My name is Sam and I use she/her pronouns. I grew up in Denver, Colorado and arrived in Vermont in 2009 to study environmental studies and food systems at UVM. I identify as a white, Jewish woman.


I have worked in agriculture on organic diversified farms and plant nursery operations. I’ve worked in the local food non-profit sector of Vermont as well. Prior to deciding to go back to school for my masters, I was working in a beautiful garden, delving into a deeper education in yoga and living in Portland, Oregon. I moved back to Vermont in 2021 to begin working toward my MS in clinical mental health counseling and am currently in my second and final year of the program.


My interests are varied but I take a person-centered, strengths-based, feminist approach to my work with clients. I’m interested in establishing a relationship of trust with clients through which I can support them in their self-exploration. I’m interested in centering client’s identities in the context of our society and culture, and helping clients explore what their identities mean to them.


When I’m not engaged in counseling work, I enjoy spending as much time as I can outside skiing, biking, hiking or walking with my four-legged best friend, Oliver. I also love spending time cooking and eating with friends.
