Sami’s goal as a clinician is to create a safe and nurturing space where clients can openly share their story, struggles, and goals. She recognizes that everyone’s story is their own, and it is imperative in the work that Sami does to meet each individual where they are at in their journey, and tailor treatment depending upon individual needs.
