About Samonia Lay Barrett

You’re here, welcome! I am not sure what your needs are yet, but I am eager to hear, learn and embrace. Thank you for taking the first step in considering the option of therapy. I believe that it takes bravery to realize that help is needed and even more courage to take that first step in receiving it. Sometimes, we hear the word “brave” and we relate it to some impressive achievement. That could be true, but bravery also comes in the quiet moments, that few people get to see.

I want to help. Helping others discover their best selves is my lifelong dream. I specialize in assessing psychological and emotional issues in adolescents, young adults and families. I believe that healing is a collaborative effort that requires caring for the whole person without judgment. I strive to supportively assist my clients in clarifying their personal goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one approach for all individuals and issues, I use a variety of methods to create a tailored treatment that aims to helps inidviduals break unhealthy cycles, unlearn negative thought patterns and CULTIVATE in areas of personal growth.

As an experienced, passionate, caring, down-to-earth clinician, I am dedicated to your growth along your journey.

So, join me. I offer a free 15-minute consultation. Sometimes, that helps to ease any worries about the process.
