Our Team

Samar Adi

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)

Interested in exploring yourself, your world, and starting to make the changes you want in different areas of life? Want to improve your connections, ability to be vulnerable with yourself and others, as well as also feeling challenged by contradictory emotions and actions? Are past events getting in the way? Are you judging yourself or feeling guilty about how you’re thinking and feeling? While our experiences shape us, they don’t necessarily have to define us. Allow yourself to finally work on yourself in order to have the chance to create the life you want.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with extensive experience working with trauma, I can help with exploring the different layers of your life to help you understand yourself and your needs. We can work on improving relationships, increasing your self-worth, and healing wounds that continue to affect you.

Connection is an important part of treatment – I can offer a nonjudgmental space where you settle and fully explore yourself and what’s happening in your life. I would be honoured to be part of your journey working through stress, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, cultural and systems issues.

Luis Monreal Jr.

Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)

Have you been feeling unhappy and disconnected, almost as if running on autopilot? Do you often feel like no matter how much you accomplish, it’s never enough? Are you worrying throughout your day, feeling guarded with those around you? Is it hard to ask for what you need from others, and often feel resentful and unhappy in relationships? You are not alone and deserve support during these challenging times. 

Therapy offers a safe space where your unique challenges can be explored freely and without judgment. Together we can work to better understand yourself and your situations, identify effective and practical ways to cope with difficult symptoms that can be implemented quickly, and find ways to improve your overall quality of life. 

My approach is strength-based and trauma-informed. I have been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing evidence-based modalities. I work with adults (18+) individually. I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute consultation to get to know me and see if we are a good fit.
