About Sam


At present, I am continuing to pursue advanced training in Clinical Hypnotherapy through training offered by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and earning my Ph.D. in Applied Psychophysiology at Saybrook University.

I earned my Bachelor’s in Linguistics at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, OH, and my Master’s in Counseling Psychology at Naropa University, Boulder, CO. The degree in linguistics with a concentration in neurolinguistics lead to a unique and specialized knowledge base with great relevance to counseling psychology and psychophysiology centered around human communication and the mind. Naropa’s program is defined by a philosophy of inclusion, the incorporation of a wide spectrum of therapeutic modalities, and a client-centered approach.

I pursued Post-Master’s training at the Gestalt Institute of the Rockies from 2012 to 2014, where I was certified as a Gestalt Psychotherapist.
