Hi, my name is Samuel. I am licensed in Florida with 5+ years of counseling experience with specialties in LGBT+/queer issues, autism, ADHD, family conflicts, and trauma. It takes a lot of strength and bravery to reach out and ask for help.
I believe in treating clients with compassion and an understanding of the context of their lives. If you're struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, anger management, relationship or family conflict, parenting, or navigating the challenges of society, I want to help. I take an eclectic approach using person-centered, systems, trauma-informed, and CBT evidence-based frameworks while drawing from a variety of styles for the coping skills and techniques best suited for you, individually.
It's important to have a counselor who will take into account your worldview and experience, including how that's affected by neurodiversity, race and culture, disability, gender, and queer identity, as well as the intersection of these.
I am here to offer a safe atmosphere where you will not be judged for who you are or what you feel, and to help you build up skills in order to better the quality of your life like you deserve.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, Abandonment, Adoption and Foster Care, Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Blended Family Issues, Body Image, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Dissociation, Divorce and Separation, Emptiness, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Gender Dysphoria, Guilt and Shame, Impulsivity, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress, Prejudice and Discrimination, Self-Love, Sexuality, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues

Samuel is wonderful!!! He provided the opportunity to feel heard. He took the time to learn the context of the items we were working through. I so appreciate his time, understanding, and helpful space that he has created. Thank you!
