Hi, my name is Samiyrah! I am a Licensed Practicing Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with 11+ years of experience working in the Mental Health field. I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor in Science in Counseling, and have attained a Master of Science in Education in School and Mental Health Counseling. Most recently, I have received my certification from Pacifica Institute. I have worked with clients facing a wide range of concerns including anger management, depression, anxiety, academic distress, phase of life/transitions, ADHD and relationship/marital issues.
My approach is person-center and I use an eclectic style. I believe in the importance of creating a judgement free-zone that is conducive to deep healing work. I integrate modalities of CBT, psychodynamic, solution-focused, motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care seamlessly to meet you where you are, wherever you in your healing process. Taking the first step towards beginning the therapeutic journey takes tremendous strength and courage. I commend you and hope to work together real soon.
When not providing therapeutic support, I enjoy spending time hiking with my children, painting, gardening, traveling, pampering my cat "Jake" and two African-spurred tortoises or just relaxing with a cup of tea and a good movie.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Samiyrah Weaver. 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've only had one session and Ms. Weaver was mostly asking for background information. She was responsive and i could tell she understood what i was telling her and was compassionate with my situation.
Samiyrah has been amazing so far and I look forward to continuing our sessions.
Love my connection with the therapist.
She creates a very space where I feel comfortable to express myself and discuss issues i wouldn’t normally feel comfortable saying out loud. She provides insightful feedback as well as “homework” that helps work through issues.
Samiyrah is knowledgeable and offers great advice on coping and makes you understand the process of healing and feelings. Ever since I have been seeing her I have been feeling a lot better and like I’m taking control of my life. She is above and beyond professional and also a great therapist
