Helping children, teens and young adults 

achieve success,

 without misery  

 

About Me

Wave
Adults

My adult clients often report 

feeling held back by anxiety, 

depression, or life circumstances.  

My approach promotes deep

self-exploration and growth while

teaching skills to relieve

distressing symptoms, fast. 

Hello! I'm Dr. Samantha Brustad and helping teens and adults overcome life's challenges is what I do best. 

 

My mission is to help people quiet that self-critical voice that stops you from chasing your dreams and leaves you feeling stuck.  I want to help you overcome self-doubt in order to achieve your goals and feel confident about the person you are. 

Through our work together, you can develop the self-awareness, resilience and compassion needed to lead a life that is fulfilling and purpose driven.

Kids

Parents often express frustration, guilt & concern when they have witnessed their child struggle emotionally, socially or academically. 

When working with children, my aim is to determine the root cause of your child’s struggles, help you gain a clear understanding about what is going on, and provide practical treatment options.

Teens

As an admittedly "angsty teen" myself,

I enjoy working with young people 

undergoing the normal, yet painful 

process of identity development.
