Samara Rothstein


Samara is a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) with a genuine curiosity and care for people. By striving to fully understand where they come from and what they’ve experienced, Samara is able to help clients better connect to who they are and who they want to be. She believes that in order to help a client better navigate challenges, she must first understand how their thoughts and perceptions influence their experience.

Samara values human connection, and her warm nature provides clients with a space where they feel safe, seen, and understood. Samara is inspired by the strengths she sees in others and uses the therapeutic relationship to support clients as they nurture their relationships with themselves and others.

Samara meets a new client exactly where they are at, discovering what they need most and what therapeutic intervention will elicit the best results. She enjoys working with individuals of a wide age range and a variety of challenges, with the common goal of empowering clients to be their best selves.
