About Michael Samar

I worked for ten years at the Veterans Administration Behavioral Health outpatient clinic. My primary focus was with veteran's and their significant others. My primary focus was trauma, addictions, compulsions, pain, and depression. I have extensive experience in working with couples as well. Over the past six months, I have been working in a private group practice. My approach is holistic, compassion, and accepting. The cornerstone of my treatment philosophy is motivational, helping each individual find a path that they can truly embrace. If you are interested in holistic modalities like mindfulness and other alternative healing therapies, then I can help you.
