Samantha Lavy

LMFTA, MA

Making the decision to see a therapist can be difficult. As a relationship therapist, Samantha dedicates herself to her clients with complete transparency and authenticity. She works with clients to find their inner strengths and resources to overcome the obstacles that may be keeping them ‘stuck’. Samantha works with clients to ‘zoom out’ and see the big picture: how the relationships in their life, including friends, intimate partners, family members and colleagues, impact the relationships they have with themself.

Samantha spent the first half of her career working in healthcare, including 19 years in the field of reproductive medicine. Working directly with infertile couples and LGBT growing families, she engaged with numerous fertility programs, surrogacy and egg donor agencies throughout the tri-state and worked with clients from all over the world. The decision to pursue a career in Marriage and Family Therapy made sense, as the guidance of a relationship therapist is an essential component of the process of fertility struggles.

As a daughter, wife, mother and stepmother, Samantha understands the unique and special roles we play in people’s lives. She has a passion for helping clients through strengthening relationships and navigating significant life changes to support happier, more connected lives.
