About Me

Welcome!!! My name is Samantha Wright. I am a non judgmental human being, Therapist, friend, confidant, and coach, that wants to help people be happy in their lives and with their existence and personal experiences. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Indiana with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist and consultant with community mental health, private practice, addiction therapy, teaching, DCS consultant, and in home health care assessments as well as hospice counseling, and I have been with Betterhelp for five years.

First, I can help you... I work to offer solution focused guidance to offer immediate relief. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger, lack of motivation and self esteem, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD, addictions, sexual issues, sexual identity issues, and personality disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma,emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, transgender issues, spiritual issues, and other moral dilemmas.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and open minded. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, and the work of how to change our thinking, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek 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 look forward to working with you!I have had many life experiences and have worked with young children to persons' facing end of life issues. I am adaptable and open minded. All it takes is one time communicating with me and you will know that I can help you on the journey that you are ready to take. I want to help you, we can set up a live chat, a video chat, and /or a phone call!! I make myself available as needed by appointment. Let me know how I can help you. I am here for you. Samantha C.

Written by A.D on May 02, 2017 after counseling with Samantha for 3 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, and sleeping

I was really really lonely and depressed when I learned about this webpage. It gave me Samantha as a counselor. It really helped to talk to someone. Samantha is not judgmental, you can see that she has a lot of experience in the job she is doing, and just by talking to her, I was feeling better day by day. She gave some nice advice which helped cope with life and problems. I think she is a really good person that helped me in some of my darkest days, and I am thankful for that!

For the most part, Samantha is great. She always knows what to say and how to help you through any issues you are experiences. She also sends great weekly advice!

Written by N.I on Mar 23, 2017 after counseling with Samantha for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, family, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, anger, and career

She is so easy to go with. I mean from the very first minute we started our session it felt like I've known her for long and it felt easy to talk to her because of this. She helped me to see many things I didn't notice before, to think in new and positive way.

Very nice and warm person and talks to me like a friend, I feel comfortable talking with her.

Written by J.O on Aug 29, 2016 after counseling with Samantha for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Samantha is kind and patient and also challenges me when appropriate. Her ear and wisdom have been the backdrop to a year full of huge emotional, geographical and circumstantial changes, both ups and downs. Her consistency, follow-through and compassion in what sometimes seems like a compassionless world is an oasis.

Written by M.J on Jul 13, 2016 after counseling with Samantha for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and depression

Sam is very compassionate, and resourceful. She helped me find a way for me to validate myself, and the chat experience with her is pleasant, and feels safe.

Samantha is a very caring and supportive person. I love how she can make me feel like I'm just talking to a friend, which really makes me feel comfortable to talk to her about any thing. I am so very thankful that I have her. She is wonderful and I would give her 5 stars any day!

Written by A.D on Feb 05, 2016 after counseling with Samantha for 4 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and anger

I love Samantha and appreciate being able to send a message at anytime. I can get whatever is weighing on me off my chest immediately. It is therapeutic to write out what is going on. It feels great to have a licensed professional to read what is going on with you and provide constructive feedback. I believe that life is a journey of becoming the best version of yourself and I very much appreciate Samantha's counsel. Thank you for what you do :)

Written by C.H on Jan 27, 2016 after counseling with Samantha for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, and depression

Thank you. I felt so bad and I felt my world was crashing, but Samantha Wright helped me to understand to think about me instead of the person causing my pain and what do I really need with someone who don't care as much as I do about the relationship. I feel so much better and I'm thinking about me first now. Again, thank you.

Undoubtedly the best therapist I've ever had. Samantha isn't just a "regular therapist", she is a caring, and kind woman who has your best interest in her heart. She is an amazing woman, and I am so lucky I got paired with her. There is no better fit in my opinion!!! Thanks Sam!!!!

Written by K.I on Dec 14, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 5 months on issues concerning parenting

Sam has been wonderful! She took the time to understand the situation I was going through and provided thoughtful advice which has really helped me! The ability to message her on my schedule and know that she would get back to me was really helpful.

Written by S.H on Oct 20, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 2 weeks on issues concerning family

Samantha has been amazing. She's always fast to respond and has given suggestions to help that fit with my lifestyle. She is very easy to talk to as well.

Written by S.H on Oct 19, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, grief, eating, parenting, self esteem, anger, career, bipolar, and depression

I enjoy Sam's help a lot. She has so much personal experience in all the issues I'm dealing w. It makes taking her advice much easier because she knows exactly what I'm going through. I do wish she was easier to get a hold of. Many times I don't hear back from her in as timely a manner as I'd like but her advice is so good I don't want to find a new counselor.

Written by A.S on Oct 10, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Samantha has been very kind and helpful so far. When I didn't message for a little while as I was having a busy and tough week, she noticed my absence and reached out to see how I was which I really appreciate! I'm thankful for her compassion and this safe space to work through things!

Samantha did a great job connecting with me immediately. She's a good listener and showed no judgement; rather, only provided me with supportive advice. She's very resourceful, as well and gave me many tools that I can take with me in the future.

She seems like what I have been looking for in a counselor. She seems laid back and easy to talk to, so far.

Written by E.M on Aug 13, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 1 month

I just started my membership and unfortunately had to cut short after just a few weeks. I was matched with Samantha Wright. Although I didn't get to spend as much time with her like I wanted, she was very persistent even when I couldn't reply to messages for days. I can tell she really enjoys helping people and she has given me some very helpful advice. Thank you!

Written by K.I on Aug 09, 2015 after counseling with Samantha for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, and self esteem

I am very pleased with Samantha as my counselor, she is empathetic, kind, and very patient with all of my melt downs and rants. Always encouraging me to redirect the negatives in my life and focus on the good, calm, clean and wholesome aspects as opposed to the putrid sickness surrounding me everywhere. She is adept in the holistic approach which I respect and appreciate.
