Sam is committed to collaborating with clients with Eating Disorders, especially individuals looking for support with binge eating or who have had bariatric surgery and need mental health support while using a Health at Every Size framework. Sam also applies an attachment and recovery-oriented framework to support clients with complex trauma like childhood abuse and neglect, individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, those who have challenges with emotion regulation, or who are struggling with grief and loss, Mood Disorders, as well as sensitive souls and emotionally-gifted folks who are feeling overwhelmed.

She is able to provide an eclectic and individualized approach using a variety of modalities like DBT, CBT, Mindfulness, CPT, ACT, EFT, Narrative Therapy and Trauma Therapy. Whatever approaches are used, Sam practices with a sense of humour, honesty and authentic dedication. She doesn’t just nod along and say things like, “And how does that make you feel?”
