Samantha Eisenberg, LSW, MSW, MEd, LMT, does individual, couples, family and group therapy. She works with children and adults.
Samantha uses an integrative, strengths-based, collaborative approach in sessions to help clients identify the issues they find most important to explore, cultivate self-awareness and identify existing positive coping skills and supports, while using several techniques to tackle multiple sides of an issue. Samantha imparts psychodynamic and relational approaches to delve into the psyche and identify unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving. She uses cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients shift the unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that are limiting them from reaching their full potential of happiness and efficacy. Samantha also uses mindfulness methods to facilitate self-reflection, grounding and relaxation and enjoys helping clients explore the spiritual and abstract aspects of life. Additionally, Samantha is creative herself and enjoys having clients use art to explore and express themselves when appropriate.
Samantha believes that everyone deserves to find joy and fulfillment in their lives and that sometimes the guidance, validation, and support of a professional can help clients actualize their greatest potential. She would be honored to facilitate this for her clients.
Prior to joining the Center for Growth, Samantha spent the last three years treating adults and children in an agency setting in Philadelphia and has experience working with individuals, couples, and families. She has treated clients with grief, anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, addiction, ADHD, PTSD and trauma. Samantha has also greatly enjoyed getting to work with individuals and couples on issues of communication and emotional and physical intimacy. Before studying to do talk therapy, Samantha practiced for four years as a licensed massage therapist where she learned about how the body stores pain, how to release it, and how the emotional and physical body are interconnected. She has used this to help clients with pain conditions implement stretches, self soothe with deep breathing, and gain a greater awareness of how stress and mental health issues impact the body.
