My Client’s Words

“I cannot say enough positive things about Samantha & my experience with  her. It is always so rewarding & fulfilling to interact with another person who is not only passionate about what they’re offering, but is a master in what they’re offering- & is fulfilling their soul’s mission. Yes, I would say Samantha is a master of her craft. It’s clear that she has spent countless hours learning, researching, & diving into information, as well as deeply connecting with her own inner wisdom.  She presents everything with a deep sense of care, purpose, compassion, honoring, trust, wisdom & clarity. I feel so thankful to have met her & been able to share my experience with her. I would recommend her services to every woman I know.” ~Danielle

“I could have gone to a therapist for a million years & not had the experience of feeling that valid & valued” ~ Gillian

If you truly cannot afford the financial investment please don’t hesitate to contact me.  If I cannot meet your needs by offering a sliding scale, payment plan, or work for trade, I will still share valuable resources & referrals. For more info about options for reciprocity, please see this page.
