About Samantha Buchanan
Everyone deserves a safe space to process life’s challenges. My goal is to help create that safe space so you can move past obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your full potential. I am most passionate about working with young women around identity and relationship challenges. Many of us struggle with body image and identity and my desire is to help you work through those challenges. I employ a variety of techniques, and my approach focuses on building a collaborative, empathic, and trusting therapeutic relationship, free of judgement. As a former athlete, I understand the effects of athletic pressure to be perfect. I love working with athletes, and anyone looking to find peace with food, exercise, and their body. I have a specialized certificate in eating disorders and enjoy working with individuals and families that are struggling with the effects of negative body image and disordered eating.
