John Samaha, LPC


My focus is to create positive relationships with people and to help them build other strong and positive relationships in their personal interactions with those around them. My goal is to teach, guide, and support people to learn the skills necessary to build resilience and independence, and be able to find healthy support systems in their everyday lives. I strive to help others realize the strength within themselves to overcome difficult obstacles and life experiences. My diverse experiences working in different environments with young children, adolescents, and young adults has allowed me to build skills and interventions to work with those specific populations.
