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. Wright, MSW, LCSW

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Samantha Wright. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

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!

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.
