It is not easy to reach out for help. It takes courage to reflect on yourself and your environment, to grieve losses, to process trauma, or to change relationships. My name is Samantha Fuhrman, and I am part of a dedicated team of competent professionals seeking to be a safe place for you to get the help that you need.
I graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a Master’s degree in Social Work and am licensed in the state of New York. I have worked in a variety of fields, including homelessness, teen alternative schools and residential treatment centers, outpatient individual, child, and family therapy, and foster care and adoption.
While I am a generalist practitioner, most of my clinical experience has been in trauma, attachment, and adoption. I completed the Training for Adoption Competence program through the Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASE), and am an adoption-competent therapist. I am a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Practitioner, an evidence-based and trauma-responsive intervention. I am also a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor.
I assist parents with education and guided support through a trauma-informed, attachment-based, and strength-based lens. I use a variety of models to help individuals and families heal from trauma, feel empowered with effective parenting strategies, and develop deep connections with each other. I help individuals develop skills to name and regulate their emotions, and develop healthy coping skills.
Currently, I offer personalized counseling and psychotherapy sessions virtually through secure video conference.
