About Me

Hello and welcome. My name is Sametris. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Daytona Beach, FL I have been providing mental health services in the community and prison/jail setting for about 8 years. I have works with clients with a wide range of concerns to include depression, anxiety, anger issues, family and relationship issues, life changes, grief, eating disorders, and disorders that include everything from schizophrenia to borderline personality disorder. I have also helped people with addiction issues and those with histories of trauma and abuse.

I am a listener. Many times people want to be heard and when they are able to verbally express their thoughts and feelings they are often one step closer to identifying their needs. I do not believe in labels and judgement. I believe in growth, self-betterment, and change. I care. I care about the well being of people. My approach includes person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, existential therapy, solutions focused therapy. Not everything works for everyone and I like to meet people where they are and tailor treatment to meet specific needs.

Self-care is important. If we don't care for ourselves, how can we effectively care for the people around us? I want everyone to be able to experience the joy that life brings. We all deserve a piece of happiness. Even at our lowest points, and darkest times, there is something to look forward to. There is still light at the end of the tunnel. The sun is always shining somewhere. Let's work together to find it.

I look forward to working with you.
