About me

My name is Samuel and I have deep respect and admiration for any person willing to seek improvement in a therapeutic environment. I was born in Ethiopia, raised in Maryland. I have worked as a counselor/therapist since 2004 and have had great success working with people to improve their quality of life. My approach to therapy is to treat each person as a unique individual with potential to improve emotional health. Oftentimes, emotional injuries such as abandonment, betrayal, injustice, rejection, humiliation and loss can cause long term damage, preventing us from experiencing peace of mind or joy. Similar to physical injuries, emotional injuries can heal if treated with the proper amount of care and nurture. Therapy is a tool to learn how to heal emotional injuries, and trauma, in order to have the strength to strive towards our ultimate potential. Depression, anxiety, anger and many other symptoms are often the byproduct of unresolved emotional injuries. Also, therapy is able to increase self-awareness in order to form better relationships with loved ones and stop a cycle of despair and self-destructive behavior. I wish you the best in your journey towards wellbeing.

Samuel is such an incredible therapist who is so positive and bubbly on all of our calls. He listens well and helps guide me to answers that I am looking for instead of telling me outright as he adds his amazing expertise about healthy mindsets, resilience, and emotional injuries to my own personal situation. His reinforcement of self observation, self validation, and self compassion during our weekly sessions has helped those practices become second nature to me now and my self confidence has skyrocketed!

Samuel has me talking about my issues in a honest manner that I didn’t think was possible. Very powerful therapy!

Samuel is my go-to resource for getting clarity and helping me to understand the source of my often turbulent emotions, something I have always struggled with. Whenever I am dealing with an issue of anxiety/fear, his gently probing questions brings me through the process with him until the origin of the fear/anxiety make sense to me, and I can move on with more confidence for the next time. Samuel's partnership has been a force toward mental wellness, and I am grateful to have the luxury of working with this gifted and nurturing therapist.

He really is a very kind and genuine, down to Earth person. I'm shocked that the system you all have has found a therapist for me that actually can relate to me, and just understand me so easily. I look forward to keeping him as my therapist for a long time.

I really appreciate how Sam was able to pinpoint what issue my emotions were coming from, and how he challenged my assumptions. When he asked what the benefits verses the down side, it was an important perspective I didn’t have. I’m feeling hopeful that I can grow out of this and have hope finally.

We've only had 2 sessions so far, but the things I've been learning have been great. He makes the session feel free, comfortable and fulfilling. Looking forward to the progress that is to be made in the future.

Working with Samuel Woldenmichael has been great over our last four sessions. Each session he takes the time to let me speak about my various concerns and provides me with tangible resources to battle them.

He is very attentive in each session and patient as I try to work through my thoughts.
