I'm samantha rock
I help teens create confidence and problem-solve life’s challenges through art and activities that reprogram the brain’s unhealthy behaviors into healthy routines.
I do my best work with clients who want to actively engage in art and leisure activities to replace unhealthy coping strategies with positive lifestyle choices for lasting change.
I am a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS) and use this training to help teens practice establishing positive coping skills while also gaining confidence in their own abilities . My work history has provided me with extensive experience in helping clients to apply skills effectively to everyday life stressors so that they can cope with the situation before it becomes a crisis.
Through experiential activities like journaling, gardening, engaging in art, meditating and walking outdoors, I help teens step out of their comfort zone to explore tough life circumstances while also practicing the skills that restructure how they respond to difficult emotions.
In my graduate studies at Arcadia University, I focused on and have a passion for trauma-informed care. I’m intensively trained in multicultural counseling to provide my clients with clinical care through a lens unique to their identity and values.
When I'm not at work...
I enjoy spending time at the beach with family and friends. I love to dance, practice yoga, exercise and listen to audiobooks. I also love spending time with my rescue dog, Kramer and welcome any animals to sessions.
