SAMANTHA LANE, LCSW
Whether you are experiencing more anxiety or overwhelm than you once did, illness, loss, difficulties with your partner, or just haven’t been feeling like yourself, it can be exhausting. You are tired of feeling this way, and may feel that the people in your life don’t understand what you are going through. You want to feel in control of your own life again.
Imagine a life where you feel motivated, empowered, and fulfilled. A life in which you are confident you have the tools you need to overcome whatever challenges life may throw at you. Where you are moving forward into the life you want to live, and have created for yourself.
As your therapist, I work with you to create a customized plan to get you feeling “back on track”. I understand that you are the expert on your own life. You have lived through and survived so much already, and you bring strengths you have already learned into our work together. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral approaches, mindfulness, and acceptance to help guide you to a place of balance and wellness. I use a flexible, individualized approach, as one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy. Together, we will identify and transform the patterns, thoughts, and behaviors that are no longer working in your life.
I have both personal and professional expertise working with individuals with cancer and their loved ones. Before working full time as a therapist, I worked as a social worker in both hospital and hospice settings. My other specialities include LGBTQ+ individuals, chronic illness, anxiety, OCD, and panic disorders, religious trauma, and grief.
