"Looking for a happier and more

If you are struggling with anxiety, relationship difficulties, you don't have to stay stuck there. There is hope for healing after difficult or traumatic experiences. 

 

I strive to provide a calm and peaceful presence in a safe place to explore and take an active role in your life. I look forward to partnering with you to find creative solutions.

"I speak play and creative healing."
 

I work with those struggling with anxiety, anger and other issues. I also work with survivors of domestic and sexual assault of all ages, and those directly and indirectly impacted by other traumas.  While some like to process problems through talking, others benefit from different therapeutic approaches that work with the brain’s ability to process events. I use play therapy, story writing, art, music, and other creative expressions to explore ways of healing. 

 

I am working towards my license as a clinical social worker under the supervision of Olivia Faries, LCSW and receiving play therapy supervision with Amy Reamer, LMFT, RPT.

I believe that as humans we all need a listening ear, a new perspective or technique to handle the many challenges of modern life. I believe that you have the ability to heal from your past and develop new coping strategies for the future.  I use brain-based treatment for issues like depression and anxiety and believe it is essential to healing.  I work from a strengths perspective and solutions focused approach and incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, mindfulness and art into many of my sessions.

I have worked in the area of adoptions, school social work, Christian counseling, child welfare, trauma and hospital social work. I have worked extensively with the U.S. military and others in the areas of depression, anxiety and conflict resolution as well as developmental trauma. I have helped with parenting issues related to autism, ADHD and other behavioral challenges.

Hi, I’m Samantha Reamer!

I’m a Brain Trainer, but you might also call me a Tiger Tamer. I help people who struggle with every day or life long challenges, who long to feel relief but are held back due to emotion regulation difficulties, anxiety, self-worth, social challenges, and more.I guide them through our process of calming the nervous system, so that they can begin to overcome and handle their challenges!

"Having trouble being heard or
using your voice?"

 

Struggling with a critical inner voice, connecting with others? Fighting daily anxiety, stress and feelings from past and current life experiences? Don't keep fighting alone.

 

I work hard to provide a warm, open-minded and client-centered environment. If you are feeling motivated to seek help, gain awareness into your challenges and develop your natural abilities to make positive changes in your life - come see me. Let's work together on finding fulfilling and healthy relationships, more confidence, strength and self-motivation to meet YOUR goals and solve problems independently.

 

It is not my job to "fix" you or have my own agenda, rather to recognize that you are the expert on your own life, and I support you in solving problems, improving the quality of your life, and eventually feeling confident enough to thrive!  

 

I have training in Family Systems, Play Therapy, Attachment therapy and Solution-focused Brief Therapy.

"Toby the Tiger Tamer"

Toby keeps finding himself in trouble. He promises not to do it again and tries to do what he is told to do. It's not working though. Once Toby learns more about his brain, the tiger, the hippo and the owl - life gets better. This book is to help parents, teachers and counselors teach their children about their brain and empower them to learn self-regulation.
