Get to know Samantha Serbin
Samantha is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate (LPC-A) under the supervision of Toby Collins, LPC-S. Samantha received a BA in Secondary Education from Arizona State University in 2012 and graduated summa cum laude with a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University in 2023.
Samantha believes each client has a unique journey and aims to create a trusting and respectful environment. Samantha also engages with humor, which can create a comfortable atmosphere while blending in positive energy and support. Building a safe therapeutic relationship with all clients is critical, allowing them the space to make lasting changes and growth.
Samantha specializes in working with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families to cope with any challenges that interfere with daily life. Samantha’s experience as a teacher has exposed her to a multitude of situations in real-world settings, creating a solid foundation for her approach to therapy. As important as it is to create a strong connection with children and adolescents, Samantha also focuses on developing a close relationship with the parents/guardians and the school, if or when needed.
Sessions will be tailored to the individual or family’s needs and may focus on alternative communication styles, past behavior patterns, genuinely understanding and expressing emotion, and fostering compassion and empathy.
Each client enters therapy for different reasons, and Samantha will draw upon the techniques best suited to meet you or your loved one’s needs, including: Play Therapy, Sand Tray, Psychodynamic, CBT, Family Systems, Trauma-Focused CBT, and others.
