Counseling Associates & Interns

Samantha Carey, PLPC

Sam Samantha (Sam) Carey is a 2023 graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University's Clinical Mental Health Counseling Graduate Program. She spent two semesters working with young adults in a college setting and focusing on issues such as identity development, LGBTQIA+ issues and exploration, grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, and life adjustments. She completed her final semester of internship working both in my office and at St. Christopher's Addiction Wellness Center.

Sam practices with a trauma-informed and client-centered perspective. She is warm and accepting, but she will challenge when she needs to. Sam has training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and she is excited about bringing this knowledge to couples who are interested in repairing or enhancing their emotional connection.

Sam has also completed Brainspotting training (Phase 1). Brainspotting is a therapeutic technique that utilizes the visual field to access and process deep-seated emotions, trauma, and psychological distress. It involves identifying "brainspots," eye positions correlating with emotional activation, to facilitate healing and release through the mind-body connection. In addition to processing trauma, Brainspotting can be utilized in performance enhancement, addiction recovery, and stress management. Brainspotting can be practiced both in person and through telehealth.

"I conceptualize behavior as always having a purpose, which often comes down to feeling safe. I find it important to highlight patterns and help clients identify where change may be helpful. I believe clients have all the power that they need inside, my job is to help bring that out! Together we can build empowerment, awareness, and skills to take with you for the rest of your life.
