible to make physical appointments with local counseling in my area. I will definitely recommend BetterHelp to anyone who needs it.
Things happen for a reason. I came on to this site looking for someone to just hear me out and it brought me to Samantha. She's been an incredible help as I navigate through some uncertain times in my life.
