“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

Hello! My name is Samantha Vamosy and I am so happy you are interested in working together. I know starting a therapy process whether you have before or this is your first time can be scary and uncomfortable. I hope we can work through this time together making this journey as helpful and special as possible. My passions have always aligned with helping others and listening in a compassionate, non-judgmental, and curious way. I find real change occurs when a person can fully explore their life in a holistic way. Whether it is current mental health symptoms or past traumas holistic healing is possible for everyone. I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling at Fairfield University and achieved my LPC after completing 3000 hours in an outpatient clinic for substance abuse. I value a person-centered approach that focuses on strength-based and solution-focused techniques. I also incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy to be able to challenge unhealthy patterns that no longer serve you. Together we will identify goals, by exploring what is and is not working and be able to collaboratively come up with solutions and learning tools to better overcome barriers to success. We will work at your pace and readjust goals and steps as we go along. Through these techniques we will work together to identify maladaptive thoughts that contribute to avoidance behaviors and fears that keep us stuck, feeling even more anxious and often depressed. Overcoming life transitions, challenges, and uncertainty can be difficult and no one should have to face these decisions on their own!

Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who believe that healing and growth are possible for everyone, regardless of their circumstances. My goal as a counselor is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Through active listening, empathy, and unconditional positive regard, I aim to foster a strong therapeutic relationship that promotes trust and openness. I integrate spiritual principles and practices into the therapeutic process in my faith-based counseling approach. Faith can provide comfort, guidance, and hope during difficult times. By incorporating clients' beliefs and values into therapy, I help them explore their spirituality as a source of strength and resilience. I also recognize the importance of addressing the mind-body connection in therapy. Our physical health and well-being are closely tied to our mental and emotional well-being. I encourage clients to engage in self-care practices, such as exercise, proper nutrition, and adequate sleep, to support their overall well-being. As an experienced counselor, I have worked with a diverse range of clients and have experience in addressing various mental health challenges. Whether it's anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, or relationship issues, I am committed to providing personalized support tailored to each individual's needs. Outside of my professional life, I find fulfillment in spending time with my family, attending church, going on vacations, listening to gospel music, cooking, and reading. These experiences bring me joy and inform and inspire my counseling approach. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward healing, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose. Together, we can navigate your challenges and empower you to live a healthier and more fulfilling life.

Have you ever felt misunderstood by family and friends? Find it difficult to trust others including professionals? Have difficulty being seen as a person and not your condition? Do you feel alone? Do you struggle with adapting and accepting your chronic illness or chronic pain? Let's talk! I can help you build tools to gain strength and confidence in managing your personal challenges. I empower adults with chronic illness/ pain or a history of abuse to take back their control and create healthy supports in order to stay on a path towards healing. Our experiences with our body or from how others treat us create unhealthy pathways for self regulation often exhibited as anger or anxiety. The compassion and guidance I provide will rewire those pathways allowing you to be the best version of yourself. In our sessions together, we will work on making small manageable changes through mindfulness, changing behaviors and embracing a positive healthy mindset. It’s often scary to start therapy for the first time or even to go back to therapy but it is the best self care gift you can give to yourself.
