Get to know Samantha Nusinow-Kolko

I understand how mental health can make or break future success. If we don’t take care of our mental health, how can we possibly achieve our own personal goals at our highest potential? 

When it comes to styles of mental health therapy, there is no cookie-cutter approach for any given individual. I build rapport and provide an inviting, calm, and peaceful environment where my clients can feel safe and secure to share feelings, thoughts, and experiences.  One of the most rewarding parts of what I do is being able to watch the transformation as my clients grow using their new skills. I value working with my clients and empowering them to be the best that they can be. I am a good listener, relatable, and offer my clients tools so they can navigate difficulties they’ve encountered in their lives.  I am dedicated to sharing valuable resources and support based on the individual needs of my clients.
