SAM WEISS, LCSW
Samantha (Sam) Weiss is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who received her Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California. Sam specialized in Clinical Social Work while attending school and is trained in motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness practices and solution-focused therapy. She utilizes these techniques to assist clients who suffer from addiction and help them cultivate motivation to achieve long-term sobriety. Additionally, she uses a family/social systems approach to help clients better understand their addiction and the impact it has on those around them. Sam believes that one of the keys to sustained sobriety is self-esteem, and she uses strengths-based techniques to help clients regain confidence within themselves.
Since graduation, Sam has spent two years working in a residential facility for individuals who suffer from chronic substance abuse. While there, she facilitated a mental health psychoeducation group, a relationship and healthy boundaries group, and relapse prevention groups. She also conducted individual therapy sessions on a daily basis utilizing the techniques that she learned in school. Sam believes in honoring the client’s unique experience and therefore emphasizes creating individualized treatment plans with achievable goals. Sam has a natural gift of empathy and compassion that allows her to create a strong therapeutic rapport with her clients as well as provide a safe space for them to explore and process their emotions.
Sam received her LCSW in 2018 and looks forward to continuing her education and training to aid those who are in need of mental, spiritual and emotional support.
