When life becomes difficult, we are not always equipped with all of the tools we need to help us survive and thrive during those challenging times. Samantha McNulty takes a strengths-based approach to help you not only identify challenges, but to acknowledge and enhance your strengths to grow through hardship and ultimately heal and prosper. Her style is warm, nurturing, and empathetic. She believes in treating all of her clients with unconditional acceptance and compassion.
Challenging yourself to grow beyond healing can be one of the hardest and most rewarding decisions a person can make. Samantha's father raised her with the concept that “the successful person is the one that does what the unsuccessful person is not willing to do”.
Loving ourselves enough to heal is something most people are not willing to do. She believes it is an honor to walk alongside you in your journey. Her zeal as your therapist is exploring and cultivating your strengths and helping you achieve your vision for an enriched life.
