Hello, my name is Samantha (I go by Sam) and I look forward to working with you to understand and overcome your mental health difficulties. Depending on your needs, we can collaboratively understand the symptoms you suffer from and work toward improving your overall mental well-being.

I embody an authentic and compassionate approach to therapy, specializing in psychodynamic psychotherapy with over 8 years of experience in this framework. I primarily practice Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), a form of psychotherapy that helps people to recognise and overcome their automatic patterns (thoughts, feelings and behaviours) of how they view and experience themselves, others and the world in general. It is these automatic patterns that are responsible for the majority of psychological problems that people suffer from.

I have previously worked in private practice and psychiatric hospital settings, providing both individual and group therapy programs for the treatment of depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and PTSD.

I consult at Glenelg on Mondays through to Thursday. I offer after-hours appointments on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
