Samantha earned her bachelors in experimental psychology along with a minor in neuroscience at the University of South Carolina where she worked on a behavioral neuroscience research team. During her junior year, she realized she had a strong urge to get out of the lab and work more directly with people. She joined a group that mentored middle schoolers which solidified her desire to be a therapist and continue on with graduate school.

Samantha went on to pursue her masters in counseling psychology at Chatham University. She has clinical experience in assessment where she worked in a hospital setting assessing inpatient and outpatient populations for cognitive deficiencies. An internship working at an early intervention agency strengthened her desire to work with children. She has a special interest in mindfulness, and enjoys bringing it into her work with both children and adults.
