About Samantha Gorta
Hello and welcome! I am passionate about helping you reach your full potential during your therapy experience. I am originally from Arizona and have thoroughly been enjoying being closer to the water here in Florida.
I love working with all populations, and I primarily specialize working with youth/adolescents, families, and young adults. I have experience in a multitude of areas, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, autism, attachment, parenting, ADHD, major life transitions, and working with youth who are in out-of-home care. As a certified trauma professional, I utilize a trauma-informed approach during my sessions, and I am passionate about assisting my clients through trauma processing at a gentle pace.
I use a variety of evidenced-based treatment modalities that are tailored to fit your needs, which may include, play therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, solution-focused, art therapy, and person-centered. During our sessions, I enjoy integrating mindfulness practices as well as teaching you tools you can utilize outside of the office to help you build resiliency.
As your Therapist, I believe you have the ability to thrive, and I provide a safe space that is fun and empathic — as well as non-judgmental. I am so excited to meet and work with you!
