Individual, Group or Couples Therapy:Individuals come to therapy to change their lives. Our emotions, whether we are conscious of them or not, impact every aspect of our life. Individual psychotherapy is conducted in a comfortable and nurturing environment with the goal of promoting positive changes in one’s life. It is beneficial in identifying and changing thoughts, feelings and patterns of behavior that are maladaptive. As Socrates once said, “A life unexamined, is not a life worth living.” Working with a psychologist provides you with the opportunity to get to know who you authentically to help foster personal growth. Some of the conditions treated include depression, anxiety, mood disorders, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, sexual disorders and many others. Most major insurances accepted.
Life Coaching: Life Coaching assists you in discovering what's really most meaningful and important to you and then to develop a plan to achieve those things. Coaching can help you eliminate any obstacles or blocks that stand in your way. A life coach is someone who will work with you to help you succeed. If you are a small business owner, entrepreneur, artist of all kind or anyone who is interested in making a dynamic change in their life, life coaching can be the tool you need to help you succeed. Lifestyle coaching is also available to help support you while you make lifestyle related changes such as nutritional and exercise changes. Coaching will help you with your life goals such as career, personal, health or weight loss goals. Transform your life today!
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET): NET is a mind-body technique that helps find stuck, negatively charged
emotions stored in your body and helps you release them. NET is useful
for phobias, general anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviors and more.
Emotions such as fear, anger, grief and many others can negatively
affect us long after the original event that caused them. When our body
fails to “let go” of these emotions we can find ourselves with
unexplained emotions, self-sabotaging behaviors
and destructive beliefs. Although we rarely see the link between the
past event and our present situation, NET can help identify the
unresolved event and help your body release its lingering emotional
charge for good. It is based on a proven combination of the latest
scientific research and centuries-old techniques used in Eastern
Psychological Testing: Dr. Samycia offers a full range of psychological testing and evaluation services. She provides testing administration and reports to assist in identifying and diagnosing emotional disorders and cognitive abilities.

Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy is a highly effective method for modifying a person's behavior, emotional content, attitude, unwanted habits, anxiety, pain management, personal development, sleeping disorders, and various other physical issues. Hypnotherapy for weight loss is also very common. Hypnotherapy is recognized as a rapidly emerging discipline. Hypnosis is one of the most effective ways to access the subconscious to create real change.
